Chatsworth's Sinatra House Is for Sale

You've see it in 'Mad Men,' 'Dreamgirls,' 'Ali' and 'Californication.'

Curbed Los Angeles has the goods on the Frank Sinatra Fox House at 9361 Farralone Ave. in Chatsworth. Adrian Glick Kudler reports it was most recently used as a set for TV's Mad Men, and the mansion is up for sale. Price? $12 million.

"The 1951 Pereira & Luckman house has an incredibly star-studded history from its early days all the way to today. It was built for Chase Manhattan Bank heiress Dora Hutchinson, who, according to Forbes, threw "massive who’s who parties for Hollywood, hosting the A-list likes of Lucille Ball and Ava Gardner, and shooting off fireworks to signal Happy Hour to her neighbors." The listing says that Judy Garland and Vicente Minnelli were married on the property. After Hutchinson moved to New York, she rented the Fox (also known as the Farralone) to Frank Sinatra for almost a decade, who in turn sublet the guesthouse (which has its own pool) to Marilyn Monroe."

You'll find the story and a whole album of photos here.
