Callum Greene Lists Modern Architectural Home in Silver Lake

A strikingly modern mansion in the Edendale Heights nabe in L.A.’s Silver Lake area, owned, per property records, by film producer Callum Greene, has popped up on the market with an asking price of $4.25 million. Greene, whose money-minting professional credits include “Pacific Rim” and “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” purchased the 7,200-plus-square-foot, solar-powered residence in October 2012 for $3,070,000.

Designed by Los Angeles architect Barbara Bestor, built in 2006 for writer and producer Michael Ferris, and billed in marketing materials as one of the largest houses in Silver Lake, the boxy and voluminous abode has a total of six bedrooms and five full and two half bathrooms including a secluded master retreat, a private guest wing and a staff suite with separate entrance.

Known for her signature “Bohemian Modern” style — she wrote a book by the same name — Bestor clad many of the public rooms, including the entry, living room and dining rooms and small but very tall library, with ship lath-like wood cladding. The kitchen, fitted with every high-quality bell and whistle a chef could want, sits adjacent to a family room that opens to a courtyard-like dining terrace. Listing details also note an office, home gym, and game room.

The rear of the house embraces a smallish but smartly arranged backyard with flat grass pad, large sunbathing deck, and a mosaic-tiled swimming pool and spa. A corkscrew staircase winds up to a faux-grassed roof terrace with open-air pavilion and tree-framed view of the downtown skyline. The spacious house dominates a hilltop east of Silver Lake reservoir, maintaining privacy but putting the buyer close to the trendy attractions of nearby Sunset Junction and Echo Park.
