Movie director Nick Cassavetes, perhaps best known as the auteur behind The Notebook and as the son of the late legendary actor and independent filmmaker John Cassavetes, seems to be having a little bit of trouble finding a buyer for his Hollywood Hills house, TMZ reports. As a result, he's dropped the asking price by some $400,000, to a little under $4.4 million.
The house sprawls over 4,370 square feet, with five beds and four baths. Cassavetes first put it up for sale back in June, when it was priced at close to $4.8 million. It's located on an expansive lot of more than 20,400 square feet, in the exclusive Hollywood Hills neighborhood of Mt. Olympus, which gives the occupant of the house a sweet combination of great views and nearly secluded privacy. Then there's the spa and heated swimming pool out back.
The property's own official real estate listing goes on:
"Each room leads outdoors to an enormous flat yard with a heated pool & spa. Bright open floor plan with Fleetwood doors, large kitchen with six burners and two kitchen islands, built-in steamer, Gaggenau appliances, three washer dryers, full security and privacy, keyless entry and hardwood floors. Upstairs offers two separate master suites plus two additional bedrooms, each complete with an indulgent spa bathroom with steam showers and one large round bathtub. The property includes a downstairs guest room, state-of-the-art security, three-car garage, and a full-sized back-up generator."
The price drop is reportedly motivated by Cassavetes's desire to sell the house as quickly as possible, so hopefully for Nick's sake someone will come forward with a satisfactory offer soon. In the meantime, there's an unusually stylish real estate video from Interior Pixels and his real estate representative Linn Renee Sivertsen of The Agency making the rounds to show off the property.
