Singer-songwriter and former actress Linda Thompson is ready to part with her condo in West Hollywood, listing the unit at the Empire West building for sale at just shy of $2 million.

The turn-key condo has formal living and dining rooms, a family room, two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms in nearly 2,300 square feet of open-plan space. Countertops and breakfast bars surround an oversized chef’s kitchen complete with custom cabinetry, a center island and a wine chiller.

Appointments include hardwood floors, modern fixtures and recessed lighting. A walk-in closet and an upgraded bathroom with a soaking tub highlight the master suite.


Two walk-out balconies take in views of the cityscape. Two covered parking spots are included with the unit.

A rooftop pool, valet parking and a private gym are among the community amenities.

Thompson bought the property eight years ago from television director John Bowab for $1.5 million, records show. Late textile and fashion pioneer Bertrand Forma, who founded Los Angeles-based Studio Bert Forma in the 1960s, was another former owner.

Kelly Sutherland of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage holds the listing.


The 66-year-old Thompson gained fame as a regular on the television series “Hee Haw” and also had parts on such shows as “CHiPs” and “Beverly Hills, 90210.” She appeared alongside former husband David Foster on the 2005 reality television series “Sons of Malibu,” which followed her sons Brandon and Brody Jenner.

As a songwriter, she collaborated on Josh Groban’s “To Where You Are” and the Celine Dion hit “Miracle.” She worked with Foster on the songs “No Explanation” for the film “Pretty Woman” and “I Have Nothing” for “The Bodyguard,” both of which received Oscar nominations for best song.
