What do you immediately think of when you hear the name “Janet Leigh?” “Psycho”, of course! You envision her in the shower and you imagine that shadowy Victorian horror of a home on top of the mountain overlooking the Bates Motel. Right? Most of us do! Produced by Alfred Hitchcock, it was a well-scripted, well-cast, horror film, with scenes which would terrify even the most enthusiastic horror lover… the Victorian house in the movie was probably the funniest movie house of all time.
Leigh was one of the best-known movie and television actresses for decades and has been named Hollywood’s ‘Best Glamor Girl’ in 1948. She had been married to Tony Curtis for 11 years and is now the mother of Jamie Lee Curtis. Leigh lived in this Beverly Hills home from the 1970s until her death in 2004.
Now Janet Leigh’s own former residence is available and far from being a terror. Styled in Contemporary Transitional, the design is classic both inside and out. The ideal home for an avid art collector, the floors are ebony and the walls white, offering exceptional display options. The design is perfect for entertaining since the public rooms spill out to the patios and stunning views over Hollywood and out over the Pacific. At just over half an acre, the 4,432sf home includes 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, pool and tennis courts. This house will give your mind a new vision when hearing the name “Janet Leigh” and all thoughts of horror will be long forgotten!
