Director Joel Schumacher Lists California Estate
November 08, 2012 - California
Filmmaker Joel Schumacher has listed his 7-acre Carpinteria, Calif., estate for $9.5 million.
Just outside of Santa Barbara, the compound was built by Mr. Schumacher on four separate parcels and includes a 6,500-square-foot main house with three bedrooms.
Built in 2000, it has both mountain and ocean views and was built in a modern-rustic style with reclaimed barn wood.
The home's large living room has vaulted ceilings, two fireplaces and a loft currently configured as an office.
A rotunda-shaped dining room has large windows overlooking a swimming pool. The master suite has a fireplace and a terrace.
The property also includes a guesthouse and a home for a property manager, each of which has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and a pool house.
Mr. Schumacher is selling because he's no longer using the property as much as he used to, according to a listing agent. Rebecca Riskin & Associates is handling the listing.
