San Marino home of late SpongeBob creator Stephen Hillenburg seeks $4 million

By Sandra Barrera

The San Marino midcentury-modern home of the late “SpongeBob SquarePants” creator Stephen Hillenburg is on the market for $4 million.

Designed by Case Study architectural firm Buff, Straub and Hensman in 1959 and later remodeled, the 3,795-square-foot post and beam known as the Thompson-Moseley House has four bedrooms and bathrooms, a walk-in bar hideaway and vast expanses of glass.

Floor-to-ceiling glass walls, clerestory windows and skylights flood the interior with light. Despite all of the glass, the house sits on a slight knoll on a half-plus-acre lot secluded from the neighbors by mature trees.

A lap pool and a detached guesthouse and art studio fit the backyard.
