Shock rock legend Alice Cooper has a duplex for sale in Echo Park at $1.299 million. No, this isn’t an investment property he happens to own — it’s a space he has used as a writer’s retreat when in town creating music for himself and the Hollywood Vampires.
The two-unit house was built in 1927 and maintains its Spanish-style roots with arched windows and passages. The 2,027 square feet of interiors, however, look fresh and new with updated kitchens, bathrooms and light walls. The singer-songwriter-actor completely renovated the duplex when he bought it in 2006 for $700,000.

Pam Franklin participated in the 27th Annual “America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride – Lake Tahoe,” a charity cycling event for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society (LLS). The awe-inspiring ride was a 100-mile ring around Lake Tahoe, through California and Nevada, with spectacular scenery, clean mountain air, great food and more.
Pam trained several months for this event with an organization called Team in Training, a national fundraising arm of LLS. With her hard work and dedicated efforts, she was able to raise $5,130, nearly twice her stated goal. And, as a group, Team in Training raised over $4,000,000!
These donations will help fund treatments that save lives every day. These include immunotherapy, which uses a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. We are extremely proud of Pam for her tireless efforts in support of this life-saving work.
“Thanks to all the wonderful, generous Podley agents and staff who supported my effort!” – Pam
