A Lloyd Wright Home in Long Beach Hits the Market, Bobby Darin’s Former Home Sells for $10.5 Million, and More Real Estate News

A record-breaking $65.8 million sale at The Plaza

As The Real Deal reports, a new record has been set for the most expensive condo in The Plaza. Both buyer and seller are anonymous in the $65.8 million deal for Unit 1109 that closed in late October. Previously, the 12,000-square-foot condo last sold in 2008 for $45.9 million. The 2023 sale breaks the record set by real estate developer Harry Macklowe and his ex-wife Linda Macklowe in 2007 for selling seven contiguous apartments in The Plaza for $60 million.

Combined with The Plaza’s unbeatable price, the sale is among the most expensive deals to close in New York in 2023, according to The Real Deal. It’s currently the fourth-largest sale, behind units at Central Park South in Vornado valued at $80 million and $75 million and the sale of the penthouse at 1165 Madison Avenue this spring for $67.9 million. Neither the buyers nor the sellers of Unit 1109 have been identified.

A house in Beverly Hills with a musical past is being purchased for $10.5 million

According to Mansion Global, “Splish Splash” singer Bobby Darin’s former Beverly Hills home has sold for $10.5 million. Darin lived at the property on North Rodeo Drive between 1967 and 1969. At this point, the house was turned over to Noel Blanc, who once portrayed Elmer Fudd and Porky Pig from Looney Tunes (in the roles once voiced by his father, Mel Blanc). ).

Darin may be the most important musician to ever own this Beverly Hills home, but his musical connections are much broader – and more modern – than just ’50s crooner. The home’s guesthouse includes a state-of-the-art recording studio, and according to Mansion Global, the space has been used by a number of musicians, including Red Hot Chili Peppers, Black Sabbath, Carlos Santana and Whitesnake. The home’s immediate surroundings also feature plenty of Old Hollywood references: Gene Kelly’s home of 50 years is just a block away and Lana Turner’s much-visited home – the site where Johnny Stompanato was stabbed to death in 1958 – is four blocks away.

The 1922 building and guest house are 6,900 square meters and have been carefully renovated to modern standards. Although the sprawling recording studio rightly takes up much of the attention, the home’s backyard is an asset in itself. Designed to frame a waterfall pool, the space provides a secluded retreat for homeowners and visitors alike. The listing was done by Michael Rabbani of Rodeo Realty.
