Beyond managing the impressive feat of riveting Americans with reenactments of a trial already viewed by 51 million people, FX's American Crime Story: The People v. OJ Simpson may have helped out in the sale of a house that figured prominently in the saga leading up to that trial: the former Encino house of Simpson friend and reality star progenitor Robert Kardashian.
The Kardashians' former home, where Simpson hid from the media in the days leading up to his 1994 arrest and on the morning of his infamous Bronco chase, sold March 23 for the respectable—if a little underwhelming—price of $1.3 million. The five-bedroom house had been on the market for quite some time, asking $1.85 million back in September of 2014.
It was from the long gated driveway of this house that Simpson began his long day as a fugitive from the LAPD, and it was in the bedroom here of a young Kim Kardashian that the former NFL star apparently threatened suicide.
Not all of the locations made famous by the OJ case are still around (Simpson's old home was demolished in 1998), but the Kardashian residence, built in 1957, was in good enough shape to play itself on the FX series. Still, the listing for the recently sold home did advise buyers to "bring your contractor."
