Producer Michael De Luca Lists in Brentwood (EXCLUSIVE)

Veteran showbiz exec and movie producer Michael De Luca has hoisted a comfortably posh home in the discreetly fancy-pants lower Mandeville Canyon area of L.A.’s Brentwood community back up for sale at $7.5 million, even though he and his wife, former “Bachelor” contestant Angelique Madrid De Luca, only snatched the place up less than two years ago, for a sliver more than $5.8 million.

The nearly 6,100-square-foot, professionally decorated Hamptons-style spread has six bedrooms and eight full bathrooms that online marketing materials parse out as three en-suite family bedrooms and a master suite with two-way fireplace and two fitted walk-in closets, plus a main-floor guest suite with exterior entrance and a staff suite tucked behind the kitchen. Formal living and dining rooms — the former with fireplace; the latter painted lavender — are joined by a small library with climate-controlled walk-in wine closet and a petite but state-of-the-art media room with blackout curtains. The colossal, double-island kitchen opens on one side to a whimsically wallpapered breakfast room and on another to a family room with gold-leafed coffered ceiling and a bank of accordion-fold glass doors leading to a curtained veranda that overlooks a grassy children’s play area, saltwater pool and spa, dining terrace with fire pit and built-in barbecue.

The three-time Oscar-nominee — who once rather cheekily served McDonald’s on silver platters at a star-studded post-Oscars bash at Madonna’s former Beverly Hills mansion — previously owned a clapboard-sided Colonial in a slightly less coveted if still premiumly priced pocket of Brentwood that he scooped up in early 2008 for $4.15 million, listed in August 2014 at $5.2 million and soon sold for $4.75 million.

The property is represented by Sharona Alperin at Sotheby’s International Realty.

    While undeniably well-finished, there is a little too slick, a little too cool vibe about it that makes it seem less of a home to be lived in & more of a showplace to impress people you wouldn’t ordinarily invite home in the first place…

    Gorgeous looking place. Not sure who he is, though. Sounds vaguely familiar.
