Longtime Beverly Hills home of composer John Cacavas lists for $8.325 million

The Beverly Hills home where late television composer and conductor John Cacavas lived for more than 40 years has come on the market for $8.325 million.

Cacavas isn’t the only Hollywood name to call the slow-slung Midcentury home. Actor and engineer Zeppo Marx, the youngest of the five Marx Brothers, once shared the 1950s residence with second-wife Barbara Sinatra.

The flat-roofed house, sited on a desirable corner lot of more than half an acre, is entered through a front courtyard with a fountain. Inside, a relatively untouched layout features open living spaces and a walls of glass that open to backyard setting with a 60-foot swimming pool.

A living room with royal blue carpeting, a formal dining room, a den/office, a craft room, six bedrooms and seven bathrooms lie within the 5,069 square feet of living space. A home theater has wall partitions that slide to reveal a vintage wet bar.


Lawns, gardens and a detached two-car garage fill the fenced and hedged grounds.

Cacavas bought the house in the early 1970s, records show.

Josh Flagg of Rodeo Realty holds the listing.

Cacavas, who died two years ago at 83, was a prolific composer who scored such series as “Kojak,” “Hawaii Five-0” and “The Bionic Woman.” He won a Grammy for his work on the spoken-word recording of “Gallant Men.”
