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.

9941 McBroom Street Featured in CurbedLA

The living room is a gem

1930s Storybook with Tudor touches in Shadow Hills seeks $700K

9941 McBroom Street | Shadow Hills 91040

Tucked away in the San Fernando Valley’s Shadow Hills neighborhood, this Storybook-style house with Tudor touches sits on a lot measuring over a half acre.

The house was built with two bedrooms and bathrooms, but was later expanded to its current five-bedroom, three-bathroom layout.

Though some parts of the house are probably in need of some aesthetic updates, there are some timeless features here too. The sunken living room features a vaulted, beamed ceiling, period windows, a fireplace, and, under the stained glass window, a bay window seat.

The house holds a dining room, family room and kitchen, which still contains some retro-looking but “well-maintained knotty pine cabinetry,” like in a cabin in the woods.

Next to the house, there’s large flat area, “once the corral for horses,” a nod to the property’s equestrian past. Farther into the property, there’s also a paved patio and a kidney-shaped pool.

The property is listed for $699,900.

This sweet Craftsman in Sierra Madre is just lovely. The house, built in 1921, is clad in redwood exterior siding and has an oversized front door. And, inside, there is a lot more glorious wood: white oak floors, wainscoting of mahogany, fir and redwood. French doors and casement windows abound.

The house’s three bedrooms are spacious and bright, and the bathrooms all feature vintage-looking tilework.

Saltillo tiles cover the floor of the dining room, which over looks the spacious rear yard. The house sits on a nearly 11,000-square-foot lot that includes a spa and views of the San Gabriel Mountains nearby.

The house in the foothills last sold in 1979 for $97,500. It’s now listed for $1.499 million.

Stately country-style home in La Cañada Flintridge built in 1923 for the family of Standish L. Mitchell, a former CEO of the Automobile Club of Southern California.

As it happens, Sumner Hunt and Silas Burns designed the 5,492 square-foot home. They also designed the club’s recognizable headquarters in University Park—as well as the Southwest Museum. (Hunt also designed the original plans for the Bradbury Building.)

If the home looks familiar, perhaps you’ve seen it in one of its many film appearances. Additionally, the residence has played prominent roles in the original In-Laws with Peter Falk and Alan Arkin, The Good German, and The House Bunny. (Interiors subbed in for the Playboy Mansion).

Listed by: Brett Furrey & Esther Tan CalBRE# 01154312 & 00802807


But the home has plenty to offer beyond pedigree and IMDB credits.

Furthermore, Containing six bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths, the expansive interior features original hardwood floors, fireplaces, crown moldings, and even a few era-appropriate bathroom fixtures.

 


Listing agent Brett Furrey tells Curbed the owners meticulously preserved the home’s original character, bringing in FK Design Group’s Marla Felber and Virginia Robinson Garden’s Tim Lindsay to assist with the updates. As a result the grounds are absolutely gorgeous.

 


Especially relevant is the extremely beautiful space around the house.

Located on 2.4 acres, the gated home is accessed by a long, winding driveway and surrounded by a forested, park-like yard. The back yard includes several patios and balconies for admiring the scenery. Additionally, an elegant swimming pool adds to Old World restrained luxury.
