Husband-and-wife screenwriters Roger Simon and Sheryl Longin can put a period on their home-sale saga. The 1930s residence in the Hollywood Hills has sold for $2.2 million.
Providing a burst of color against the hillside, the multilevel house sports a green, salmon and tan facade before opening to a floor plan full of Spanish flair. Through a front door made of reclaimed wood sit bright living spaces splashed with Saltillo tile.
Beamed ceilings hang over the dining room, a center-island kitchen and the living room, which is anchored by a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace. Picture windows, as well as a covered balcony, take in canyon views.
There’s another floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace in the master suite, which opens to a balcony of its own. Three other bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms conclude the 3,600-square-foot interior.
In the front, there’s a courtyard. In the back, there’s a dining area overlooking a swimming pool and spa.
Paul Czako of Gussman Czako Estates handled both ends of the deal.
The property had been listed for $3.249 million when it came on the market last year. More recently, the asking price was $2.5 million.
Simon, 74, was nominated for an Academy Award in 1989 for co-writing the screenplay for "Enemies, a Love Story." Also a novelist, he adapted his book "The Big Fix" for the 1978 film of the same name starring Richard Dreyfuss.
