The French Norman Revival that once belonged to songstress Carole King and later actress Courteney Cox has been listed for $1.549M. It was here where King lived when the album Tapestry was released—the iconic cover was shot in the living room. (The singer eventually retreated to a remote Idaho ranch, which is also on the market for the reduced ask of $11.9M.)
Anyway, this turreted Hollywood Hills house, built in 1926, has 3,800 square feet, five bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and, outside, a heated pool with cabana. Cox lived here before Friends and, of course, before her eventual SoCal real estate spree. Fittingly, the brokerbabble describes the place as "once the retreat of old Hollywood now sought out by young Hollywood."
