I've often told friends that part of what makes me love real estate is the Los Angeles real estate market.  There's nothing else like it.  You never know what kind of house you're going to see, who's house you're going see, or what you're going to find in a house once you're there. 

Just yesterday on caravan, we saw a listing in a fairly non-descript house, but the owner obviously had led sooooome kinda life, because there were framed photograph's of him with everyone who has been anyone during the past 30 years.  He and Liz Taylor, he and Al Pacino, he and Matt Damon, he and Cher, and many dozens more.  The walls were covered with them, many of them autographed to him.  I love going into homes and just being able to feel old Hollywood.  So yesterday the hot new listing on everyone's agenda was that of actor Billy Dee Williams, of Star Wars fame. 

The property is located in tony Trousdale Estates, which is where, outside of Palm Springs, you can find the biggest concentration of utterly breathtaking mid-century modern homes.  The property is 6 bedrooms and 6 baths in about 5,300 square feet.  To put it kindly, the house would  certainly be considered a fixer, with a lot of sort of sub-par additions seemingly added over the 25 years or so he's owned it, but the location, and the bones of the house were fantastic.   It will take a buyer with an eye and some money to put into it, but it definitely had potential.

Ben Stiller's Outpost Estates compound was also open yesterday, unfortunately I didn't make it over there.  Maybe next time...
