The onetime Hollywood Hills home of the late Louis Zamperini, whose life story was the subject of the 2014 film “Unbroken,” is back on the market at $3.75 million. The property last sold two years ago for $2.19 million.

The English Revival-style house, built in 1922, has a distinctive gambrel roofline and rolled eaves.

Do-it-yourself projects taken on by the Berlin Olympics runner and World War II prisoner of war remain in evidence. One such undertaking was the paneling in the dining room.


A great room with a fireplace and high ceilings, a reading room, a breakfast room, a workshop, four bedrooms and three bathrooms are within the 3,500 square feet of updated living space.

The gated house, set on one third of an acre, takes in city views.

Marina “Mina” Mullinax, and Nicole Contreras of Nourmand & Associates, are the listing agents.
