A Bel-Air house that actress and singer
once called home has come on the market at $5.5 million.
The 1938 two-story house, with dormer windows and white columns set against a red-brick clad veranda, was designed by Wallace Neff for Garland and her mother, who lived there until the early 1940s, according to the Movieland Directory.
On more than 2.5 acres, the 5,500-square-foot house has five bedrooms and 61/2 bathrooms. A swimming pool, cabanas and a writer's cottage sit in the backyard.
The Oscar-winning Garland, who died at 47 in 1966, is most widely associated with her role as Dorothy in
(1939). She also starred in such musical hits as "Meet Me in St. Louis" (1944) and "Easter Parade" (1948).
The property last changed hands in 1975 for $335,000, public records show.
Hugh Evans of Partners Trust, Brentwood, and Cory Weiss of Partners Trust, Beverly Hills, are the listing agents.
