‘Magic Mike’ Scribe Lists Home in the Hills for $3 Million (EXCLUSIVE)

Reid Carolin, writer and producer of the bawdy “Magic Mike” film franchise, has his privately sited Mediterranean residence in the hills between Hollywood’s Beachwood and Bronson canyons up for sale at a sliver less than $3 million. Carolin, who executive produced the 2014 blockbuster “22 Jump Street” and the 2013 action-thriller “White House Down,” purchased the property just over three years ago for $2.3 million. Listing details show that the thoughtfully upgraded and tastefully turned out 1920’s residence encompasses three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms in not quite 2,600 square feet, with nary a man-thong or stripper pole in sight.

Set well above the street for optimal privacy, the residence opens to a turreted foyer with curving-stone staircase that leads to amply proportioned formal living and dining rooms, the former with fireplace and hand-stenciled exposed-wood ceiling and the latter with terrace access. The somewhat compact but expensively refurbished all-white kitchen incorporates a wee and charming built-in banquette for informal dining and adjoins an office with built-in desk space. Upstairs two en suite bedrooms include the master with vaulted exposed-wood ceiling and marble-tiled bathroom, while a third en suite bedroom on the lower floor has a private sitting area that opens to a foliage-enshrouded deck. The terraced and tree-shielded backyard includes a palm-shaded swimming pool, and listing photographs show the street-level two-car garage done up like a proverbial man-cave with wall-mounted flat-screen TV, weight bench and ping-pong table.

The property is just a stone’s throw from homes owned by Bob Odenkirk, Danny Masterson & Bijou Phillips and Craig Ferguson, whose multi-residence compound was listed last year at $5.5 million, then reduced to $4.7 million.
