Historic Pasadena Tudor Featured in ‘La La Land’ Lists for $8.5M
In Pasadena, California, a Tudor with a decades-spanning career in film and television is on the market. The veritable movie star at 880 La Loma Road has credits that include everything from 2016’s Academy Award-winning La La Land to the beloved, 1988 movie Beaches. And after less than two weeks on the market, the illustrious estate asking $8.495 million already has at least one offer and is currently accepting backup offers. So, time is of the essence if you wish to nab this piece of Hollywood history.
Situated on approximately two acres of verdant green grounds, the circa-1916 property counts within its parameters a main house reminiscent of England as well as a studio and a separate garage. Altogether, these structures span 7,479 square feet of interior space with a total of 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. Despite their respective independence—ensuring maximum privacy between spaces—each structure threads a consistent atmosphere of elegant yet whimsical glamour.
The main home embraces an array of colorful wallpapers and tiles, from the glorious foyer to the lavish living room to the kitchen. But it’s the exteriors that will catch the movie buff’s eyes: Ryan Gosling attends his sister’s engagement party at the property’s poolside. The home has also made guest appearances on episodes of Columbo, Parks and Recreation, and Mad Men.
Room for more history to absorb? The estate was also once home to late Anheuser-Busch heiress Carlota Busch Webster. With no shortage of stories in its walls, the residence is listed with Sally Forster Jones and Joshua Smith of Compass.
