The Trousdale Estates residence has 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms over 4, 667 square feet. It also has a swimming pool.
The single story home was built in the 1960s and Variety described it as “bedraggled” which means that it must be a “fixer upper.”
The listing talks it up as being an “unprecedented opportunity” with “unlimited potential and outstanding possibilities.”
This probably explains the relatively low price. If you look at the other listings in that are, $4.25 million id actually kind of cheap.
Caesar bought the home in the 1980s and the picture look like he never renovated it since then. The kitchen looks old, to say the least, and the carpets and walls are out of style.
From the listing by Marie Louis Properties:
“Reminiscent of an era passed, this wonderful mid-century Trousdale estate presents an unprecedented opportunity to bring this formerly celebrity owned, character rich home into modern day. The long-time estate of iconic comedian, actor/writer, Sid Caesar, this 4bd+4.5ba home has the kind of incredible potential that is seldom seen! A large motor court makes way for a perfectly secluded lot, situated to take advantage of tranquil canyon views.
“The fantastic floor plan is highlighted by high ceilings & flr to ceiling glass doors that look out to the patio, pool, & views. The huge great room flows to the formal dining area & the kitchen which overlooks the family room. There are 3 bdrm suites, incl. the master, loc. in a pvt, wing to clearly separate pvt. & public spaces. The master boasts a dual sided bath & is flooded w/light from doors that open to the outdoor entertaining area.
“Storage space abounds + a separate bonus room-studio/office. A rare opportunity w/so many possibilities!”
