Location: Los Angeles, California
Price: $2,795,000
This 4,800-square-foot "entertainer's delight" used to be the gatehouse of the Beverly Hills estate of Tom Mix, one of the most popular movie cowboys of the silent era. Offered in 2013 for $3,985,000, it's back on the market for $2,795,000, because an "international beauty queen" with an offer on it decided to pull out of escrow, according to Hilton & Hyland agent Mia Cottet.

After MIx, the four-bedroom "French Country property" was owned by 1940s actress Nina Foch, who had an acting studio built upstairs that's now a "massive media room." Other noteworthy features include a "light filled glass enclosed breakfast/sitting room," a "show stopping gourmet kitchen" with an "exposed vaulted wood-beam ceiling," and "3 sets of French doors that frame the manicured gardens."
