Hostel director and horror film icon Eli Roth has just listed his Tudor style home in Los Angeles on Friday for a little under $3.5 million.
The compound was originally built in the 1920’s, though Roth updated and added a great deal of modernity to the property while still keeping with the classical design, according to listing agent Darian Robin. The home features 3 bedrooms and four bathrooms. Ms. Robin added that “He created this compound for himself,” and said “The things he added to the house—the gym, the sauna, and he extended the terrace off the office—it just has become the perfect escape in the middle of the city.”
It’s worth noting that Robin sold the property to both Roth and the property’s previous owner. One of the bedrooms was converted to a home theater with bookshelf-lined walls. The house also features several stone terraces, with nooks built for dining, lounging or simply just enjoying the views of the Pacific Ocean and downtown.
Roth stated in an email to Mansion Global that: “The home has a fabulous creative energy,” he said “When I wasn’t on location filming, once I was at home, I rarely left. I could sink into the theater to watch movies endlessly, work out in the gym, relax in the pool and spa, and there are countless spots to write or read.”
Roth also had this to say about the home: “It’s also a great house for entertaining,” Roth continued. “We had some legendary parties there back when that was allowed. It’s a beautiful house and it was very good to me, and I hope those creative vibes pass on to whoever enjoys it next.”
The house sits on a double lot and retains the classic Tudor style timbering as well as interior elements such as dark wood floors and a stone fireplace. Ms. Robin also mentioned the gated entrance and the home’s proximity to the sunset strip. In spite of its location it’s very quiet.
The home additionally includes French doors and large windows everywhere, so every room has a view. There is also a primary living space with built in window seating, a fireplace, a chef’s kitchen (with wine stores), a breakfast nook and a formal dining area.
Roth originally purchased the house for $2.5 million in 2007 according to the property reports. Roth is most known for his films Hostel and Cabin Fever as well as his appearance in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds.
