Development has star past
Apiece of Old Hollywood has given way to a top sale in Sherman Oaks.
On Longview Avenue, where the home of Oscar-winning actress Susan Hayward once stood, a newly built Traditional sold last month for $6.85 million— one of the most expensive single-family-home sales to date in the San Fernando Valley neighborhood.
The new development replaced a ranchstyle house formerly owned by Hayward and her first husband, actor Jess Barker, in the 1940s and 1950s.
The original home came on the market last year for the first time in more than half a century and sold for $2.52million. The single story structure was built in 1940 and hadf our bedrooms and four bathrooms in 2,884 square feet.
The rebuilt 8,786-square-foot house sold last month. The master suite has a two-way fireplace and a soaking tub. There are a total of seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
Oren Mordkowitz of Pinnacle Estate Properties was the listing agent. Howard Zuckerman of Berkshire Hathaway Home-Services California Properties represented the buyer.
