The horror movie maven Eli Roth has put his Hollywood Hills Tudor on the market for $3,475,000.
The director of “Hostel” has enjoyed the three-bedroom, four-bathroom home built in 1926 for a lucky 13 years, after purchasing it in 2007 for $2.54 million.
“Eli has loved living in the house over the past 13 years. He was drawn to the home’s 1920s character and design,” says the listing agent, Darian Robin of The Agency.
“Over the years, Eli added an expansive home gym and sauna that, together with the theater, pool, private outdoor spaces, incredible views, and overall privacy, have made it the perfect place for him to live, work, and entertain.”
The “creative compound” hovers over Hollywood Boulevard on a double-wide lot. While the attractions of Hollywood are within easy reach, the privacy landscaping and a gated entrance protect the home from any creepy unwanted guests.
The multilevel spread measures 3,497 square feet. The exterior gives off classic Hollywood glamour vibes, but inside, the home is sleek and SoCal modern.
The grounds offer glittering views of the hills, the canyons, and Los Angeles from almost all the rooms, patios, and balconies. Even the pool offers sublime views, and the flagstone terraces and pathways were built specifically to take full advantage of those one-of-a-kind vistas.
The interior is surprisingly light, white, and bright—especially jarring when you consider Roth’s dark cinematic creations. Expansive windows, some of them arched, allow plenty of light to stream in, and dark wood floors solidly ground the rooms.
Architectural accents like custom-framed fireplaces, brightly colored Mediterranean tile, and specialty moldings can be found throughout.
Other elegant features include a spacious chef’s kitchen with a breakfast nook, and a master suite with an adjacent office, spacious walk-in closet, and a modern, spalike bathroom with a large soaking tub.
Robin says Roth has transformed the place into his own private paradise, but alas, it’s time for him to make an exit.
“Eli’s next project will be shooting in Europe for an entire year,” she explains, “and then he has two other films lined up that will keep him away. Since he won’t be in L.A. to enjoy it, he feels the time is right to part with the house.”
Although he’s known for directing nearly a dozen films, Roth, 48, has worn many hats, including those of producer, editor, writer, and actor. His most recent release was “The House With a Clock in Its Walls” in 2018—a PG-rated departure for the man associated with all types of horror.
