Producer Bruce Cohen Lists Bungalow Above Sunset Strip (EXCLUSIVE)

Oscar-winning “American Beauty” producer Bruce Cohen’s stylish mid-century modern bungalow, perched just above the Sunset Strip and designed in 1959 by acclaimed architect Lloyd Wright, has come available at $1.5 million. Also listed for lease at $10,000 per month, the not-quite 1,500-square-foot, two-bedroom and two-bathroom residence was acquired by the “Milk” and “Silver Linings Playbook” producer in early 1997 for $590,000.

The art-filled home opens to a slender entrance hall that steps down to a sun-soaked living room with blonde hardwood floors, fireplace flanked by geometric bas relief panels, and broad banks of floor-to-ceiling windows and glass sliders. It’s a couple steps back up to the kitchen that features a row of rectangular clerestory windows and a suede-upholstered built-in dining banquette. Both bedrooms benefit from an over-the-rooftops city-lights view, and the skylit two-car garage is set up as an office/studio. According to listing broker Ann Eysenring at The Agency, the courtyard around the pool, from which Catalina Island can be spotted on a clear day, has been the backdrop to events attended by political heavy-hitters, like former L.A. mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and current Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton.
