Filmmaker Kirk DeMicco Lists Palisades Residence


Among the idyllic streets near Palisades Village, filmmaker Kirk DeMicco’s Cape Cod-inspired residence just hit the market with a price tag of $4.3 million. He purchased the property for $3.53 million four years ago.

This charming, two-story home in the Alphabet Streets has five bedrooms and five bathrooms, and a spacious roof-top deck with unobstructed, 360-degree views.

Constructed in 2008, it has an interior of 3,838 square feet and sits on a 6,036-square-foot lot. The home comes equipped with central heating and air conditioning, as well as a security system and fenced yard.

Situated a 10-minute walk to Palisades Village, it’s in a prime location with a sought-after school district that includes Palisades Charter Elementary School, Paul Revere Charter Middle School and Palisades Charter High School.

There are three bedrooms upstairs, including a master bedroom with natural lighting and ocean views. The large size of the fifth bedroom makes it a flexible space for an office or playroom.

The modern kitchen comes with a breakfast nook, a Miele espresso machine, Carrara marble island, walk-in pantry and Viking appliances. The front parlor opens up to a veranda to sit outside and enjoy the California sunshine.

The backyard is decked out with a firepit and an outdoor barbecue area with heaters and a spa. Plus, there’s a two-car parking garage—making four parking spaces in all.

The listing is held by Lisa Kirshner with Compass.

DeMicco wrote and directed “The Croods,” nominated for Best Animated Picture at the 2013 Academy Awards, and “Space Chimps.”

He is co-directing a new animated musical, along with Brandon Jeffords, according to Sony Pictures Animation. Slated for release November 2020, the movie, “Vivo,” features songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
