The gated Monterey Colonial, built in 1942, includes four bedrooms and 51/2 bathrooms. A honeycomb onyx fireplace creates a focal point of the living room. In the powder room, a smoky beveled mirror provides a backdrop for a sink made out of a single piece of wood. A hammered brass tub sits in the master bathroom.
A teak-slat walkway leads from the house to the swimming pool on the nearly half-acre site.
Sargent, 85, won Oscars for "Julia" (1977) and "Ordinary People" (1980). He worked on the screenplays for "Spider-Man 2" (2004), "Spider-Man 3" (2007) and this summer's "The Amazing Spider-Man."
Ziskin, who died last year at 61, produced "Pretty Woman" (1990), "As Good as It Gets" (1997) and the "Spider-Man" films.
The property came on the market in April at $11.85 million.
Elisabeth Halsted of Prudential California Realty in Brentwood was the listing agent. Noelle McCutchen of Gibson International represented the buyer.
