Judy Garland's Home

Double-checking the BigTimeListings blog reveals more historic home action:
"An estate in the Lower Sunset Plaza area of Los Angeles’ Hollywood Hills that once was owned by actress Judy Garland and her director husband Vincente Minnelli and that later was owned by actor Sammy Davis Jr. now is on the market"

The home sold for under $2.8 million, a bit below the $3.3 asked in July, and a lot under the $5 mil asked two years ago (the seller paid $.5 for it in 1995). But Judy Garland moved into it in September of 1944! Liza Minelli (b. 1946) learned to walk here! (It is referred to as pink stucco in a bio of Garland, clearly that's been changed.)

Built in 1941, the five-bedroom, 4,999-square-foot house at 8850 Evanview Drive has seven bedrooms, according to public records. However, listing information shows that it only has five bedrooms. Other features . . . 7-1/2 baths, public rooms with city views, maple floors, French doors, a large family room, a formal dining room, a library and a media room. Outside are a guest house, a pool, gardens and patios.
