By Juliet Chung from The Wall Street Journal Asia
The Los Angeles home of the late Hollywood director Sydney Pollack is on the market for nearly $7.9 million.
Mr. Pollack, who died in 2008 at the age of 73 bought the Wallace Neff-designed house in the early 1980s with his wife, Claire, who died earlier this year.
Built in the 1940s, the home is on 0.8-acre in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood and has an oval dining room, peg-and-groove oak floors and a master bedroom with a wood-burning fireplace and his-and-hers baths.
The home also has a wood-paneled office, a wine cellar and a darkroom.
The late Ms. Pollack, who had an architecture degree, restored and added on to the house.
Her changes included creating a screening room with a wet bar and expanding the kitchen.
She also built a two-story guest house with a wooden deck and outdoor entertaining spaces including a sunken fire pit, a gazebo and a trellised patio.
The property also has lawns, an oval saltwater pool and spa and a koi pond. The seller is the family trust.
David Mossler of Teles Properties has the listing.
