Movie producer Steve Chasman, known for his action packed thriller movies such as Taxi, The Transporter series, The Bank Job, the famous The Fast and The Furious series, and the latest Fast & The Furious: Hobbs & Shaw, is selling his beautiful custom Pacific Palisades home. This house has a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean.
The Pacific Palisades is famously known for its celebrities including Billy Crystal, Goldie Hawn, Tom hanks, Ben Affleck, and very good friend Matt Damon. Well known sports figures who also live here are Sugar Ray Leonard and Alan Smolinisky – the owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers. This famous locality has also been home to Ronald and Nancy Reagan.
Named Shadow Mountain, the house is spread across 1.2 acres of sprawling lush lawns and gardens with far-reaching scenic views. The house has six bedrooms and six bathrooms that are designed in true California contemporary Mediterranean style – white and bright with wood-beamed ceilings and hardwood floors. The only room in the entire house that is not filled with light is the glamorous black-walled, fully black-furnished media room, which has contrasting wood floors and a fireplace. The entrance into the house is a large foyer with curving stairs to the upper floor of the house. The living room has a soaring beamed-wooden ceiling that acts like a foil against the white walls and the bright light from the big windows. The formal dining area is surrounded by arched windows. The home also houses a large eat-in chef’s kitchen that is great for entertaining family and guests, who love to be a part of all the action. The bedrooms on the upper floor enjoy the scenic views of the ocean and vineyards. The other special feature of this house include a fountain in the motor court, a side lawn that is surrounded by trees, which give the feel of a secret garden, a huge shaded swimming pool terrace, and a seating area. The house is situated in a 24-hour-guard-gated community, behind the gated motor court.
Steve Chasman and his actress-wife – Nadia Farès, who has previously appeared as Jade Agent Kinler in a 2007 action-thriller movie – War and as Pia in a 2007 horror movie called Storm Warning. Their home, sited within the most exclusive celebrity-rich community in the Pacific Palisades is now up for grabs, and is priced at a whopping $16.9 million. The listing agent of Shadow Mountain is Lisa Optican of Compass, Los Angeles.
