Venice home of late ‘Rocky’ producer Robert Chartoff sells for $3.05 million


A Venice home owned by Oscar-winning producer Robert Chartoff at the time of his death last year has sold for $3.05 million. The buyer was Jarret Myer, co-founder of the digital media company Uproxx and the hip-hop label Rawkus Records.

Sitting along the canals on a corner lot, the multilevel home has a private dock and a rooftop deck that overlooks the waterway. Inside, an open-plan layout and walls of windows take in the surrounding area.

The 2,500-square-foot interior includes an updated kitchen, a den, a dining area, four bedrooms and 4.25 bathrooms. The living room features a fireplace and sliding glass doors that open to a patio deck.


The master suite has another fireplace and a private balcony overlooking the canal.

There’s also a two-car garage.

The property came to market in April for $3.15 million — or about twice as much as Chartoff paid for the home in 2003: $1.65 million.

Diana Braun of Compass represented both ends of the transaction.

Chartoff, who often collaborated with filmmaker Irwin Winkler, has production credits that include six “Rocky” films, “Raging Bull” and “The Right Stuff.” His films received 40 Academy Award nominations and a dozen Oscars, including the 1977 hit “Rocky,” which won best-picture honors. He was 81 when he died last year.

Myer, 43, co-founded Rawkus Records in 1996 with Brian Bater and James Murdoch, the younger son of media mogul Rupert Murdoch. He currently serves as the CEO of Uproxx.
