A tipster passes along the listing for this 1914 Dutch Colonial home a few blocks east of Bronson Canyon. According to the listing, this three-bedroom, two-bath home was "recently and beautifully restored." The house features four Japanese magnolia trees in the front yard, a large, grassy back yard, covered porch and a formal living and dining room. The current owners are film director Jake Kasdan and his wife, singer/songwriter Inara George. Interestingly, the listing agent, Bryony Atkinson, is also Inara's former musical partner in their short-lived band, Merrick. Way to keep it in the family, ladies. Kasdan and George bought the house in 2001 for $475,000 from "Gilmore Girls" actress Melissa McCarthy, who recently had another traditional home in Los Feliz on the market. Kasdan and George are hoping to make a hefty profit. Today's asking price: $1.495 million or $652 per square foot.
