About Phllip Roth
I live in Bulgaria where I have a movie studio where I produce films for Sony, Universal, Fox, Lifetime Channel and many other channels and companies around the world. If you look up my name in www.IMDB.com under Phillip J. Roth you can see the list of over the 100 movies I have produced, directed and written to date. My passion is skiing and I still compete on an international level in Eastern Europe where I am the only American racing and representing the United States in Eastern zero percent. Some of these ski races have taken me to Serbia, Turkey, Bosnia, Greece, Romania and I was even invited to compete in Iran but was prevented to attend because the Iranians wouldn't give me a visa, but my team did go and had a very interesting time skiing some very challenging mountains. My other passion Is wake-boarding in which I do mainly on a local lake called Iskra near Sofia, a local cable park or in the Greek isles. I am married to Ekaterina Roth, a former model and is a 3x winner of Mrs. Bulgaria, representing Bulgaria in various international contests in Orlando, Palm Springs and The Domican Republic. We have 2 girls 8 and 3 and I have a son and daughter 16 and 25. All were raised and went to high school here in Bulgaria. We rarely get back to the states so I hope you enjoy the house. We have a lot of great memories.
Phllip Roth purchased this house in 1994
Why Phllip Roth chose Studio City
The Denny House is great in that it is very open and airy. I have rarely turned on the air conditioning in all my years. There is a very cosy and family feel to the house. It is in a great location especially if you have kids because of the dead end street which makes it very safe. All my kids love riding their bikes and playing front the house. The place is great if your on vacation in LA. It is walking distance to Universal and easy access via nearby freeways to Santa Monica, Hollywood, 6 Flags and Disneyland. My real love is the loft bedroom, I find it very relaxing and there is nothing better than laying back with a fire and reading a book on the chase lounge.
What makes this house unique
The hot tub and pool are what I consider a great benefit to the house. They are small but they are hidden in the back of the house in a very unique jungle setting that makes you feel you are somewhere else.
