A Country English-style residence on one of Santa Monica’s most coveted streets, owned per property records by four-time Emmy nominated “Game of Thrones” co-executive producer Guymon Casady, has popped up for sale on the open market at a smidge less than $6 million. The house, just over a mile from the celebrated and typically thronged Annenberg Community Beach House, is also listed for lease at $20,000 per month.
Property records show Casady, a founding partner of talent management firm Management 360, producer on the upcoming Danny Boyle-directed Steve Jobs biopic and executive producer on “The Expendables” film franchise, acquired the property in the spring of 2011 for just a scosh under $3.3 million.
Current listing details indicate the 16-room residence — currently configured with four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms in just over 4,000 square feet — was originally built in 1925. Though it retains its original dormers and faux-timbered exterior, it has had “tasteful modern enhancements” on the inside that include an “inspirational kitchen/dining/family room reimagining” in which crisp and molding-free white walls and elegant marble countertops are juxtaposed against rustic wide plank wood floors and traditional multi-paned windows. The perfectly flat, quarter-acre-plus corner parcel has a broad and well-watered front lawn, a hedged side yard with super-sized sand box and a mere sliver of a backyard. Water-lovers take note: In this case, almost $6 million on a prime Santa Monica street does not get you a swimming pool.
Property records confirm Casady also keeps a 2,000-ish-square-foot mobile home in the surprisingly pricey Paradise Cove trailer park — described a few years ago in Vanity Fair as “the hippest neighborhood in Malibu” — where some of the other tricked-out trailer homes are owned or leased by a slew of showbizzy types who include Minnie Driver, Pamela Anderson and “SpongeBob SquarePants” creator Stephen Hillenburg.
