The Sherman Oaks estate where bandleader Ray Anthony launched his record, ‘My Marilyn’, with a party for his muse in August 1952, is back on the market, the Los Angeles Times reports (and you can read more about the ‘My Marilyn’ party here.)
“Other high-profile visitors over the years include Gene Simmons of Kiss, Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac and producer Quincy Jones. These days, it’s owned by Kelly Stone, sister of actress Sharon Stone, who just listed it for sale at $5.475 million — quite a leap from the $40,000 Anthony paid for the place back in 1952.
The half-acre compound makes the most of its space with four residences combining for eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms in 7,000 square feet. Lush gardens bring color to the secluded grounds complete with a swimming pool, gym and multiple private entrances.
Anthony, 98, is the last surviving member of the Glenn Miller Orchestra, a famous 20th century swing dance band with 16 No. 1 singles. He later formed his own band called the Ray Anthony Orchestra, which had hits such as ‘The Bunny Hop’ and ‘Hokey Pokey.'”
