Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos and his wife, Nicole Avant, have found a buyer for their Tudor-style home in Beverly Hills.
Mr. Sarandos, 52, heads Netflix’s activity in Hollywood and made the company an original content powerhouse with hits like “Orange is the New Black” and “Hemlock Grove.” His five-bedroom mansion asking $8.85 million is no “house of cards” —it managed to attract a buyer a month after hitting the market at the end of May, according to listing records.
Mr. Sarandos, who’s been at Netflix since its early years in 2000, declined to comment for this article.
The 6,138-square-foot, two-story house was built in 1923 in a French Country Tudor style, including a steep gable roof, painted wainscoting and several fireplaces.
The interiors are contemporary, with can recess lighting and a modern kitchen outfitted with marble countertops and the very popular white subway tile backsplash, according to the listing with Jonah Wilson of Hilton & Hyland. Mr. Wilson did not immediately return a request for comment.
French doors lead from the sitting room to a back terrace with a pergola facing the lawn and pool, all encased in a soaring privacy hedge. The master bedroom has its own fireplace and balcony overlooking the secluded backyard. In total, the property has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms.

Mr. Sarandos and Ms. Avant, a former U.S. Ambassador to the Bahamas, bought the property for $5.41 million in 2010 from Tunisian fashion mogul Max Azria, according to property records.
Mr. Azria, the chief executive officer of the BCBG Max Azria Group, owned the home for 17 years before selling it to the Netflix honcho, records show.
