For Sale in L.A.: Rumored Rental Home of Beatles, David Hockney

In Los Angeles, real estate often stays in the celebrity family. If one celeb lives in a home, chances are another will follow suit. Such seems the case with an English-style home at 1385 Miller Place in the Hollywood Hills that's listed for sale at $2.495 million. The charming house reputedly has been rented by a number of stars over the years, starting with The Beatles.

"It was a rental house for a long time," current owner Mike Clifford said. "When The Beatles played the Hollywood Bowl at the height of their fame, they stayed in the house. David Hockney lived in the home for a couple of years and gave my neighbor a painting." Musician Meat Loaf and author Casey Johnson, daughter of Johnson & Johnson's co-founder, also reportedly leased the home. (View the interior in the slideshow below.) The former owner was a Hollywood socialite, and through her, stars discovered the 1939-built home for themselves. Of course, most of the home's rental history is hearsay -- stories passed from owner to owner and neighbor to neighbor -- as rental agreements and lease records aren't kept by the county. The Beatles reportedly stayed in the mid-1960s, followed by artist Hockney in the 1980s.
