Homeland producer Gideon Raff has put his 1920s Mediterranean-inspired villa in California on the market for $2.4million.
The award-winning Israeli screenwriter bought the luxury home six years ago but it is now up for grabs at a much higher price – or $8,500 a month as an unfurnished rental property.
The 2,345 sq ft villa in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles, includes three bedrooms, three bathrooms, outdoor cooking facilities and a spa area, as well as ornately decorated wooded doors and windows.
It is being marketed by Berkshire Hathaway’s property arm and was listed on the market on Friday.
The listing describes the home as a ‘rare and secluded Mediterranean compound minutes above Sunset Strip’ in Hollywood Hills West.

According to Variety, Raff bought the home in 2013 for $1.4million.
Raff was the creator of Israeli series Prisoner of War, which ran from 2010 to 2012 and inspired the American version, Homeland.
Raff, 46, joined the U.S. adaptation as an executive producer and co-wrote the pilot episode in 2011, earning him an Emmy in 2012.
Homeland was also awarded the Golden Globe for best drama series in both 2012 and 2013.
