James Franco’s Former West Hollywood Home Hits the Market
The $6.25 million property is across the street from the famed Chateau Marmont
Actor James Franco’s erstwhile West Hollywood home, located across the street from the famed Chateau Marmont hotel, has hit the market for $6.25 million.
The Academy Award nominee lived in the four-bedroom residence from 2006 to 2010, during which time he starred in hits like Pineapple Express, Milk, and Eat, Pray, Love. Dating to 1923, the Mediterranean Revival villa has been graciously expanded over the years to its present 5,200-square-foot size and now features a chef’s kitchen with a La Cornue range and a marble-clad master bath equipped with a 19th-century soaking tub.
The outdoor spaces are equally inviting, with a tranquil pool court that features a built-in barbecue plus a rooftop terrace that boasts a sauna. Elsewhere on the property is a diminutive guesthouse. But perhaps the most unique aspect of the estate is the entrance to a secret tunnel that ran to the Player’s Club, an extravagant lounge that Howard Hughes frequented in the 1940s and ’50s.
The home is listed with Mauricio Umansky, Farrah Aldjufrie, and Eduardo Umansky of The Agency.
