Well-Kept Kid at the Hancock Park French Manor, Tour Village Green Garden Apartments

HANCOCK PARK: Our pal Woody of Houses of Hancock Park reports back from the weekend open house at the French manor belonging to director Mark Waters (The House of Yes, Mean Girls), and the listing of course is keeping a few secrets: "The staged photos show the bones really well. It's a huge estate. I don't think they really captured how spoiled the daughter is. She has a bedroom (the pink room) AND a playroom (the purple room), each with its own bathroom. The girl's bedroom has this weirdly staged table and two seats that look they're from some talk show set. The Joan Rivers show part deux. She also has a doll house outside which any maid would be perfectly happy to move into. The guest room has a bidet which should have been in the listing. And there's a landline next to the shower which is the most convenient inconvenience ever. It was a pretty busy day--the house was always full." [Curbed Inbox]
