Celebrity artist Steve Kaufman has placed his four-bedroom, 3,579-square-foot house in Los Angeles' Los Feliz neighborhood on the market for $1,597,000.

 

In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on Kaufman's listing of his house, which hit the market on June 19. Kaufman is Andy Warhol's last surviving assistant.

Built in 1989, Kaufman's house sits on the top of a promontory at the end of a cul-de-sac. Features in the house include four baths, a bonus room on a separate floor, soaring ceilings, a large cook's kitchen, walk-in closet, and parking for eight cars, according to listing information. Outdoor features on the 0.40-acre (17,590-square-foot) property include downtown skyline views and plans for a pool, according to public records and listing information.

Kaufman (pictured on the left; on the right is artist Howie Green) purchased the house in 2004 for $1,630,000, according to public records.

We have absolutely no idea why Kaufman is listing the house, nor where he is off to. If it sells -- and if so, for what amount -- we'll provide that information here. Stay tuned.
