Director-writer Martin Davidson and his wife, residential and restaurant designer Sandy Davidson, have put their West Hollywood Hills home on the market at $1,995,000.

The 1940 house was designed for a sculptor, and the two-story living room served as a studio. The open-plan residence, with 1,864 square feet of living space, has a sky-lit dining room, a loft/bedroom, two offices with built-in furniture, a master bedroom suite and two bathrooms. A rounded deck with a mature tree in the middle leads to a lawn and swimming pool. There are panoramic views of the city and ocean.

This is the only house that the New York couple looked at when they arrived in L.A. They bought the property in 1975 for $120,000, according to public records.

Their attraction to Art Deco and Midcentury modern inspired a remodel and renovations, including the streamline/modern built-in furniture.

Director Paul Mazursky shot the romantic comedy "Blume in Love" (1973) at the house.

Davidson, 71, co-wrote and directed "Lords of Flatbush" (1974) and "Eddie and the Cruisers" (1983).

Shirley Sherman and Lloyd Sherman of Westside Estate Agency, Malibu, are the listing agents.
