This 1925 Spanish Colonial in the hills of Los Feliz was built for Bessie Love, a star who was made famous by silents like The Aryan and The Good Bad Man, but continued to appear in films even after the transition to talkies. (She earned her first Oscar nomination in 1929 for Broadway Melody, one of the first movies with sound, her New York Times obituary says.) The four-bedroom residence is just over 4,000 square feet and sits on around half an acre of land. The house offers vistas of the city and the hills nearby from its verandas; spacious, multi-level backyard; and saltwater pool. Inside, there's a formidable kitchen with a Viking range and marble counters, and rounded doorways. Last sold in 2001 for $705,000 ("THIS ONE IS FOR FIXER-UPPER BUFFS ONLY," the listing warned), it's now all polished up and asking $3.499 million.
