PRICE: $3,695,000
SIZE: (approx.) 2,300 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: An ocean-front duplex penthouse in Marina Del Rey, CA, designed by innovative Ireland-born and L.A.-based architect Lorcan O’Herlihy and owned by screenwriter/producer Allan Loeb has come to market with an asking price of $3,695,000. Mister Loeb, who produced the 2010 Jennifer Aniston rom-com “The Switch,” penned the screenplay for the 2011 Jennifer Aniston rom-com “Just Go With It,” and wrote and produced the upcoming silver screen drama “Collateral Beauty” featuring Will Smith, Keira Knightley, Kate Winslet and Helen Mirren, purchased the approximately 2,300-square-foot beachfront perch in April 2013 for $2.75 million.

The three-bedroom and 2.5 bathroom two-story aerie, anchoring the northwest corner of nine-unit three-story building, has a double-height living room with honey-toned hardwood floors, a massive stacked stone fireplace, and a stunning two-story wall of wood-trimmed corner windows that open to a west-facing terrace with unobstructed, sky, beach and ocean views. It’s two steps up to a concrete-floored dining space open over a peninsula snack counter to a warmly sleek kitchen outfitted with unadorned, honey-toned wood cabinetry and an expensive collection of name-brand stainless steel appliances. Beyond the kitchen a sliding panel opens to an en suite bedroom with custom built-ins that incorporate loads of enclosed storage and a desk space. At one end of the upper level master suite, which is completely open over a glass railing to the living room below, a catwalk passes over the living room and leads to a small, cantilevered oceanfront balcony. At the opposite end, wood-trimmed glass sliders lead to a much larger, partially pergola-shaded rooftop terrace decked out with a lush plantings, a raised fire pit, an outdoor kitchen and what listing descriptions describe as an “adjoining third bedroom, office or gym.”

A quick spin through various property record databases indicates Mister Loeb previously owned a single-family residence near the top of Nichols Canyon that he picked up in 2008 for $2.03 million and sold in 2014 for $2.12 million and he additionally owns a loft-style condo at the Broadway Hollywood building in the heart of downtown Hollywood bought in April 2014 for $740,000.

The penthouse is represented by Mark Kitching at Partners Trust.
