The broker for this newly listed 1965 two-bedroom, two-bath is trying hard to prove the home's architectural and historic pedigree. There's so much desperate name-dropping to prove it has Hollywood connections, it's like eavesdropping on a couple of CAA junior agents at the Century City mall's food court. From the listing: "Classic 1965 Edward Grenzbach mid-century post and beam, in the heart of Sunset Strip. Never before on the market. Home of legendary talent agent/manager Richard Clayton. A few of his clients: James Dean, Burt Reynolds, Jane Fonda." The house has an open floor plan, walls of glass, hardwood floors, a kick-ass pool and a detached guest house (although someone should do something about that green carpet). Claytonpassed awaya few weeks ago, and the listing assures: "trust sale no court confirmation required." Asking price:$1.995 million.
