Tucked in Los Angeles’ coveted Bird Streets, late Oscar-winning film director John Schlesinger’s charming estate is asking $12,770,000, according to press materials.
The estate was also where the infamous, never-released documentary of the Rolling Stones’ American Tour 1972 was filmed. It was never released because the band, who hired photographer, Robert Frank, to shoot it, decided, when it was finished, that they didn’t want their rock star antics on view for the public.
Cindy Crawford and Richard Gere also owned the four-bedroom, five-bathroom residence, built in 1959, in the early ‘80s.
Schlesinger, known for film classics, such as Midnight Cowboy and Sunday Bloody Sunday, bought the home, with 4,529 interior square feet, for its rare mix of John Wolf-inspired architecture, as well as for its unmatched scale, privacy, views, and proximity to the Sunset Strip.
The listing at 1896 Rising Glen is held by Christopher Dyson of The Agency.
