If you caught the recent music documentary Strange Powers, you may sort of recognize this flamingo-hued residence as the home of the Magnetic Fields's main magnate, the delightfully cranky Stephin Merritt (it looks like they used different exteriors, but the interiors seem to match). Located on Las Palmas between Sunset and Fountain, the 1907 Craftsman features, per the listing, three bedrooms, one and a half baths, refinished hardwood and concrete slab floors, a formal dining room with original built-in cabinets, pocket doors, a fireplace, a gated yard with eucalyptus, orange, and lemon trees, and a one-car garage. Asking price for the 1,504 square foot house, last sold in 2008 for $587,000, is $649,000.
