Oscar Nominated ‘Arrival’ Producer Dan Levine Lists Spanish Bungalow in Los Angeles

Los Angeles, Calif.
$2.295 million
2,588 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms

A modern-minded 1920s Spanish bungalow in the centrally convenient Beverly Grove area of Los Angeles owned by film producer Dan Levine has come available at $2.295 million. Levine, an executive producer for the 2004 rom-com “Along Came Polly,” which did almost $172 million in worldwide box office on a production budget of $42 million, and a 2017 Oscar nominee as a producer on the critically acclaimed sci-fi mystery “Arrival” starring Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner, purchased the property just over ten years ago for $1.995 million. Partially obscured from the street behind a low wall and a picturesque thicket of palm trees, the single-story white stucco bungalow measures in at 2,588-square-feet with three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.

Designer-done interiors feature high-gloss medium-brown hardwood floors and crisp, art-friendly white walls free of ceiling moldings and punctuated with dark-trimmed windows and French doors. A central entrance gallery is flanked by a lounge or potential formal dining room with inset display niches and floating shelves and an airy living room with a vaulted ceiling, a huge picture window that looks out on the front yard and an imposing, white stucco fireplace with terra cotta tile hearth. The roomy dining area is informally open to the sleekly renovated kitchen that features white marble countertops on dark chocolate cabinets, a large island with integrated snack bar and high-end stainless steel appliances.

Frosted double glass doors in the dining area open to one of the two guest bedrooms that shares a hall bathroom where the glass-enclosed shower is lined with olive green ceramic tiles while the master suite, privately situated at the rear of the home, provides French doors to the backyard, a fitted walk-in closet/dressing area and a roomy, marble-accented bathroom lit by a capiz shell chandelier.

Compact by almost any standard and privatized by high hedges and towering stand of bamboo, the backyard offers an small cabana for shaded lounging and a swimming pool and spa set against a mosaic-tiled water feature. At the end of a long driveway that runs alongside the house and finished with drywall and a concrete floor, a single-car garage is easily converted to a gym, artist studio or pool house.

The listing is held by Jackie Smith, Head of The Jackie Smith Group at Compass.
