Her Kansas home in "The Wizard of Oz" flew through the air. Now a Bel-Air house that was home to a young Judy Garland has flipped, selling for the second time since last year for $6,772,669.
The Wallace Neff-designed house sold in 2011 for $5.2 million and was then updated and renovated.
The two-story traditional, built in 1938, sits on about 2.5 acres. The 5,513-square-foot house features dormer and bay windows, white columns, French doors, five bedrooms and 61/2 bathrooms. Outdoor amenities include a swimming pool and a detached studio.
Garland, who played Dorothy in the 1939 classic, died in 1969 at 47. The actress and singer 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).
Hugh Evans of Partners Trust in Brentwood handled both sides of the transaction.
