Chinese filmmaker Peter Chan gets top dollar for Hollywood Hills West home
Chinese film director and producer Peter Chan has sold a home in Hollywood Hills West for $3.265 million — $266,000 over the asking price of $2.999 million.
The Midcentury Modern-style house, built in 1957, takes in a 180-degree view of the surrounding canyon and cityscape from its hillside location.
Designed for indoor-outdoor living, the four-bedroom home has walls of glass that open to a lower deck with an infinity-edge swimming pool and spa. A second, wrap-around deck extends from the second level.
An open living room and kitchen area, a family room with a wet bar, four bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms are within more than 3,050 square feet of living space. The master suite has a sitting area and a skylight-topped shower.
The property previously changed hands two years ago for $2.95 million, records show.
Max Nelson, Daniel Stevenson and Damian Nelson of the Agency were the listing agents. Ben Salem of Rodeo Realty repped the buyer.
The 53-year-old Chan has directed and produced scores of films in Hong Kong including “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Father” (1993), “Bodyguards and Assassins” (2009) and “Dearest” (2014). His American films include the 1999 romantic comedy “The Love Letter,” starring Ellen DeGeneres and Tom Selleck.
