Though it’s worlds other than what anybody would think about low cost, the brand new Scott property was not-so-subtly marketed as a really A-list fixer-upper or teardown; the “trophy property” options a sublime 1930s mansion that “might be renovated or changed,” per the itemizing.

Particularly, the property is comprised of two side-by-side heaps in an unique Brentwood canyon that mixed, whole roughly one acre of flat land. The bigger parcel consists of the elegant predominant home, initially designed by acclaimed Previous Hollywood architect Gerard Colcord. The East Coast Colonial-style property presents a sprawling entrance garden, basic crimson brick porch and jade inexperienced shutters that properly distinction with the house’s milky white siding.

All of it is determined by how extensively (and expensively) they select to improve their new digs. One factor’s sure — all of the drama would make for nice TV.
