Marc Blucas of 'Buffy' Lists Homes He Renovated Himself
"Marc did it all himself," listing agent Juliette Hohnen of Teles Properties told HousingWatch. The single-family homes located at 11938 and 11930 Currituck Drive, are listed for $1,639,000 and $1,489,000, respectively, with only one other property sitting between them on a cul de sac.
"If the middle house came up for sale [by a different owner], you can buy that third house and then you'd have a 20,000-square-foot lot in the middle of Brentwood," says Hohnen. "It would be the most incredible site to develop -- to put a big house up on it."
But for prospective buyers, once they get a look at Blucas' handiwork (pictured below), they just might not want to tear down these well-cared-for homes.
The larger of the two homes, a 1,766 square-foot 1960's-style ranch, originally had a lot of small rooms, but Blucas knocked down walls to open the space. "It is loft living in Brentwood for the hip and cool people who might like living in Venice, but want to live in a safe, ritzy area, near the schools," says Hohnen.
For the renovation, Blucas used reclaimed materials, such as a bar that he personally found and put in himself, says Hohnen. This three-bedroom, two-bath home has polished concrete floors and beamed ceilings, a den and an office.
The other home, which Blucas purchased first and at one point rented to Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen, is 1,218 square feet with two bedrooms. It sits at the end of the cul-de-sac and could be a starter home or a Westside pied de terre, says Hohnen. It has stainless steel appliances and hardwood floors, as well as a hot tub on the deck.
Blucas, who last year married journalist Ryan Haddon (ex-wife of Christian Slater), is trading up for a more space.
"He has two kids and needs a bigger place," says Hohnen. "He'd like to sell as soon as possible."
