Former Groucho Marx home is sold
Update: A Beverly Hills house designed by architect Wallace Neff in 1956 for comedic actor Groucho Marx has sold for $8.8 million.
The rebuilt and updated Trousdale Estates home, which maintains its Neff footprint, is approached through a motor court with a central fountain. The one-story contemporary has walls of wood and glass and floors of terrazzo and walnut. There are five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a library and a maid's suite in slightly more than 6,000 square feet.
A pool, a spa and a waterfall complement an alfresco dining area, patios and a fire pit that extend the living space outdoors. The gated three-quarter acre lot has downtown L.A. and canyon views.
