Scott Bernstein, the longtime Universal executive turned independent film producer, is ready to call it a wrap in Los Feliz. He’s listed his character-filled home in the historic neighborhood for sale at $4.495 million.
Set high up from the street, the Spanish Revival-style home was built by prolific developer Charles A. Gault and completed in 1924. The four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom house has been updated while retaining such character features as arched doorways and groin vault-style ceilings and. Dark hardwood floors, colorful tilework and French doors add to the period elegance.
The multi-level floor plan includes a living room with a tiled fireplace, a formal dining room, an office and an eye-catching chef’s kitchen. Balconies on each level create additional space outdoors.
The house sits on about a quarter of an acre with a tiled swimming pool, fountains and patios. The grounds were done by noted landscape designer Michael Baer.
Tori Barnao and Gersh Gershunoff of Pacific Union International are the listing agents. Calls made to the agents’ office were not returned.
Bernstein previously spent a decade with Universal, where he served in a number of high-ranking roles including executive vice president of production. He left the company in 2014 to become an independent producer and has credits that include “Straight Outta Compton” (2015) and “Ride Along 2” (2016).
He bought the property four years ago for $2.46 million, real estate records show.
