Joe Roth Picks Up Contemporary House in West Hollywood (EXCLUSIVE)

West Hollywood, CA
(approx.) 4,000 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms

A brand new, ultra-contemporary residence in the heart of West Hollywood was sold for a hair under $3.5 million to a blind trust linked to prolific film producer and Hollywood executive Joe Roth. Built on spec behind a low stucco wall topped by a spiky metal fence on a leafy street just a couple of blocks from the trendy Third Street shopping and dining district, the two-story residence has five bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms in about 4,000 square feet of airy, crisply contemporary space with top-grade finishes.

Honed-marble floors in the foyer and a double-height gallery of stairs extend into the loft-like, open-plan living spaces at the rear of the house that include a living room with fireplace, a sleek kitchen with dove gray solid-surface countertops on lustrous, snow-white cabinetry and a dining room that comfortably seats eight. Floor-to-ceiling glass sliders disappear into the walls and merge the interior areas with an outdoor living room with stacked-stone fireplace and a small, lushly planted backyard with plunge-sized swimming pool and spa. An open-tread floating staircase with glass railing leads to the upper level where a trio of family bedrooms are joined by a den along with a master suite replete with fireplace, walk-in closet and spa-style bathroom with two-person soaking tub and glass-enclosed shower space set against a textured wall.

It seems unlikely the WeHo residence was acquired for the “Maleficent” and “Anger Management” producer’s own use, since the high-powered former chairman of both 20th Century Fox and Walt Disney Studios, who once owned a stunning Art Deco-style home in Santa Monica built in 1930 for silent film star Dolores Del Rio, already owns a sophisticated, 1930s Paul Revere Williams-designed mansion of more than 11,000 square feet on almost 1.25 acres of manicured grounds in the high-toned Holmby Hills area, which he picked up in 2011 for $21.5 million.
