I know it’s a couple of days past Christmas, but I couldn’t resist sharing this Brentwood home with celebrity and holiday credentials.
Michael Barasch of Rodeo’s Encino office is listing a home that was once owned and designed by iconic crooner and actor Bing Crosby. As most of you know, Bing Crosby was well known for singing holiday favorites such as “White Christmas.”
The mini estate is set on almost 10,000 square feet of landscaped park like grounds. Built in 1937, it has almost 2,500 square feet of living space, 3 nice bedrooms, formal living room, separate family room, formal dining and a gourmet kitchen.
Additional features include hardwood floors, 2 fireplaces, crown molding, recessed lighting, sky lights, French doors, sparkling pool, outdoor kitchen, separate baths for each bedroom and a warm and inviting floor plan. The master suite features vaulted open beamed ceilings, a large walk-in closet and a master bath with steamer shower, separate tub, tumbled marble and much more.
The house was featured in a Christmas day Los Angeles Times story about other Bing Crosby homes on the market in L.A.: http://www.latimes.com/features/home/la-hm-hotprop-bing-crosby-20101225,0,316269.story
