Restored Piece of Hollywood's Golden Age Wants $3.295M

New, 4 comments

An English country-style home in L.A. built in 1927 by Oscar-winning silent film actor and director Charles Dorian has had its price chopped from $3.75M to $3.295M, reports the Wall Street Journal. Listed by producer and Chapman University film professor Alexandra Rose back in June, the five-bedroom on a cul-de-sac above the Chateau Marmont was bought by Rose and her husband Robert Meadows 25 years ago for roughly $1M. Since then, they've worked to restore the place to what it looked like in its Hollywood heyday—from back when it was "a big party house" according to Rose, frequented by the likes of John Wayne and Greta Garbo—replacing the windows, wall sconces, and fireplace, among other period details. Check the rest out, this way.
