Dinner at Eight Star's 1920s Spanish Revival in Whitley Heights Asking $1.2 Million

New, 14 comments

The listing for this 1926 Spanish "atop a highly desirable mound in historic Whitley Heights" informs us that it was once the home of character actress Marie Dressler. Whaddyamean, who's Marie Dressler? While her name may not be too widely recognized today, during the early 1930s, Dressler was one of Tinseltown's biggest stars, appearing in such hit films as Anna Christie, Dinner at Eight, and Min and Bill, for which she won an Oscar. Instrumental in the formation of Actor's Equity, Dressler also became the first woman to grace the cover of Time magazine. Per the description, Dressler's former residence features three bedrooms, three baths, hardwood floors, domed ceilings, scalloped entryways, wrought iron work, vintage tile, two built-in vanities, eight Juliet balconies, French windows and doors, and a two-car garage. Sited on a 7,900-square-foot lot, it's asking $1.2 million.
