Actor-director Mario Van Peebles has sold his wooded compound in the Hollywood Hills for $1.225 million.
The nearly half-acre rustic retreat includes an early-1960s main house, patio space and a guesthouse. Custom details include stairway handrails made from recycled metals, a double wooden entry door, mosaic tile accents, a glass ceiling in the master bathroom and an outdoor brick barbecue. There are four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a fireplace and 4,255 square feet of living space.
Van Peebles, 56, was a director on the series “Boss” in 2011 and last year. His scores of acting credits include stints on "All My Children" (2008) and "Damages" (2007-09) and portraying Malcolm X in the film "Ali" (2001). He will star in “Blood on the Border,” set for October release.
When Van Peebles bought the property in 1989 for $875,000 it was his first L.A. home. He owns another house locally and parted with this one because his children are now grown.
Mark Bua of Keller Williams’ Encino-Sherman Oaks office was the listing agent. Flora Martin of Keller Williams Realty’s Encino office represented the buyer.
