Carole King's Tapestry-Era French Normandy in the Hills

New, 23 comments

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.
