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.
Bears, deer, a lone kangaroo. Fairhaven in La Cañada Flintridge kept an exotic menagerie in residence when it was the home of Academy Award-winning actor Victor McLaglen and his wife, horsewoman Enid Lamont McLaglen. Visit LATimes.com to read the complete feature on 1219 Journeys End!

Part of a tract of World War II-era homes built as worker housing
Modernism Week events are ongoing in Palm Springs and plenty of pedigreed homes are up for grabs in the desert city. Case in point: this cozy post and beam by influential modern architect Albert Frey.
The simple residence was constructed in 1946 as part of a tract of homes commissioned as worker housing and designed by Frey at the tail end of World War II. The houses all feature identical floor plans, but different positions on each lot and unique paint jobs so as not to appear too uniform.
This house has plenty of modern style, with wide windows, tiled bathrooms, and plenty of indoor-outdoor access. The 1,150-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, along with an airy kitchen with a vintage stove and refrigerator.
The house sits on a 10,000-square-foot lot, with a large driveway, attached garage, grassy backyard, and spa/swimming pool. There’s even an outdoor shower—partially enclosed for privacy.
Asking price is $749,000. Worth noting: The home’s historic credentials qualify its owner for some tax breaks under California’s Mills Act.

Mark your calendars, folks! The weekend after Labor Day may not be the official start of fall — the first day of fall is September 22 — but it may as well be. Which means, it’s time for another September Sweep!
Schools are back in session, neighborhood pools are closed and white pants are officially off limits. It’s also the ideal time to clean up all the grime summer left behind, as well as prep for the cooler temperatures to come.
Trust us: Gutters are way easier to clean when they’re not clogged to start with. Oh, and frozen pipes are actually preventable if you winterize your sprinklers before the cold sets in.
Enjoy the ultimate guide to getting your home ready for fall, courtesy of Patch and HomeAdvisor. Here’s what to do and who to hire now so you can start enjoying fall ASAP. Happy September Sweep!
Winterize Sprinklers: Any water left in the sprinkler system or pipes could freeze, crack and ruin the system. This inexpensive task can save more than $1000 in total replacement.
Gutter Cleaning: The leaves likely haven’t fallen yet but get ready. Gutters that are full of leaves can hold water and pull down your entire gutter system, and sometimes parts of your roof.
Weatherstripping: This little task can pay for itself with the savings you’ll see on on your energy bill. Filling the gaps around doors and windows will ensure you’re warming your home, not your neighborhood.
Window Caulking/Inspection: Caulking around the windows also helps keep heat from escaping. While you’re at it, have someone inspect the integrity of your windows. If they are more than 25 years old, it’s likely time for new ones.
Roof Inspection: This is your first line of defense against the weather. A quick roof inspection by a professional can tell you if you have any weak spots that could cause serious damage during the bad weather.
Carpet Cleaning: Sand. Need we say more? Get rid of the grit and grime that summer left behind with a professional carpet cleaning before fall.
One-Time Deep Clean: Sanitizing kitchen areas, bathrooms and everything in between after a long, hot summer is crucial to starting fall so fresh and so clean.
Furnace Tuneup: Naturally, you need to change your furnace filter if you haven’t since last winter, but also hire a furnace repairman to make sure your unit is tip-top. A quick tune up can identify problems before they start, and also help optimize your system for the brutal months ahead.
Odds & Ends:Of course if you have special items like a pool, water feature, or hedges to protect from the cold weather, now is the time. If you beat the rush, you can always find a contractor who has the time. However, if you wait until the busy season to contact a pro, you might be waiting for a while.
