BACK ON THE MARKET BRING OFFERS ASAP. Just fell out of escrow at near asking price since buyers could not perform.

It is truly a part of Hollywood history with former residents including David Bowie, Mickey Rourke, Nora Ephron, Rachel Zoe, Brendan Fraser, Rashida Jones, Ashley Hamilton and so many more. There are only a handful of similar historical buildings in the area, including Colonial House and Country Club Manor, and they sell for a much higher price per sq ft.
