In Baldwin Hills, the longtime home of the late film director John Singleton is up for grabs for the first time in 30 years, hitting the market for $1.8 million.
Singleton — who directed hits such as “Baby Boy” and “2 Fast 2 Furious” — has been the home’s only owner since it was built in 1989. Records show he bought it for $700,000 in 1990, a year before the release of his debut film, “Boyz n the Hood,” which is set in nearby Crenshaw.
The house sits on a third of an acre on a hillside cul-de-sac overlooking Los Angeles. A turf backyard, as well as a private balcony attached to the owner’s suite, take advantage of the scenic setting.
Inside, four bedrooms and four bathrooms are spread across 4,900 square
