Producer Basil Iwanyk Lists Mandeville Canyon Spread

Big-budget movie producer Basil Iwanyk (“Clash of the Titans,” “The Expendables” franchise) has his casually luxurious residence in L.A.’s prime Lower Mandeville Canyon area up for sale at a hair under $6.5 million. The 1937 Monterey Colonial was purchased by the Thunder Road Pictures principal — who landed a critical hit at Cannes this year with the star-studded suspense-thriller “Sicario” — in the fall of 2007, for a touch under $5 million, according to property records.

Hidden behind a towering hedge and described in listing details as a “Hampton’s style home” with recent and “exacting” interior renovations by a “noted designer,” the ample but hardly huge two-story house measures in at a bit more than 4,600 square feet, with five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. Wood-floored formal living and dining rooms — the former with fireplace and the latter with custom wall coverings — are joined by generous informal spaces that include a window-lined sunroom with vaulted wood ceiling, and a family room with corner fireplace, built-in bookshelves and French doors. A gray-and-white marble-checkerboard floor in the spacious eat-in kitchen makes a stately compliment to snow-white cabinetry, a full suite of commercial-style stainless steel appliances and a massive, 10-seat marble-topped dining table lit by a trio of industrial light fixtures.

The not quite half-acre property manages to squeeze in a multi-car gated parking pad and three-car garage; a slate-tiled dining terrace and built-in barbecue; and meandering red-brick pathways and generous tree-shaded lawns surrounded by mature foliage. Set into a flagstone terrace behind the house, there’s a heated swimming pool and spa and, perched high on the hillside behind the house, a canyon-view gazebo.
