A Studio City prefab home by Chilean-American architectural designer Rocio Romero sold for an asking price of $2.295 million.

The buyers are Alex Schwartz and Joe Khajadourian, the successful music producing duo known as The Futuristics. Their credits include working with Flo Rida, Bruno Mars and Blink-182 and contributing to the musical production of “The Fast and the Furious” film franchise.

Located on a heavily wooded hillside across from Rudolph Schindler’s sculptural Roxy Roth Residence, the three-story, 3,289-square-foot home features five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and an open kitchen, living room, and dining room.

Floor-to-ceiling windows give a modern treehouse vibe.

The upper level deck is wired for a hot tub and overlooks the back yard.

There is a large cinder block and concrete storage space under the house.

Michael Tunick of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties and Paula Reavlin of Keller Williams Encino Sherman Oaks held the listing. Neyshia Go of Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer.

Romero is a prefab pioneer. Its LV Series kit homes combine affordability, efficiency and modern aesthetics. As one of his first prefabs in California, this listing was recently featured in Dwell.

The house was built by C. Chase Harwood and his wife, Joyce Kim Lee. Harwood decorated sets for TV shows like “The Big Bang Theory” before turning to science fiction novels. His latest is “Battle for Saturn”, the third book in “The Saturn” series. Lee is an Emmy-winning costume designer best known for dressing the cast of Nickelodeon’s “The Fresh Beat Band.”
