James Robinson, chairman and chief executive of Morgan Creek Productions, has listed his estate on an acre in Bel-Air for sale at $23.95 million.

The Colonial Revival-style house, built in 1935, has a symmetrical, wide front and a two-story portico supported by four broad pillars. Sets of black shutters create visual contrast against the white-painted facade.

Inside, grand living spaces recall an era of entertaining and luxury. Parquet and tile floors, crown molding and wainscoting are among the appointments. The family room centers on a speakeasy-style bar. There are five bedrooms, six bathrooms and four fireplaces in all.


A swimming pool, outdoor kitchen and brick patio with a fountain sit at the rear of the property. Also within the grounds is a three-bedroom guesthouse and a detached three-car garage.

The property last changed hands in 1993 for $2.5 million, property records show.

Stanley Richman of Compass holds the listing.

Robinson co-founded Morgan Creek Productions in 1988 with former 20th Century Fox and Walt Disney Studios chairman Joe Roth. The film studio has released such box-office hits as “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” (1991), “The Last of the Mohicans” (1992) and “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” (1994).


More recently Morgan Creek Productions co-produced the film “All Eyez on Me,” the biographical film about rapper Tupac, in theaters in June.
