YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Thanks to our tipster Junebug, Your Mama has learned that Frank Sinatra's youngest daughter Tina, the one whose boots were not made for walking, recently listed her long time residence on Lloydcrest Drive in the Hills of Beverly with an asking price of $2,450,000.
If Your Mama is being honest, and we always are, we had to do a little searching on the interweb to sort out if this Miz Sinatra has accomplished anything in her life besides being the daughter of one of America's most iconic and beloved crooners. Turns out she has. Well, sort of. As best as we can tell, in the late sixties and early seventies, the good looking gal acted in a few boob-toob programs including the made for television film Fantasy Island as well as produced a couple of films including one about (surprise!) her father and in the year 2000 she authored a book about (surprise!) her father. Nothing wrong with a little nepotism folks. If Your Mama's daddy was rich, famous (and dead), we'd prolly be figuring and finessing ways to make profit off his memory too. Afterall, someone is going to do it, so it might as well be the family.
Anyhoo, as best as we glean from the property records, Miz Sinatra purchased this house way back in April of 1968. Your Mama hasn't got a clue what she paid for the place, but given that it was 40 years ago, well, you know that it was pennies on the$2,495,000 the property is currently listed.
Listing information reveals that Miz Sinatra's hillside house measures in at a modest 3,024 square feet and includes just 2 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms (as well as a separate guest apartment). Your Mama does not mind this particular ratio of bedrooms to bathrooms as we do not like to encourage too many house guests to stay too long. However, the slim number of primary sleeping chambers will likely rule out all those Brady Bunch style family buyers and all the real estate size queens who are convinced that owning a house with less than five or six bedrooms is a punishment. Other amenities include a double living room (whatever that is) with a fireplace, a dining area, a media room and a "warm and inviting" kitchen that opens up to an outdoor living and dining terrace which despite that disturbing ceramic lemon tower tree thing on the table looks like the only part of the house Your Mama could be in without feeling like we wanted to poke out our eyeballs with a pencil.
Miz Sinatra's house is located in a neighborhood that is often referred to as the Crest Streets, a swanky and hilly 'hood located between Coldwater Canyon Drive on the west and and Loma Vista Drive on the east, is chock full of rich and famous folks like wiglicious wonder Tyra Banks who owns a home on Readcrest Drive, Microsoft billionaire Paul Allen has a gigantic estate on Beverlycrest where his next door neighbor is Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis and just around the corner from Miz Sinatra one Waynecrest Drive is the 14,595 square foot mansion of shockingly rich Ron Popeil, the Ginsu knife guru and inventor of all manner of seemingly useless items such as the GLH-9 hair in a can product, the Cap Snaffler, and the Inside the Shell Egg Scrambler.
Although the listing for Miz Sinatra's house is still marked "active" in the MLS, jaw-flapping Junebug swears all up and down that the property is in currently escrow and that Miz Sinatra will soon be packing up all her truckloads of tchotchkes and schlepping it less than a mile away as the crow flies to a newly built house on Wallace Ridge Drive where she'll be close enough to send her house gurl down the street to Courtney Cox and David Arquette's house to borrow a cup of sugar.
