Burt Lancaster’s Former L.A. Home on the Market for $2.4M

For a buyer in search of a home with a celebrity pedigree, a home formerly owned by the Oscar-winning actor Burt Lancaster is now available. Located below the Hollywood sign in the Beachwood Canyon neighborhood, the 1941 residence is on the market for $2,399,000 million.

Lancaster, who died in 1994 at the age of 80, had purchased the home. His daughter lived there, and the home had been in the Lancaster family.

The home has changed hands several times over the years, beginning in 1996 for $270,000, and last sold in 2017 for $1,766,665. The current listing details describe it as “designer owned.”

Recently redone, the 2,800-square-foot interior includes four bedrooms and four bathrooms. The updated interior has a spacious floor plan with glass doors that extend the living space outside.

Multiple French doors open to the patio, perfect for entertaining. The living room features a fireplace and built-ins.

The modern, open kitchen boasts a center island, subway-tile backsplash, and stainless-steel appliances. Adjacent to the kitchen is a dining area with a chandelier overhead.

Upstairs, a large master suite includes a fireplace. Two additional bedrooms open to a screened porch with hillside views. An additional guest suite downstairs could serve as an office or gym.

Outside, the fenced backyard is filled with mature trees, terraced gardens, and a plunge pool. 

The property also includes a two-car garage, pantry, and basement. The convenient location is close to the Beachwood Market and Cafe, Griffith Park trails, and the Hollywood Reservoir. Although it is surrounded by nature, the neighborhood is just minutes to the heart of Hollywood. 

In 2016, another property Lancaster used to own popped up on the market for $2.65 million, an expansive Spanish-style condo at Century Towers, the high-rise in Century City.

The 18th-floor unit combined two apartments, spanned 2,800 square feet, and featured floor-to-ceiling windows. The star purchased the place in 1976 and owned it for two decades, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Lancaster had a 45-year career in film and television. He’s known for his Oscar-winning performance in “Elmer Gantry,” as well as for his starring roles in “From Here to Eternity,” “Gunfight at the O.K. Corral,” and “Judgment at Nuremberg.”

Josh Myler and Jeff Kohl of The Agency hold the listing.

Coronavirus Halted Their Wedding Plans, So These Couples Bought Homes Instead

Some fiancés are switching gears from nuptials to home shopping, hoping to take advantage of market conditions and redirect their wedding budget. The post Coronavirus Halted Their Wedding Plans, So These Couples Bought Homes Instead appeared first on Real Estate News & Insights | realtor.com®.

Coronavirus Halted Their Wedding Plans, So These Couples Bought Homes Instead

When they realized that their dream wedding was unlikely to happen this summer, Phil Bassis and Carly Catalana decided to do something unexpected: buy a home. They knew the Covid-19 crisis had likely shifted the market toward buyers and they hoped they might recoup some of the deposits for their wedding celebration in Manhattan.

“We just said, ‘why are we holding off?’ ’’ said Mr. Bassis, who owns a fashion business. “We can probably get a deal on the apartments that we were looking at now and why don’t we take that money that was intended for the wedding and put it toward the apartment instead?”

In early May, the couple purchased a Tribeca loft for $1.51 million. It was originally listed at $2.095 million, reduced to $1.895 million. They still hope to marry on their original day and celebrate with their immediate families.

After a three-year engagement, Jeff Henry and Erica Rodriguez were set to be married on May 30 in Monroe, Conn. On March 20, Dr. Henry got a residency in emergency medicine at the University of Connecticut. The couple is currently living in Roanoke, Va., where Dr. Henry attended medical school—so they switched from wedding planning to househunting. (The wedding has been postponed.)

They reached out to Realtor Rachael Cisz of Berkshire Hathaway. She visited homes on their behalf and looped them in on FaceTime. The couple went to Connecticut to tour homes, wearing masks, gloves and shoe coverings. After looking at 16 homes a day for three days, they found the one: a three-bedroom in West Hartford. “As soon as we pulled into the driveway we just loved it,” says Dr. Henry. If they close before residency begins, they may hold a private wedding ceremony in the backyard.
