A Hollywood movie producer who has worked with the likes of Robert De Niro and Brad Pitt sold one of two Los Angeles pricey properties he had listed.

Anton Lessine, acting through Dastel Holdings LLC, unloaded his French Mediterranean-style home for $16.8 million, property records show. That nearly doubled the $9 million price the home last traded for in 2012, records show.

The buyers were Ashley and Andrew Lebowitz, who purchased the estate through a family trust.

Lessine has been connected with films that include “Fury,” “Dirty Grandpa” and “Sabotage.” He is the son of Mikhail Lesin, the late Russian media pioneer and political figure who had links to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The Bristol Avenue property, which sits on a 27,000-square-foot lot, includes a 13,000-square-foot main house. It has seven bedrooms and 13 bathrooms. The estate also includes a media room, wine cellar, fitness center and wood-paneled library. Outside is a pool with a cabana.

Santiago Arana of the Agency represented both sides. He did not immediately return requests for comment.

Lessine is also listing another 13,000-square-foot property in Beverly Park, another guard-gated celebrity enclave. That residence, which sits on a 2-acre plot and boasts expansive views, remains on the market, for $27.5 million.
