A recently remodeled home in the trendy and spendy Bird Streets hood above L.A.’s Sunset Strip, owned by film and television producer Marty Bowen, is now available off-market, according to digital marketing materials, with an asking price just shy of $4.3 million. The “Twilight” and “The Fault in Our Stars” producer, who also produces the TV series “Rosewood,” acquired the updated 1930s traditional in November 2002 for $1.68 million.
Dark-chocolate-toned hardwoods run throughout the 3,500-square-foot residence’s main-floor living and entertaining spaces that are comprised of a living room with a white-brick fireplace and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, a den with a vaulted and skylit ceiling, a dining room with French doors to the backyard, and an expensively outfitted, all-white eat-in kitchen with marble counters. There are two guest bedrooms on the upper level, along with a master suite complete with a fireplace, a walk-in closet, and a marble bathroom. The house opens to a roomy flagstone terrace with a built-in grilling station and a swimming pool and spa privately set into a sunny, tree-ringed clearing.
Bowen and his wife, Catherine, also own a lovely if démodé 4,300-square-foot house on a sought-after south-of-
Sunset-Boulevard block in Brentwood’s casual but classy Brentwood Park neighborhood, which was acquired, per property records, in early 2014 for $7.15 million, and is also, as it turns out, up for sale for nearly $9.7 million.
