New To Market: Architectural Digest Bigwig's Former Home

New, 10 comments

The listing for this five bedroom, four-and-a-half bath home claims it was once owned by Architectural Digest publisher Cleon Knapp & his wife Betty. So we expected to be wowed. Instead, we're kind of bored. As it happens, Cleon and Betty haven't owned the house for quite some time. It's currently owned by the proprietors of tanning salon Pacific Sun, in Sherman Oaks. The listing tells us the house features a "gourmet cook's kitchen, a family/media room, a solar heated pool, and city to ocean views." There's also a guest house, patio, and "33,000 sq feet of total privacy." Perhaps for some nude sunbathing if you happen to eschew the tanning salon? Last sale price was in July 1998 for $1.1 million. Today's asking price: $5.4 million.
