A Once Duquette-Decorated L.A. Home Returns for $19M

New, 1 comment

The former L.A. home of actress Agnes Moorehead, who played Endora on Bewitched, has been relisted after a short hiatus from its $18.99M ask, and Curbed LA notes that it once bore the mark of late great artist and designer Tony Duquette. According to Just Call Me Aggie, a blog dedicated to the late actress, Moorehead enlisted the celebrated maximalist to help her decorate the place, but the interior of the gated Spanish-style estate has since been altered from the way Moorehead had it when she passed in the mid-'70s. The antique doors have been stripped of their black paint, the wood, which she had painted white, has been restored to its natural color, and the black-and-white marble floor of the rumpus room has been covered with carpet. The "outrageous chandeliers" that Morehead and Duquette had installed in the living room have been replaced with period-style chandeliers reminiscent of the '20s, when the home was built, and the bedroom no longer sports the "shades of lavender" and "pink taffeta drapes" Duquette outfitted them with. This shouldn't come as too much of a surprise; though Duquette still reigns as one of the godfathers of glam, the cacophonies of color he favored have since fallen out of fashion, and don't quite fall in line with the "Old Hollywood" look the listing boasts. Tour the 11,703-square-foot estate below, and head this way for vintage shots from its glammier days.
