Four years after he died of leukemia at the age of 74, the Los Angeles estate of Emmy-winning television writer and producer Steven Bochco has gone up for sale for $35 million. Built in 1937 and designed by noted architect Paul Williams, and reportedly inhabited by actor Sylvester Stallone during the 1970s, the newly remodeled residence is located in the upscale Pacific Palisades Riviera neighborhood.
A New York City native who began his career at Universal Studios in the mid-’60s, Bochco created some of the small screen’s most beloved shows of all time, including Los Angeles Law, Doctor Doogie Howser, blue nyc police, murder one Y Hill Street Sadnessthe latter of which garnered an impressive 98 Emmy nominations during its 146-episode run.
Completely walled and fenced, and fronting a manicured lawn, the property includes a seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom home spread over a double lot spanning over an acre. A striking red front door leads into the Tudor-style structure, which boasts nearly 11,000 square feet of split-level living space. Numerous French doors also allow for seamless interior and exterior spaces.
Among the highlights: an entrance hall sporting a curved staircase topped by a decorative wood-beam ceiling. From there, a formal living room is warmed by a fireplace, and the gourmet kitchen is equipped with an island for dining, a wood-burning pizza oven, high-end stainless steel appliances, and a windowed breakfast bar. There is also a formal dining room, a fireside library with built-in bookshelves, and a family room equipped with a projection screen, plus a private wing for the guest apartment and wine cellar.
A luxurious upstairs master retreat sits below a vaulted ceiling and is complete with a fireplace, sitting area, and balcony with treetop views, along with double walk-in closets and baths; and outdoors, the park-like grounds are highlighted by a large pool and spa flanked by an open-air cabana, as well as several spots ideal for outdoor dining and entertaining. To top it off: a tennis court and a one-bedroom guest house with a kitchen and gym.
