What do The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, & Marilyn Manson Have in Common?

Built for silent screen actress Mary Astor in 1925, this Old Hollywood Classic is steeped in Hollywood history and has played host to many musical acts including The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, and Marilyn Manson. Now up for sale, the nearly 100 year old home is in need of a full restoration but underneath it all one can picture a home as beautiful and timeless as ever.

2404 San Marco Drive
Los Angeles, CA 90068
Asking Price: $1,995,000

Bedrooms: 5
Bathrooms: 5.5
Square Feet: 2,076
Lot Size: .27 acres
Year Built: 1925

The three-story home encompasses three separate lots and contains a main house, guest house, a swimming pool, and a  stream-fed koi pond.

Arguably unassuming from the San Marco entrance, the property goes from street-to-street down to 2405 Holly Drive and boasts a gated parking area below.

Built for The Maltese Falcon star and Academy Award winning actress Mary Astor when she was just 19 years old, the sprawling walled and gated estate has many stories to tell and many more to come.

Inside, you will find many lovely original features, including a spiral staircase, ornate plaster and wrought iron work, French doors and windows, stained glass, and a turret.

Yes, the kitchen needs a complete overhaul, but it couldn’t be placed in a better position, allowing for great hillside views.

A grand living room and a romantic spiral stair case complete the main floor.

Each level of the three levels boasts private decks.

While the 5.5 bathrooms could also use some work, you will find a few with an endearing appeal.

A 2-story guest house with a wall of windows overlooks a fern grotto and the koi pond. Sure to be a favorite enclave for out of town visitors or artistic collaborators.

The crystal blue pool is magical and the property’s many meandering trails and lush private grounds offer plenty of spots to explore and inspire.

Marshall Chess is among the property’s previous owners. He co-founded the Rolling Stones’ record label in the early ’70s. The Stones recorded several of their hits here over the next two decades and were frequent overnight guests, often allegedly drawing the members of Fleetwood Mac over for daytime pool parties or late night songwriting sessions. Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham lived just down the street throughout the ’70s at 2282 El Contento Drive.

While the property is being sold “as-is,” the possibilities for the creation of a thriving luxury compound for the ages are endless.
