Joss Whedon, who created TV's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and who is a prolific writer and executive producer in the sci-fi genre, has placed his four-bedroom house in Los Angeles' Brentwood area on the market for $3,695,000.

 

Props to the Los Angeles Times' Ann Brenoff for breaking the story last week of Whedon's listing of the 4,064-square-foot house, which was built in 1930 and which is close to the Brentwood Country Club. In addition, the indefatigable, prolific and always-thorough Deidre Woollard over at Luxist made Whedon's house her site's estate of the day on Sunday -- check out her take on the house when you get a chance.

Features in Whedon's house include five baths, two offices, a media room, a music studio and a kitchen/family room that opens through a wall of accordion doors to the outdoor world, according to listing information. Outdoor features on the 0.33-acre (14,327-square-foot) double lot include a gated front courtyard and "beautifully landscaped," parklike grounds, according to public records and listing information.

Whedon (shown here with "Buffy's" Alyson Hannigan) purchased the property in 1998 for an undisclosed price.

When we find out where Whedon is off to, we'll of course report it here.
