Producer Lynn Harris Selling Mid-Century Modern in Studio City (EXCLUSIVE)

Property snitch Kenya Tellsumbudee sent word that veteran entertainment industry executive Lynn Harris has her carefully restored and stylishly upgraded mid-century modern home in the secluded and discreetly wealthy Fryman Canyon Estates area of Studio City available as an off-market listing at just under $5.4 million.

During her tenure as a bigwig exec at Warner Bros., Harris shepherded a slew of long-titled pictures, like “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” She and her entertainment entrepreneur/branding-expert husband, Matti Lesham, purchased the property, according to tax records, in late 2005 for $2.4 million. The couple are currently partners professionally at the multiplatform Weimaraner Republic Pictures and produced the Blake Lively starring film “The Shallows,” opening June 29.

The single-story home was built in 1951, and sits behind gates on about half of an acre, with three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, in just over 3,300 square feet. The post-and-beam residence retains classic mid-century modern flourishes such as vaulted and beamed exposed-wood ceilings, terrazzo flooring, and huge expanses of windows that not only stretch from wall to wall, but also floor to ceiling. Interconnected living and entertaining spaces include a comfortably ample living room with a massive minimalist fireplace, and a dining area that easily accommodates 10.

A separate media lounge easily converts to a fourth bedroom, and a cozy, shelf-lined den/library adjoins a skylit kitchen expensively stocked with top-quality stainless steel appliances and monochromatically appointed with bright white countertops on high-gloss white lacquered cabinetry. Glass sliders in nearly every room open to secluded decks, mature gardens, an al fresco dining terrace with fireplace, and a swimming pool set into a sunny clearing.

The winding streets of the sylvan and conveniently situated Fryman Canyon Estates have long attracted high-profile homeowners, who currently include George Clooney, Teri Hatcher, Lucy Liu, and Bruno Mars.

The listing is handled by Jonathan Ruiz at The Agency.
