Jerry Bruckheimer’s ‘60s L.A. Stunner Asks $13M

Location: Los Angeles, California

Price: $12,995,000

Designed by Case Study architect Thornton Abell, the 1965 Siskin House in L.A.’s posh Brentwood neighborhood is an International-style beauty distinguished by glass-and-steel pavilion-like living spaces and private, meandering gardens. It’s also been owned by bigwig Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer since 1985.

Bruckheimer, who purchased the home for about $1.9 million, first listed the seven-bedroom, 9,030-square-foot house in July 2015 for $14.5 million. At the time, Curbed LA commenters thought the place was “amazing,” “exquisite,” and “a never-ending orgasm.” But now, a year later, it’s still lingering on the market.

In January, the property lowered its ask by about $1.5 million and had a brief pending sale in June. For whatever reason, that deal did not work out, so the Siskin House is up for grabs again. Full gym, pool, four fireplaces, ponds, and of course, the designer midcentury retreat—who wants it?

By Bianca Barragan

This 1959 house in the Hollywood Hills was designed by noted midcentury architect Ed Fickett, but it also has a celebrity connection. The house was the LA home of actress Ava Gardner beginning in the 1960s. Listing agent Kate Blackwood tells Curbed that Gardner’s ownership of the house was confirmed by the Ava Gardner Museum.

The house measures approximately 2,660 square feet and opens onto a living room with walls of glass, exposed beam ceilings, and a floor-to-ceiling rock fireplace.

The master bedroom features a cool blue-tiled bathroom with a unique concrete tub and sleek wooden shelving. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms in all.

The double lot property is over 10,000 square feet. The yard behind the house has a sturdy if simple tree house and steps down to a grassy area with a shaded deck. The list price is $1.995 million.
