Television composer and songwriter John Henry Kreitler and his wife, jazz vocalist-percussionist Patsy Meyer, have put their home in Valley Village on the market for $1.299 million.

The French Country-inspired home, built in 1930 and since updated, features a detached studio that the couple use for recording music, film editing and post-production work. The 1,000-square-foot workspace replaced a four-car garage on the property and includes a control mix room, an isolation booth, a kitchen and an office as well as a separate entrance and additional parking.


Within the main house is an open-plan kitchen, a dining room with pitched ceilings and a family room. The master suite has a walk-in closet and decorative tilework in the bathroom. Another bedroom has a wood-burning fireplace and French doors that open to the swimming pool.

Including a 900-square-foot guest house, which has its own kitchenette and washer/dryer unit, there are four bedrooms and and four bathrooms.

The couple bought the house more than a decade ago for $573,000, records show.

Jeff Hartman of Rodeo Realty holds the listing.

Kreitler has won Emmys for his work on the shows “The Guiding Light,” “Another World” and “Passions.” His other credits include the series “Friends,” “Melrose Place” and “Saturday Night Live.”

Meyer, a three-time Emmy nominee, has toured with such artists as Patti Austin and Peabo Bryson.
