Musician Frank Simes lists charming Sierra Madre home for sale

By Neal J. Leitereg

Musician Frank Simes, who has toured and performed with Stevie Nicks, Mick Jagger and the Who, has put his longtime home in Sierra Madre on the market at $1.15 million.

The three-level house, which dates to 1948, has a rustic style befitting its canyon setting. Steeply vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and two brick fireplaces add character to the main living areas. A wall of windows in the living room take in views of the San Gabriel Valley and downtown L.A.

A recording/music studio where Simes has created numerous musical scores and compositions is on the lower level with a step-down conversation pit.

The 2,181 square feet of living space includes a kitchen with a farmhouse-style sink, a dining room, three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The master suite, which sits lofted above the living room, has a walk-in closet.

Dan Harmon, the creative mind behind “Community” and “Rick and Morty,” has found some value in Valley Village. The writer-producer has bought a Spanish-style home that was renovated by actress-designer Mimi Rogers and interior designer Natalie Zimmerman for $3.6 million, records show.

Rogers, best known for her role in “The Rapture,” and Zimmerman gave the 1930s hacienda some much-needed attention during their three years of co-ownership — and it appears the investment paid off. They bought the place in 2016 for $1.35 million, records show.

Gone are the orange walls, pale yellow cabinetry, turquoise tile and gray carpet; the dated design details have been replaced by a clean decor that combines elements of contemporary and Spanish styles.

‘Captain Marvel’ star Brie Larson sells Midcentury home in Laurel Canyon

By Jack Flemming

“Captain Marvel” star Brie Larson has bid farewell to the Hollywood Hills, selling her home in the Laurel Canyon area for $2.17 million, records show. It’ll chalk up as a loss for the Oscar-winning actress. Records show she bought the place in a trust more than that three years ago for $2.09 million. Flanked by lush landscaping and a small stream, the hillside home packs three bedrooms and three bathrooms into just under 3,000 square feet. Skylights punctuate rich beamed ceilings in the open living spaces, which flaunt clerestories, custom built-ins and floor-to-ceiling walls of glass. Just about every common room connects to a central courtyard with a turf dining area. There’s a double-height living room, a family room with a fireplace, a chandelier-topped dining area and a chic kitchen with custom cabinetry and a split-level island. The master suite spans the entire backside of the home, opening to a remodeled bathroom, a spacious closet and a secluded outdoor spa. Larson, 29, starred in the films “Short Term 12” and “The Spectacular Now” before winning the Academy Award for lead actress for her role in 2015’s “Room.” Her big-budget projects since then include “Kong: Skull Island,” “Captain Marvel” and “Avengers: Endgame.”

Marissa Faith of Deasy Penner Podley represented the buyer.
