The Mediterranean-style property, which Marshall had owned since the early 1980s, was the site of star-studded parties, including joint birthday bashes with her friend, the late Carrie Fisher, according to the Wall Street Journal. Marshall, who directed “A League of Their Own,” died in December 2018. She was 75.
“You get the most exceptional views of the city and the ocean,” says listing agent Jonathan Nash. “It really is the jewel of the Outpost Estates,” an exclusive Hollywood Hills neighborhood of about 400 homes.
Built in 1953, the 9,500-square-foot, eight-bedroom home on 2 acres could use some updates. However, the new buyer might consider preserving some of the star’s quirky decor choices. We love the original, diner-style kitchen with watermelon-design flooring and a built-in banquette. Another highlight is the baseball-themed wallpaper in one of the lower-level bedrooms added by Marshall, who was a sports fanatic.
With floor-to-ceiling windows, the living and dining rooms are light and bright, and open to terraces.
A screening room with adjacent kitchenette as well as three bedrooms, including the master, sit on the home’s top level.
The lower level features a ballroom and kitchenette/wet bar. Sliding doors open the space to the backyard, which features a pool, palm trees, fruit trees, and grassy areas.
Other features of the lower level include a darkroom, safe room, and two more bedrooms.
The property includes two guest suites and bath house with a separate entrance.
Marshall was famous for playing Laverne DeFazio on the ’70s TV sitcom “Laverne and Shirley.” She moved on to directing, including “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “Big,” and the Oscar-nominated “Awakenings.”
Jonathan Nash and Stephen Resnick, both with Hilton & Hyland, hold the listing.
