Offering a panoramic view of Los Angeles, the Studio City home of the late Oscar-and-Grammy-winning lyricist, Hal David, has hit the market for $2.249 million.
While you might not know him by name, you’ll certainly be familiar with his music, as the lyricist was also composer Burt Bacharach’s long-time writing partner. The duo was perhaps best known for their work with singer Dionne Warwick, which included “Walk on By,” “I Say a Little Prayer” and “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again.”
During their time dominating the Billboard charts, they also penned “What’s New, Pussycat?” for Tom Jones, “Close to You” for The Carpenters, “Wishin’ and Hopin’” for Dusty Springfield and the Oscar-winning song “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head,” by B.J. Thomas from the film “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.”
The Brooklyn-born David passed away in 2012 at age 91 and his children are now selling his four-bedroom home in Los Angeles’ Studio City neighborhood, which he bought in 1989 as a secondary residence, according to the listing agent, Mary Hellmund of The Agency.
The 9,988-square-foot, mid-century property on Avenida Del Sol is decorated with wood, glass and stone finishes throughout and is reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture, according to the listing. The home also has a deck, hot tub and patio area with barbecue, from which the view can be enjoyed.
It has been on the market for a couple of months and according to Zillow, the price was cut by $250,000 in October to $2.249 million. David originally paid $725,000 for the home nearly 30 years ago.
Oscar-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio, last week sold his 3,407-square-foot home in Studio City for $2.237 million. This was below the original asking price of $2.395 million.
