A house in the Sunset Strip area that actress Carole Lombard lived in during the 1930s has come on the market, for sale at $1,595,000 or for one-year lease at $6,500 a month.
The French Regency-style home is set behind gates. It has an art studio, a music-media room, four bedrooms and three bathrooms in nearly 3,000 square feet of living space with original fixtures. A spiral staircase off the master suite leads to a loft. The separate guesthouse includes a kitchenette.
Lombard, who died in 1942 at 33, was married to leading men William Powell and Clark Gable. She starred in "My Man Godfrey" (1936) and "To Be or Not to Be" (1942) and is listed among the American Film Institute's top screen legends.
The property last changed hands in 1994 for $420,000, according to public records.
