Takashige Ichise, producer of Ringu, which was remade as The Ring, is selling a Los Angeles residence once owned by movie mogul Samuel Goldwyn.
The seven-bedroom house on Camino Palmero Street below Runyon Canyon was listed at $4.619 million and went into escrow with an undisclosed buyer Oct. 11.
The walled 6,488-square-foot Neoclassic residence includes Hollywood touches like a script-reading room, says Rodeo Realty agent Josh Buxbaum, who is representing the buyer and seller.
The property also includes a guesthouse and a pool and sits on about three-quarters of an acre. The deal is expected to close by year’s end.
