Stuart Cornfeld, a producer for the “Zoolander” films, has relisted his home in Hollywood Hills West for sale at $2.25 million. His search for a buyer started more than a year ago at an asking price of $2.65 million.

At whatever amount a sale eventually snags, the 1930s three-story is a prime example of the Streamline Moderne style. Curved walls, cove ceilings and sets of metal-framed windows blend with porthole cut-outs and period fixtures to give the 2,771 square feet of interiors a nautical vibe.

The living room and sitting area share a two-sided fireplace. An interior portal looks in on the breakfast area. The kitchen has been updated in keeping with the period style and features checkerboard floors. There are three bedrooms and four bathrooms.

The library/study has curved walls of bookshelves and opens to a patio.

Cornfeld, 66, is a producer for Red Hour Productions, which he operates with actor Ben Stiller. Among his film credits are “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story” (2004), “Tropic Thunder” (2008) and “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” (2013), in which he had a cameo appearance.

He served as an executive producer for the shows “The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail” (2014-16) and “Another Period” (2015-18).

Public records show he bought the property in 1985 for $400,000.
