A Bel-Air house that was home to a young Judy Garland, in the days of her star turn as Dorothy in the 1939 classic "The Wizard of Oz," is back on the market at $7.1 million, roughly a year after its previous sale.
Updated and renovated, the two-story traditional sits on about 2.5 acres. Designed by Wallace Neff and built in 1938, the house features dormer and bay windows, white columns, a red-brick clad veranda and French doors. The 5,500-plus-square-foot house has five bedrooms, five full bathrooms and two half-baths.
A swimming pool, cabanas and an original detached writers' studio are in the backyard. There is a two-car garage and multiple carports.
The actress and singer died in 1969 at 47. She received an honorary Oscar in 1940 for her performances in "Oz" and "Babes in Arms" and was later nominated for her work in "A Star Is Born" (1955) and "Judgment at Nuremberg" (1961).
Public records show the property sold last year for $5.2 million.
Hugh Evans of Partners Trust in Brentwood is the listing agent.
