Anyone know what the equivalent of "Central Casting" for houses might be? 'Cause whatever that is, if someone called there looking for the quintessential 1920s Hollywood French Norman Revival-style house, we'd know where to point 'em. Built in 1926, this classic specimen sited on a 10,400 square foot lot on Appian Way features five bedrooms, four and a half baths, a formal dining room, library, office, two fireplaces, hardwood, tile, and stone floors, and a heated swimming pool with cabana. Oh, and it's also got a pretty sweet curving credenza/desk set in its turret. And is there a little rock and roll history to throw in the mix too? Yep: this is where Carole King was living when Tapestry was released and it sounds like the album cover was shot in this living room, according to a 2009 interview in the Telegraph. Courteney Cox also owned the house pre-Friends. Last sold in 1991 for $1.04 million, the 3,832 square foot residence is now listed at $1.549 million.
