“Chinatown” writer Robert Towne lists estate, $12.995 million.
Built in 1926 and designed for grand entertaining, the restored English country-style mansion and guesthouse have seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms and 10,000 square feet of living space. The nearly three-quarter-acre property is wooded and includes a swimming pool, a rose garden and a spice garden.
Towne, 77, won an Oscar for original screenplay in 1975 for the Jack Nicholson-starring film about land and water rights disputes. He wrote the screenplays for “Days of Thunder” (1990), “Mission Impossible: I” (1996) and “Mission Impossible: II” (2000).
