Frank Sinatra’s L.A. Home Back on the Market at $12.5M, Up From $7.5M

A Los Angeles-area residence Frank Sinatra once called home is back on the market for $12.5 million.

Located on seven acres atop a hill in Chatsworth, the musical icon rented the luxurious estate called Farralone for about a decade, leaving it behind in the 1960s.

During the crooner’s tenure, the place was ground central for epic parties whose guest lists included prominent figures from entertainment and politics. But its first owner, a bank heiress, was no slouch either; she hosted many a Hollywood blowout for A-listers of the 1940’s and 1950’s. The residence’s celebrity pedigree continued on as it was used as a filming location for TV shows like “Mad Men” and the movie “Dreamgirls.”

As a private residence, it’s quite idyllic; the Midcentury Modern-style house was designed by architect William Pereira and built in 1949. Inside, period styling carries the day with soaring ceilings, all-white walls, floor-to-ceiling windows, and expansive open-concept living spaces.

As expected, the 8,200-square-foot seven-bedroom home comports itself well as an entertaining space, with formal living and dining rooms, a den with a wet bar, and a modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances all contributing to Epicurean excesses. Guests will be comfortable sleeping it off in the separate guest house/pool cabana.

The property exterior features a suite of patios, rectangular swimming pool, spa, and 360-degree city and mountain views. Below, an aerial shot shows the estate lording over the suburban boxes that have crept in in the years since Sinatra held court here, and gives credence to the estate’s name…’Farralone’ is a corruption of ‘far alone’.
