Location: Los Angeles, California
Price: $ 2,795,000
This 4,800-square-foot “entertainer’;s delight” used to be the gatehouse of the Beverly Hills estate of Tom Mix, one of the most popular movie cowboys of the silent era. Offered in 2013 for $ 3,985,000, it’;s back on the market for $ 2,795,000, because an “international beauty queen” with an offer on it decided to pull out of escrow, according to Hilton & Hyland agent Mia Cottet.

After MIx, the 4-bedroom “French Country property” was owned by 1940’;s actress Nina Foch, who had an acting studio built upstairs that’;s now a “massive media room.” Other noteworthy features include a “light filled glass enclosed breakfast/sitting room,” a “show stopping gourmet kitchen” with an “exposed vaulted wood-beam ceiling,” and “3 sets of French doors that frame the manicured gardens.”
