The filmmaker and financier is splashing his feet into the real estate waters once again.
Bob Yari listed his two-story Beverly Hills home on Summit Circle for $8.5 million, the Los Angeles Times reported.
It has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a maid’s room and on office, within 7,400 square feet of space. A saltwater swimming pool and deck boasting city views can be found outside.
Bob and his wife Mary purchased the Tudor-style property in 1996 for $1.44 million, property records show.
Meg Ostrow of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage and Fereshteh Kohanim of Nelson Shelton Real Estate hold the listing.
The man behind the “Agent Cody Banks” is no stranger to real estate. After an initial failed attempt in Hollywood in the 1980s, he became involved in a variety of shopping center and office deals — now held under the Triyar Companies corporation.
HIs second attempt to break into the film industry was more successful.
His independent film company, Yari Film Group, has produced blockbuster hits including “Crash” and the “The Illusionist.” He also recently directed and produced “Papa: Hemingway in Cuba” starring Adrian Sparks. [LAT] – Natalie Hoberman
