‘Friends’ composer Michael Skloff sells Hollywood Hills Midcentury for over asking

“Friends” composer Michael Skloff has sold his Midcentury Modern-style home in the Hollywood Hills for $1.78 million, or $85,000 more than the asking price.

Spanning over half an acre, the double-lot property centers on a cozy one-story built in 1961 by Hollywood production designers Dean Tavoularis and Joel Schiller. A stripped-down gravel patio under intersecting beams marks the entry.

Inside, walls of glass bring the outdoors into the sunny floor plan, which holds one bedroom and two bathrooms in 1,156 square feet. Built-ins line the living room and dining area, and the center-island kitchen offers slick white cabinetry. Dark hardwood floors provide contrast.


A wraparound patio takes advantage of the home’s hillside perch, boasting views of the canyon and city. The kitchen, living room and bedroom all open directly to the outdoor space.

Howard Stevens and Levi Freeman of Nourmand & Associates held the listing, according to the MLS. Mica Campbell of Keller Williams Realty Los Feliz represented the buyer.

In addition to composing for 236 episodes of “Friends” — which was created by his ex-wife Marta Kauffman — Skloff also has credits for the comedy series “Dream On” and “Jesse.”

He picked up the place five years ago for $800,000, real estate records show. | Twitter: @jflem94
