An Art Deco home in the Hills, owned by Rodney Dangerfield's widow, has been put on the market
The property definitely deserves to be treated with some respect! A few months after Rodney Dangerfield, one of the greatest comedians of all time, passed away after complications following a heart surgery in 2004, his widow, Joan, decided to sell the couple's two Los Angeles marital homes.
A few years after this, she decided to make a move that would turn her career around; she acquired a striking residence in the desirable Bird Streets neighborhood in Hollywood Hills; that snazzy mansion has now just hit the market, asking just under $18 million.
Approximately 18 years ago, Joan Dangerfield purchased the 2004-built premises for a price of $6,3 million as part of her estate.
Rich Report describes this house as an art deco contemporary home with four bedrooms and six bathrooms, and it was designed by John Andrews Group Architects, and it is described as a rare art deco contemporary home. Featuring floor-to-ceiling walls of glass that provide sweeping views of the ocean and city lights, the house measures approximately 5,400 square feet.
Nestled amidst verdant foliage, this two-story white estate sits on a coveted front-row corner parcel of over a quarter-acre in the Bird Streets. A gated driveway leads to a generous motorcourt flanked by a three-car garage and a striking, art-deco inspired entryway.
The glass front door opens to a double-height foyer topped by a circular skylight and a sweeping wrought-iron staircase leading to the main living area. This impressive residence offers the perfect balance of privacy and elegance in one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in town.
