Home of Fanny Brice on the Market


The Holmsby Hills area of Los Angeles is no stranger to high-end real estate. A nearly entirely renovated house from 1938, originally owned by actress Fanny Brice, is now listed with asking price of $65 million, according to Curbed Los Angeles.

The estate is now owned by Richard King, producer of such shows as "Hannah Montana" and "Blossom." The property has benefited from significant home repair and maintenance projects undertaken by the producer after he and his wife took ownership in 2001 to the tune of $15 million, according to the Real Estalker.

The eight-bedroom, 11-bathroom estate has enough amenities to make any silver screen starlet comfortable. There is a guest house on site, and the pool is flanked by a dual purpose structure that serves as both a pool house and home gym, according to Curbed. Sports fans may also enjoy the home's full tennis court.

Brice was the home's very first owner, according to the Real Estalker. The Zeigfeld Follies star sent the moving company to the estate after her split from music man Billy Rose. While there are no reports of how much Brice shelled out for the pad back in 1938, it is probably safe to say it was considerably less than the current $65 million price tag being reported by Curbed.
