‘Brotherhood’ Co-Creator Blake Masters Buys Los Feliz Monterey Colonial (EXCLUSIVE)

Los Angeles, Calif.
$2.475 million
3,140 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms

Television writer and producer Blake Masters, creator of the three-season crime drama “Brotherhood” and a co-creator of “Law & Order: L.A.,” shelled out almost $2.5 million for a carefully maintained and largely original 1940s residence along a tree-lined street in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles. The five-bedroom and four- bathroom Monterey Colonial-meets-Hollywood Regency-style residence, with a white wrought-iron-railed second-floor balcony, measures just over 3,100 square feet and retains numerous original period details such as custom woodwork and casement windows.

A classic center-hall foyer steps down to a living room with a fireplace and French doors to the backyard, and the formal dining room is filled with natural light through a floor-to-ceiling bay window, while a roomy family room features a walk-in wet bar and a sound-baffling, button-tufted upholstered ceiling treatment. A main-floor bedroom and bathroom works well as a home office or a staff suite, and upstairs there are three more guest bedrooms plus a master bedroom with a private bathroom lined in vintage blue-green ceramic tiles. A multicolored flagstone-paved terrace outside the living and family rooms gives way to a lush expanse of lawn and a swimming pool surrounded by dense foliage and mature shade trees.

Masters, writer of the 2013 action comedy “2 Guns,” starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, and the creator, writer and producer of the sci-fi TV series “Falling Water,” additionally owns a three-story 1920s Spanish-style residence of about 3,000 square feet cleaved to a steep slope in the Hollywood Hills above Beachwood Canyon. He purchased the home in 2007 for a bit more than $1.5 million and has it available at a tetch less than $2.2 million.
