An ultra-private home with celebrity pedigree has recently been listed for sale in the hillside community of Franklin Hills, in Los Angeles.
The Sanborn Avenue residence was previously home to musician Graham Nash, best known for his light tenor voice and for his contributions as a member of the Hollies and Crosby, Stills & Nash.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer called the Franklin Hills residence home at the height of his fame and the property was even referenced in Nash’s 2013 autobiography, Wild Tales: A Rock & Roll Life, where the musician shared stories about his fellow bandmate Stephen Stills and how he would randomly drop by the house to share entire lamb dinners with Nash’s family.
And while some time has passed since the house’s former famous resident moved out, the 1923-built property has all the potential to attract new star power — especially given how private it is.
Perfectly sited atop a lushly landscaped hillside that looks out to city and mountain views, this beautifully reimagined Franklin Hills home is on the market with a $1,595,000 asking price. Katie Crain and John Podhor with Compass hold the listing.
Nestled within the vibrant communities of Los Feliz and Silver Lake, the 1,647-square-foot home has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths.
Upon entering the property, you’ll discover well-designed, light-filled living spaces that showcase meticulous attention to detail.
The spacious foyer leads to the primary bedroom, which includes two walk-in closets and an en-suite bathroom with Carrara marble countertops, a double vanity, a Kohler soaking tub, and a separate shower. A laundry room is conveniently located nearby.
Ascending an oak staircase, we find a chef’s dream kitchen featuring a large island with Caesarstone countertops, custom walnut millwork and shelving, Thermador appliances, and Velux skylights.
The adjacent dining room has original wood windows and sliding doors that open to a charming outdoor patio with native plantings and a cedar hot tub.
The guest bedroom boasts a designer bathroom with Carrara countertops and a custom walnut vanity, along with access to another outdoor patio. The sunlit living room on the upper level offers panoramic views through large windows and French doors leading to a deck.
Additional features of the property include white oak floors and ample storage space.
While the size and location of the hillside lot doesn’t offer much room for outdoor amenities, the Crosby, Stills & Nash musician’s former home is quite creative when it comes to outdoor spaces — and has plenty of extra charming patios and seating areas to take in the splendid views.
And they’ve all been set up for residents and their guests to enjoy morning coffees, weekend brunches, and dinner parties while looking out to expansive views that span from the Griffith Observatory and Hollywood sign to Century City and beyond.
Located in close proximity to the shops and restaurants of both Los Feliz and Silver Lake, this home epitomizes the California lifestyle. And its ties to former Crosby, Stills & Nash band member Graham Nash definitely add to its appeal.
