John Goldwyn and Jeff Klein Officially List Pedigreed Pad Above Sunset Strip

SELLERS: John Goldwyn and Jeff Klein
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $6,395,000
SIZE: 2,760 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Just as we told y’all last week they were fixin’ to do, producer and Hollywood scion John Goldwyn, grandson of Samuel Goldwyn, and high-end hotelier Jeff Klein, owner of the Sunset Tower Hotel among other celeb-favored properties, have indeed hoisted their photogenic John Elgin Woolf-designed cottage just above L.A.’s Sunset Strip up for sale on the open market with an official asking price of $6.395 million. The couple acquired the property in late 2005 for $2.815 million, per property records, had it polished up by savvy L.A.-based designer Madeline Stuart, and photographed for the February 2014 issue of Architectural Digest. Built in the early 1950s as one of three Hollywood Regency style guest cottages on the former compound of Oscar-winning film director George Cukor, the carefully restored and discreetly updated residence has 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in 2,760 square feet, per current listing materials.

John Elgin Woolf, lauded as the founding father of the characteristically theatrical Hollywood Regency design and decorative trend that swept over Los Angeles in the 1950s and 1960s, designed houses for a long list of Hollywood heavyweight who include John Wayne, David O. Selznick, Barbara Hutton, Cary Grant, and Paul Lynde. Spencer Tracey and Katherine Hepburn reportedly lived for a time in the Woolf-designed cottage next door to the Goldwyn-Kleins, also once part of Cukor’s compound, and Mister Cukor’s former manse is now owned, per property records, by interior decorator and restaurateur Lynn Von Kersting, owner of the quintessential Hollywood power lunch spot The Ivy.
