According to EJ Fleming’s trusty Movieland Directory, El Contento Drive in the Hollywood Hills has seen its fair share of celebrity inhabitants. This Spanish-Moorish, for instance, was reportedly the home of silent film star Vilma Banky in the 1920s, as well as singer Stevie Nicks, who purchased it in the late seventies and recorded numerous demos there. Built in 1927, the 3,538-square-foot residence features four bedrooms, five baths, hardwood and tile floors, French doors, multiple patios, painted-beam ceilings, arched windows and doorways, vintage tile, a guest apartment/office with kitchen and bath, and, per the listing, a “very private nude pool and spa.” Last sold in 2000 for $1.15 million, the 5,966-square-foot property is now asking $1.625 million. · 2282 El Contento Drive [Official Site] · 2282 EL CONTENTO Dr [Redfin]
