Jason Winer, an executive producer and director of the ABC comedy "Modern Family," has listed his three-level Hollywood-area town house for $599,000.
Part of a complex built in 1926 by Paramount to house its writers, the two-bedroom, 1 1/2 -bathroom bungalow has 1,330 square feet of loft-like living space, a private patio and a detached garage. The open-plan living room has an 18-foot ceiling, full-height windows and an adobe fireplace. There are refinished hardwood floors, a remodeled kitchen with stainless-steel appliances and updated bathrooms.
The courtyard unit was once owned by architect Frank Israel, who was known for his residential designs for entertainment industry players and public structures, including the Fine Arts Building at UC Riverside.
In addition to Winer's work on "Modern Family" (2009), his writing, producing and acting credits include MTV's "The Blame Game," which he created in 1998, and the film "The Adventures of Big Handsome Guy and His Little Friend" (2005) and its 2006 series.
Winer, 36, is selling because he is moving to a larger house in another Los Angeles neighborhood. He bought the town house in 2006 for $560,000, public records show.
Elisa Gil-Osorio of Sotheby's International Realty's Sunset office is the listing agent.
