The onetime home of silent film star and early "it girl" Clara Bow has come on the market in Bel-Air at $6,995,000.
Built in 1928, the Spanish-style house includes a ballroom, a rooftop deck and enclosed sleeping porches. The 8,900-square-foot main house has six bedrooms and 71/2 bathrooms.
A newly built guesthouse with a bedroom and bathroom sits above the three-car garage. At nearly three-quarters of an acre, the lot has a swimming pool and a motor court.
Bow, who died in 1965 at 60, epitomized the Roaring Twenties as a flapper and sex symbol. Among her nearly five dozen film appearances: starring roles in the 1927 talkies "Wings" and "It," earning the nickname "The It Girl" and popularizing the expression.
The property last sold in 1991 for $2,475,000, according to public records.
