Filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra lands a modern spot in Hollywood Hills West

Spanish film director and producer Jaume Collet-Serra has bought a contemporary-style home in Hollywood Hills West for $5.05 million.

The two-story house, built in 1938 and since renovated, has canyon and ocean views from its gated perch above the Sunset Strip. The open-plan interiors feature broad walls of glass, skylights and pocket doors that open to various patios and balconies.

A modern chef’s kitchen, breakfast nook, formal dining room, four bedrooms and five bathrooms are within 3,000 square feet of living space. In the living room, a projection screen pops down from the ceiling for movie watching.

Outdoors, there’s a swimming pool with a spa, decking and a built-in barbecue.


The house had been listed for $5.295 million at the time of the sale, records show. Ginger Glass of Coldwell Banker was the listing agent. Jonathan Massaband and Patrick Michael of Capital Investment Realty Group represented the buyer.

Collet-Serra, 42, is known for his 2005 remake of the horror film “House of Wax.” His other credits include “Unknown” (2011), “Run All Night” (2015) and “The Shallows” (2016).
