"Que Sera, Sera" Writer's Beckett Back in Bev Hills Post Office

New, 12 comments

Que sera, sera, indeed for this house on Angelo Drive, which is in its third act on the market in as many years. The four bedroom was built in 1952 and designed by William Sutherland Beckett for lyricist Ray Evans, who co-wrote Doris Day's signature song. We first saw it in 2008 (the year after Evans died), with a decent set of listing photos and asking $9.995 million. It sold in December that year for $6.15 million, according to Redfin. But it popped back up again in January 2011, listed as a teardown designed by "Welton Becket" and with plans for the site designed by X-Ten Architects. Asking price was $12.5 million. It was pulled off the market in April and just relisted with one actual photo of the house. A separate website (warning: extremely annoying music) has a few more exteriors. The listing itself plays up the view and says "Every investor and developer should see this property in person." Asking price is a rather strange $9.711 million.
