Former Errol Flynn House Above Sunset Strip Lists for $6 Million

A fully restored and lavishly updated 1920s residence, cleaved to a steep slope at the base of the renowned Bird Streets ’hood just above the Sunset Strip and reworked in the 1950s by illustrious Hollywood Regency-style architect John Elgin Woolf, has come up for sale at $5.95 million. Once home to silverscreen stud Errol Flynn, it was subsequently long-owned by late and spectacularly camp comedian Paul Lynde. In early 2008, the property was acquired for $2.95 million by architecture-appreciating musician Moby and fashion designer Stacey Bendet, now married to Hollywood scion and film producer Eric Eisner. After a nearly three-year real estate slog, Moby and Bendet finally unloaded the approximately 2,400-square-foot house at a small loss in April 2014 to its current and, as far as we know, not-famous owner for $2.85 million.

Newly refurbished with a vigorous dose of classic Hollywood glamour, the house features high ceilings, silver-leafed wood floors, an original marble fireplace in the living room, an antique chandelier or two and numerous French doors that open to Juliet balconies. In addition to a shimmering, all silver and stainless steel kitchen with side-by-side La Cornue ranges that retail for almost $7,000, the multistory house has three bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The master suite sprawls across the entire second floor, and is replete with separate sitting room and two bathrooms, one with steam shower, the other with a stainless-steel bathtub. Set well below the house, a trapezoidal dark-bottomed swimming pool is set in to a used-brick terrace next to one of Woolf’s signature domed-roof cabanas.
