Stone paths wind through the property, eventually reaching a patio with a swimming pool, spa and pool house. Canyon and city light views abound.

Bigelow, 67, bought the two-acre property in 1989 with her then-husband, filmmaker James Cameron, for $1.8 million, public records show. The house was built in 1996.

Joan Cohen and Victoria Risko of Sotheby’s International Realty hold the listing.

Bigelow, 67, was the first woman to win the Academy Award for best director for the war drama “The Hurt Locker.” The accomplished director, writer and producer also helmed such film projects as “Strange Days,” “Zero Dark Thirty” and “Detroit.”
