YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: A Pacific Palisades estate long owned by prolific producer Caryn Mandabach has come for sale with an asking price of $12.5 million. The veteran entertainment industry mover and shaker, who has produced a long list of iconic and groundbreaking television programs such as “One Day at a Time,” “The Cosby Show,” “Roseanne,” “That ‘70s Show” and, more recently, the sublime “Nurse Jackie,” purchased the property in March 1994 for $3,925,000.

Set behind gates on nearly an acre of lushly landscaped grounds, the three-story main house, a California contemporary built in 1985 and designed by acclaimed architect Peter Choate who designed homes for scads of entertainment industry luminaries including Mel Brooks, Ursula Andress, Ryan O’Neil, Linda Rondstadt and Sharon Stone, has 7 bedrooms and 9.5 bathrooms in 6,980-square-feet plus a guesthouse of unspecified proportions and two two-car garages. Carved wood doors set into a double-height stone wall open to interior spaces that listing details indicate includes both formal living and dining rooms, the former with a fireplace, along with a library, family room and a kitchen with walk-in pantry. Living spaces on the main, middle level open to a spacious, flagstone paved and awning shaded terrace with verdant, resort-style views over the generously watered and carefully manicured golf course at the prestigious Riviera Country Club and listing details state there are “some ocean views from the upper level.” Water pours over a tumble of boulders into a swimming pool and spa with flagstone terracing that’s tucked away in a tree-shaded glade between the main house and guesthouse.

A quick spin through property records indicates Miz Mandabach, who founded and runs an eponymous, transcontinental film, TV and digital production company based in London and Los Angeles that currently produces the compelling period drama “Peaky Blinders” for the BBC2, now available for streaming on Netflix, has additionally owned an apartment in a well maintained and updated but otherwise ordinary tenement building in the trendy boutique-packed Noho neighborhood in lower Manhattan that property records show was acquired in April 2007 for $695,000.
