When Sue Mengers's house first went up for sale earlier this month, the listing came with a measly two photos. Mengers was legendary for being one of the first big female agents and for throwing star-studded salon-style dinner parties attended by every boldfaced name in the book. She held those parties in this John Elgin Woolf-designed house in Beverly Hills, which she bought around the time of her retirement in the late eighties. The listing is now all photo-ed up, showing the fabulous pool, a pink circular dressing room/bathroom, and the main entertaining room, where, Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter described, "Sue would sit at one end of the seating area, two large facing sofas flanking her and a chair at the other end. She held court, to be sure." Mengers died just about a month ago. The house is still asking $4.995 million and offers are still due by December 7.
