French doors open to an enclosed front patio, a front-facing balcony and the backyard. Behind the house sits a saltwater pool, a flagstone deck, a pool house/office and lawn. The cobblestone driveway is gated.

The comic book writer and artist’s Ninja Turtles, created with collaborator Peter Laird, became a cartoon series starting in the late ‘80s. Live action movies and animated films followed including “TMNT” (2007) and “Turtles Forever” (2009). Another series is set for this year and a movie in 2013.
