    Screenwriter, producer and director Diablo Cody is selling her hip, gated Hollwood Hills home! Cody and her husband Daniel Maurio purchased the home on August 26, 2008 for $1,220,000. Five years later, they’re asking $1,299,000 for the 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2,206 square foot home.

    Cody achieved critical acclaim and success for her 2007 debut script Juno, winning awards such as the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, the BAFTA Award for Best Original Screenplay and the Writers Guild of America Award for Best Original Screenplay. Now that she’s a bonafide Hollywood success story, Cody and her family are making moves.

    Cody and Maurio’s mid-century modern home sits on the famed Mulholland drive and is surrounded by multimillion dollar estates. A circular driveway has ample parking, as evident by the 19-foot 2009 Airstream International trailer parked there. The trailer comes complete with a bed, bathroom and dinette, and can be included if the price is right. The trailer is semi-famous, as it was the set of Cody’s “Red Band Trailer” talk show.

    Behind the gates, you’ll find a private tropical backyard with pool, waterfall and spa.

    Heather T. Roy and Learka Bosnak of Teles Properties, Inc. are representing Cody and her husband in the sale.

      4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, 2,550 square feet, guest house.



      A-list director Judd Apatow, famous for movies like ’40 Year Old Virgin,’ ‘Bridesmaids’ and ‘Knocked Up,’ and his actress wife Leslie Mann have just purchased a Malibu Colony home for $10,825,000 from the estate of late ‘Pretty Woman’ producer Laura Ziskin. Property records show that the deal closed on March 19, 2013.

      The Apatow/Mann family’s new oceanfront contemporary cottage is theirs just in time for summer! The home is situated in the exclusive guard gated and celebrity-laden community of Malibu Colony. A romantic 1930’s bungalow, the home is tranquil yet chic and comfortable and sits directly on the beach. A gourmet kitchen and cozy family room open to a private, lush courtyard entry. The living room, dining room and cozy sunroom all feature expansive ocean views and lead to patios and the private Colony Beach. The second floor features 3 ensuite bedrooms.  The large master bedroom overlooks the Pacific Ocean through a wall of glass. The master also includes a wood-burning fireplace and a spacious patio leading to the sand. The property also features a two-car garage and a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom guesthouse.

      According to other plugged-in real estate sources, the Apatow/Mann family are looking building a massive custom home on a lot they purchased in Santa Monica last year for $8,600,000. Their forthcoming custom digs must be something amazing, because they’d be decamping from a home in Brentwood that they paid $18,250,000 for in 2009. Apatow also still owns a 4,356 square foot Beverly Hills Post Office-area home that he purchased in 2005 for $1,656,000.

        The kitchen has stainless appliances with an open bar and eating area and a fireplace in the living room. The home’s floors are primarily reclaimed wood from a Virginia barn and bluestone slate.
