A Hollywood Hills home once owned by actress and singer Judy Garland and her second husband, stage and film director Vincente Minnelli, is on the market for $6.129 million. Garland, Minnelli and their daughter, Liza Minnelli, lived in the Art Deco-style house during the mid-1940s, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Garland and her family weren’t the only stars to live in the home, either. Comedian Wally Cox owned the home and sold it to Rat Pack entertainer Sammy Davis Jr. Canadian-American Rock group The Band also lived and recorded music on the property.
Designed and built in 1941 by John Elgin Woolf, the property reflects his signature Hollywood Regency style, with renovations from the famous former tenants. Behind the library, a hidden door leads to the original master bedroom called the “Judy Garland suite.” It has a walk-in closet and a dressing room with Garland’s original mirrors.
Davis also left his mark on the property, making changes to the outdoor space. According to the Los Angeles Times, he added a swimming pool, a 1,100-square-foot pool house with two bathrooms, and professionally landscaped gardens with a fruit orchard. A modern fire pit—ideal for outdoor entertaining—has been recently added.
Located just above Sunset Strip, the three-story home boasts five bedrooms and seven-and-a-half bathrooms. There’s also a home office, a screening room, and remodeled kitchen. Overlooking the hills, the property’s balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows offer gorgeous views of Los Angeles.
