OxyContin Heiress Madeleine Sackler Pays Money in Los Feliz
When”Havana” and”Señorita” songwriter Ali Tamposi place her renovated 1930s Mediterranean villa-style house in L.A.’s Los Feliz community up available, the 2.8 million record drawn a flock of curious parties. The house then sold in under 1 month to get a complete $235,000 over the asking cost.
The winning bidder is critically-acclaimed filmmaker Madeleine Sackler, best-known for producing and directing gripping documentaries that include”The Lottery” and”Dangerous Acts Starring the Unstable Components of Belarus,” the latter of which won the 2015 Emmy for Outstanding Arts and Cultural Programming. A skim through public records shows no signs of a mortgage Sackler’s brand new Los Feliz house, suggesting the deal was quite likely consummated all in money.
Sackler and her movies also have garnered controversy, chiefly because she’s an heiress to the fortune produced by Oxycodone, the addictive opioid medication responsible — directly or indirectly — to the deaths of 300,000+ Americans. Sackler’s grandfather Raymond Sackler established the modern-day Purdue Pharma, the legally-embattled firm that creates OxyContin and other contentious pain meds, and her family has allegedly obtained a whopping $35 billion in total earnings from the company as 1996.
Secluded at the end of a calm cul-de-sac and completely submerged, gated and surrounded by a tall hedge for privacy and safety, Sackler’s brand new mini-estate comprises a single-vehicle carport plus a tree-shaded front yard. A brief brick walkway contributes to the front entrance, which then opens into some wee foyer with gold wheat-hued hardwood flooring that last throughout the construction.
There is a double-height living area using a painted brick fireplace, a spacious kitchen with stainless steel appliances and Carrara marble countertops, and foldaway walls of doorways offering that quintessentially SoCal indoor/outdoor living. A cozy living room has direct access into the backyard pool space, along with also the downstairs maid’s quarters has its own independent entry.

The upstairs master suite includes a private balcony with distant views of the Griffith Observatory, along with the accompanying spa-style bath has a patterned tile flooring, built-in soaking tub and double vanities. You will find two additional family bedrooms upstairs, each of which share one toilet.
back, there is a flagstone terrace enclosing a dip pool, a vine-covered trellis, citrus trees and assorted succulents. A spacious guest studio sports a complete bathroom and a private entry.
Sackler’s household has been much from the house gossip columns of late; past month, her long relative gently sold a $38 million New York townhouse into billionaire Israel Englander. And two decades back, her first cousin David Sackler forked out $22.5 million to get a”fixer-upper” property in prime Bel Air which is presently undergoing some type of big overhaul.
Sebastian Wolski of Compass held the record; Ron Holliman of Coldwell Banker repped Sackler.
