The home’s Hollywood history dates back to 1930s when it was built for the actor Fredric March, star of “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." Designed by the architect Wallace Neff, a major exponent of the California style, the “meticulously upgraded” space has “kept all the architectural integrity of a bygone era,” according to the listing details.
“It’s been extensively renovated on the inside, although the outside looks like it did in 1934,” says listing agent Susan Smith with Hilton & Hyland. Smith notes the price is set in the right range, citing the recent sale of Adam Levine’s $45 million Beverly Hills flip.
