Film producer Lawrence Kuppin has placed his seven-bedroom, 11,166-square-foot mansion in the Bird Streets area of Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills on the market for $29,500,000.
In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on Kuppin's listing of his longtime mansion on Mockingbird Place, which hit the market on Wednesday. We recognize that Kuppin is not a household name (and we usually prefer to write about either household names or "face" names -- i.e., public performers), but given the uniqueness of this property, we couldn't resist. Kuppin is best known for having co-owned (and eventually for having sold) the independent production company New World Pictures, which produced nearly 150 movies, including "Heathers," "Children of the Corn," "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," and a whole lot of horror films.
Built in 1922, Kuppin's remodeled Mediterranean-style mansion has 11 baths, large-scale rooms and a 2,500-square-foot-plus master suite, according to public records and listing information. Outdoor features on the gated, acre-plus property, which its listing agent bills as "one of the largest lots in the Bird Streets," include a private, 400-foot drive, a pool, a motor court with room for 15 cars, and city and ocean views, according to public records and listing information. Listing information calls the lot more than 67,000 square feet in size, while public records say that the primary lot measures 53,303 square feet.
