Film director Joel Schumacher has put his longtime retreat in Carpinteria back on the market at $7.25 million.
Set on 5.5 acres, the compound includes a three-bedroom main house, a guesthouse and a two-bedroom caretaker’s house. Built in 2000, the structures have a rustic feel and feature reclaimed barn wood. The main house includes a Diego Rivera-inspired mural entry. There are 5.5 bathrooms and 6,500 square feet of living space.
Schumacher, 73, gained recognition for his work on “St. Elmo’s Fire” (1985), “Batman Forever” (1995) and “The Phantom of the Opera” (2004). He directed two recent episodes of the drama series “House of Cards.”
Myra Nourmand of Nourmand & Associates in Beverly Hills is the listing agent.
