Dolly Parton Lists West Hollywood Crash Pad
LOCATION: West Hollywood, CA
SIZE: 1,091 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: The long-legged blond at Trulia Luxe Living revealed today that Dolly Parton listed her West Hollywood crash pad for $1,395,000. (The house is remarkably small but it sorta makes sense Miz Parton maintains a West Coast pied-a-terre in the heart of Boys Town, don't it?)
The compact and extensively fenced and gated bungalow in the Norma Triangle 'nabe, is said to be the childhood home of Natalie Wood and was quietly acquired by the prodigiously talented and high camp country queen April 2007 for $1.2 million.
Listing details indicate the bantam bungalow was originally built in 1923 and currently has two bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,091 square feet. There's off-street parking for several cars—a real bonus in this tightly packed 'hood—several porches, a small tiled terrace with a garden shed and a detached one-car garage turned into one of the strangest little guest cottages this property gossip has ever laid our boozy eyes. (More on that in a brief moment.)
We love us some Dolly Parton, children. We really do and, once upon a time in the not too distant past, Your Mama and the Dr. Cooter paid big bucks for prime seats at Radio City Music Hall to watch the anatomically illogical superstar knock her Showbiz ball out of the damn park. But, seriously, how does this woman not knock all that tchotcke around with her giant personality and super-sized chest and/or snag her big ol' wigs on all that country crap that clings to ever surface available in the itty-bitty cottage?
And what about that room? You know which one we're talking about, the garage cum guesthouse one the buff-toned leather recliner and the toilet set out in the open right up next to the kitchenette. We don't mean to be crude, children, but a person could make microwave popcorn and take a dump at the same time. How–ahem—unusually convenient.
Miz Parton, according to The Bizzy Boys at Celebrity Address Aerial, owns several other homes and homesteads including a small cottage near the zoo in Nashville and a large estate surrounded by housing developments near Brentwood, TN. They also keep a wee place in rugged Idyllwild, CA, and a vast tract of land outside Pigeon Forge, TN, not so far from where Miz Parton grew up in extremely humble circumstances.
