I ported this post over from Glendale and Beyond. I wrote it in 2013 when I still might have harbored a bit of a crush on Hollywood’s leading man. This home has sold again in 2017, so I decided to post the most current photos (courtesy George Ruyverol).
We don’t usually live the Celebrity Home lifestyle at Glendale and Beyond and, to be fair, the celebrity in question decamped many years ago. I am still a tad giddy. So shoot me.
The current owners have renovated it to their taste and it is a now very different house – and it is quite opulent.
La Canada Flintridge, CA 91011
