Actress Faye Dunaway has remodeled the historic West Hollywood duplex she lived in for 15 years and put it on the market for $1.75 million. Dunaway paid only $315,000 for the small, charming duplex at 901 N. Spaulding Ave when she bought it in 1998. She lived for many years in the larger half -- a two-bedroom, two-bath space with a small balcony off the dining room and a courtyard in the back. The home is tucked behind hedges and a wall to keep it private.
A recent open house attracted Dunaway fans who wanted to check it out, said listing agent Farrah Aldjufrie of The Agency. She holds the listing along with Eduardo Umansky. The larger unit is staged with memorabilia that is also for sale, including a photograph by Dunaway's ex-husband of her at breakfast, poolside at the Beverly Hills Hotel, with the Academy Award she won for her role in "Network" in 1977.
"She just hoped to find a buyer who would hopefully appreciate the Hollywood history and want to own a piece of her life," Aldjufrie said.
Dunaway's own vision drove the home's remodel. Antique and art deco details -- crown molding, arched windows -- are preserved. But the home has been modernized with contemporary light fixtures and a modern tile backsplash in the kitchen.
