According to its listing, this Spanish Colonial on the corner of South Cloverdale and West Eighth Street in the Miracle Mile used to belong to Big Band jazz singers Bob and Ray Eberle (Bob was a vocalist with the Jimmy Dorsey band, while Ray crooned tunes such as "Moonlight Serenade" with the Glenn Miller Orchestra). Built in 1933, the two-story residence seems potentially quite lovely, but unfortunately is poorly served by the amateur photos in its gallery, one of which even includes a cat licking its butt, fercryinoutloud. At any rate, the 3,080-square-foot house features three bedrooms, three baths, hardwood floors, a wrought iron staircase, elaborately painted period tile, vintage cabinetry, wainscoting, built-ins, French doors and windows, a working elevator, two wood-burning fireplaces, balcony decks, a courtyard patio, covered porches, and a guesthouse. Sited on a 5,230-square-foot lot, it's listed for the first time in 42 years at an asking price of $1.795 million.
