TV producer Larry Lyttle is looking to move on from his Pacific Palisades home. After 20-plus years of ownership, Lyttle has listed the property for $11.8 million.
The craftsman-inflected house fits its setting very well. The shake-sided residence is set on a lush lot accented with large mature trees. Wood-heavy interiors and lots of glass give the home an unusually defined identity.
The 5,600-square-foot home dates to 1956, but reached its current size after a second story addition, overseen by architect Warren Wolf Wagner, was completed. Its present layout features six bedrooms and seven bathrooms, and open-concept living spaces.
The central living space is a sprawling living room with a wood-clad, vaulted beamed ceiling. A dedicated dining room that also features vaulted ceilings, and the massive kitchen stands out with dark cabinetry, high-end appliances, and a breakfast space.
The home’s master suite is its heart. A large space, it features a large sitting room, two walk-in closets, and his-and-hers bathrooms. The property is landscaped semi-wild, with a patio, a built-in barbecue, and a swimming pool and spa in a well-proportioned plan.
Lyttle—who made a name for himself as a producer of shows like “Judge Joe Brown” and “Judge Judy”—founded Big Ticket Television in the early 1990’s.
