Hot Property: Nina Blanchard's former residence sells for $1.1 million

The Studio City home of the late model agent Nina Blanchard has sold for $1.1 million.

Listed in March at $1,395,000, the single-story contemporary house was custom built in 1955 and has three bedrooms, four bathrooms and about 2,600 square feet of living space. The site, more than half an acre, includes a swimming pool with spa.

Blanchard, who died in February at 81, founded a Hollywood modeling agency in the early '60s bearing her name. Its roster came to include Cheryl Tiegs, Christie Brinkley, Shari Belafonte and other top models.

She purchased the house in 1995 for $650,000, according to public records.

Verna Cornelius of Keller Williams Realty's Sunset Boulevard office had the listing. Steven Durbahn of Coldwell Banker, Sunset Boulevard, represented the buyer.
