Former Home Of Judy Garland And Sammy Davis Jr Goes Green
The newly restored former Judy Garland / Sammy Davis Jr. Estate is up for sale and sporting some nice eco-friendly features. The 5,000 square foot home — found just off of Sunset Plaza — was originally built by Garland and her husband Vincent Minnelli back in 1944. History buffs will also note that a young Liza Minnelli learned to walk here.
Later on, the home served as a gathering spot for the legendary “Rat Pack” after Sammy Davis Jr. purchased the property. He also added a pool cabana/guest house. Fast forward to 2008, and the home has undergone an extensive renovation thanks to the green-focused Gillian Caine of Coldwell Banker Beverly Hills South and the design firm of Davis Design and Development. “I helped Rob’s people add as many eco-friendly features as possible,” Caine said. “They did a fantastic job all around. Someone is going to get a real trophy property here.
New green features added include a solar-heated pool, water reclamation, energy-efficient lighting, low-impact construction, drought-resistant and water-efficient landscaping.
