A Los Angeles-area home that once served as the seaside escape of actor Jack Lemmon appeared on the open market this year. The house is located on Broad Beach; the property comes with 38 feet of frontage on the sand, and features a scenic path through the scrub between the residence and the water. It is priced at $13.45 million.
A brick exterior and 80s modernity defines this home’s exterior, with a few French country house details and blue roof shingles added for complexity. Brick is also used for the perimeter walls that surround the property and extend toward the PCH enclosing an outdoor living area with a lagoon-stone-framed style pool, stone walkway, and gardens. A solarium looks out over this grassy front courtyard, which is echoed by a sandy back courtyard between the house and beach.
The interior living spaces are expressed in half-vaulted ceilings with exposed timber, masonry walls, inlaid oak floors, and fireplaces. Series windows and French doors illuminate the master bedroom, which opens to the second-floor terrace. A guest apartment over the garage brings the total living space to 3,293 sq. ft.
Lemmon starred in Hollywood classics such as Some Like It Hot and The Odd Couple.
