Previously -- Via Curbed LA: This $5.5 million mansion in the Holmby Hills of Bel-Air is a real estate double-whammy. Not only was it designed by Wallace Neff, "the architect of California's Golden Age," but it has a celebrity-filled pedigree of past owners. Curbed LA reports that the Bel-Air home was commissioned by American darling Judy Garland in 1938 at the tender age of 16, "the year she was cast as Dorothy Gale in The Wizard of Oz." Other celeb homeowners include music industry heavyweights Quincy Jones and Marvin Gaye. The home has five bedrooms, six-and-a-half bathrooms, and sits on over two-and-a-half acres of land. Besides a pool and cabanas, the official listing also notes an "original writers' cabin."
Curbed LA points us to Bluetramontana Style, which has photos of Judy Garland posing in her Wallace Neff home. The Judy Garland Database also chronicles all the homes Garland has ever lived in, from her childhood home in Grand Rapids, Minnesota to her flat on Cadogan Lane in London, where she passed away at the age of 47.
