Michael Brandt, a writer and executive producer for such “Chicago” franchise shows as “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago Med” and “Chicago Justice,” has found a new spot on the West Coast. He’s bought an estate in Brentwood for $5.11 million, or roughly $1 million less than the original asking price, records show.
Surrounded by trees, the two-story home sits at the end of a long driveway. A courtyard anchored by a sycamore tree sits just outside the front door, which opens to a three-story entry.
The roughly 6,500 square feet of interiors is characterized by clean lines, walls of glass and indoor-outdoor living spaces. The main floor holds a remodeled chef’s kitchen, a living room with a wet bar and a chandelier-topped formal dining room with pocket glass doors. Five bedrooms, six bathrooms and a powder room complete the floor plan.
A balcony overlooks the backyard, where a spacious patio and outdoor kitchen sit next to a swimming pool and spa. Elsewhere, stairs lead down to a sports court.
David Offer of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties was the listing agent. Robert Winans of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage represented Brandt.
In addition to television dramas, Brandt, 49, also has found success in film. He wrote and directed the 2011 action movie “The Double,” and also co-wrote “Catch That Kid” (2004), “3:10 to Yuma” (2007) and “Wanted” (2008).
