Per the Listing: "The vintage Mediterranean exudes the quintessential charm old Hollywood is world famous for. Enjoy the serenity of the hills while living close to the "Night Life of Hollywood". The beautifully updated kitchen and baths add a modern touch while preserving the integrity of the architecture. The third bedroom offers its own entrance and works well as a guest or maid's quarters. Lovely patios provide a private escape for a cozy barbeque and cocktail conversation. The loft/family room/office has views of the city below."
It's sort of a harmless looking house -- nothing garish, no wow factor, but sexy curb appeal, which does mean a lot. According to the Close-Ups and Long-Shots blog, focusing on silent screen-era film stars, the 1925 built home was once occupied by movie actress Marion McDonald, who "exceeded at playing vamps and flappers," and her husband Stephen Quinerly, a business man who owned theaters in Miami.
