Thought this info might be of interest to board members as well as to Tim.
While checking out the newly purchased home of a relative on the internet,
I typed out the addresses of two of Susan's former homes:the first being
the one where she lived with Jess and the boys-3737 Longridge Ave,Sherman Oaks,California and than her last address-1460 Laurel Way in Beverly Hills.
Both houses are for sale! There is a slide show on the Longridge house and
mention of the fact that Susan lived there; apparently,this is the first time
in over 50 years that it has been up for sale and it appears that there has
been very little renovation-ie the bathrooms. The Laurel Way house is shown
in video and mentions that it underwent renovation in 2006. I hope Trish is
able to access this because that was when she visited LA and saw the house
as it was. It's beautiful and the view is breath taking. There is also mention that it was celebrity owned. Now if I could only convince my husband
to retire on the West Coast....of course,after we robbed a very big bank!!!!
Interesting news indeed Elaine. Thanks for that. I imagine it would very much be of note for Tim and Trish, for varying reasons as you say.
Let me know if your venture into bank heists is successful and I can try one here. Although for me to retire on West Coast, U.S.A. from East Coast Australia, I may need a bigger bank to hit- lol.
Thank you for the information Elaine. I would love to see the video but don't know how to access it.
I had my picture taken outside the Longridge Avenue home back in 1960 and wish I had had the guts to ring the bell although Susan had long left there and was living in Carrollton then. I would have tried the bell now - getting older has its compensations but back in the early days I was more reticent.
Thanks for posting this info, Elaine. I enjoyed seeing the photos of both houses. As it happens, I just finished reading the book "Red," and it helped me to visualize these sites as noted in the book.
Frankly, I was unaware how easy it is to access info on various properties online. While I was at it I checked out three houses (which are not for sale) belonging to my relatives. I think they would be surprised at the photos and info that are available about their properties online.
I have just viewed the pictures of the Longridge Avenue house and also the video on Youtube of the one in Laurel Way. It was so interesting to see them and unbelievable to see the restoration in Laurel Way as when I was there, I was standing in a load of rubble!!
I would imagine Tim and Greg would be interested to see these and what a coincidence they are For Sale at the same time.
Interesting...Mom and Dad bought this house for $ 37,500.00...back in the day...
OMG It's gorgeous! It looks like you and Greg had lots and lots of room to play.
There are something like 25 to 30 photos at the link you gave here,Tim.
I love it.
I had not realized that there was another house on Longridge. I really love this one shown online.
I can understand why she would want to make a change.
