Rocker Marilyn Manson has listed his house in the Chatsworth area of Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley for $1,100,000.
The Los Angeles Times' Ruth Ryon today broke the story of Manson's listing of the 4,484-square-foot house, at 10521 Laramie Avenue in Chatsworth.
Puzzling to us -- and of course, completely unaddressed by Ryon -- is why Marilyn is selling the house for just $1,100,000, given that the rocker had purchased it in his real name, Brian Warner, in early 2004 for $1,270,000, according to public records. There's clearly a backstory there; we just don't know what it is (e.g., were Manson's changes to the house so outlandish that they actually drove the home's value down? Did Manson wildly overpay in 2004? Is the housing market today *that* bad in Chatsworth? Etc. If any readers have any ideas, let us know.).
Built in 1937, Manson's completely rebuilt, one-story house sits on a 0.55-acre lot and has an oversized living room, a separate office/library, a home theatre room, and hardwood floors, according to public records and listing information. Outside are a pool, a covered cabana and rolling lawns, according to listing information.
Ryon noted that the house once was owned by actors Barbara Stanwyck and Robert Taylor.
