    Default Up for sale: Home that Carey Grant shared with his boyfriend!

    A freshly minted Cary Grant was at home here
    Not long after he arrived in Hollywood, the movie star moved into this house with actor Randolph Scott.
    By Ruth Ryon, Times Staff Writer
    April 30, 2006


    After signing a five-year contract with Paramount in 1932, English actor Archie Leach became Cary Grant.

    That year, the 28-year-old, destined to become one of the most celebrated movie stars of Hollywood's golden age, met actor Randolph Scott on the set of Paramount's "Hot Saturday," and the two moved into a house near Griffith Park.

    The Spanish Colonial Revival walled estate in the Oaks area of Los Feliz is still referred to as Grant's former home, and it is a subject of the book "Dream Palaces of Hollywood's Golden Age," by David Wallace.

    In 1934, Grant married actress Virginia Cherrill, who played the blind flower girl in Charlie Chaplin's "City Lights." Grant carried his bride over the threshold of this house, the Wallace book says. The couple divorced in 1935. Grant, who remarried four times, died in 1986.

    About this house: It was built in 1929 for David W. Pontius, president of the Pacific Electric Co., whose Red Cars traversed the L.A. Basin. The home, purchased in 1994 by film production designer Charles Breen and his wife, Monique, underwent a seven-year restoration.

    Asking price: $3,995,000

    Size: There are four bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms in 6,727 square feet. The rooms are on a grand scale.

    Features: There are views from downtown to the ocean, original stained glass, ornate molding, authentic period tiles, a small grassy yard and a guest apartment.

    Where: It's on a site high in the Oaks of Los Feliz.

    Listing agents: Brett Lawyer, (310) 888-3808, and Jonah Wilson, (310) 888-3870, both of Sotheby's International Realty, Sunset.

    WoW the stories that beautiful pool could tell....

    I don't think most people realize Cary Grant was bisexual.

    I didn't know that, but it now makes me guess that his current impersonator must have similar preferences as well

    Cary Grant was dreamy. He stayed dreamy for years and years. He was also so funny which can be sexy. The last movie he made that he was still hot in was "To catch a thief" with Audrey Hepburn. I loved all his movies. A really fun one with him and Myrna Loy was "Mr. Blandings builds his dream house" So cute and fun. Oh well, they don't make like him anymore. The closest we have is George Clooney. He is a poor man's Cary Grant.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.
