Although the practice of giving advice probably dates back to the cave man, Toni Grant surely must be credited for refining the art.
Psychologist Grant rode the radio airwaves in the 1970s and 1980s, issuing her pearls of wisdom to a nationally syndicated audience. She also authored several books.
And now she is trying to sell her West Hollywood pied-à-terre, having just listed it for $3,495,000. The one-bedroom, two-bathroom penthouse unit has 3,455 square feet with spectacular city views from every window. There are private balconies, and the grand entry has limestone and marble inlays, high ceilings and elaborate moldings.
The open floor plan includes a wet bar and an antique carved fireplace. The kitchen defines to-die-for Viking range top, four ovens, four dishwashers, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and limestone countertops. The building comes with a rooftop pool and sun deck, a conference/party room, 24-hour security and concierge service and extra storage.
Grant's show made KABC the top-rated radio station in her time slot among Los Angeles' 70 stations and stole audiences away from TV soap operas.
