Doris Day sells her former Hollywood home in Beverly Hills
Published: March 6, 2006
The home that Doris resided in during her Hollywood “movie” days is on the
market for the first time in over 40 years!
Bought during the 1950s, the five-bedroom house on Crescent Drive, was formerly
occupied by the star and her husband/manager Marty Melcher. It was also the
setting for many photo shoots and interviews prior to Doris’s relocation to the
sanctuary of Carmel-by-the-sea. In more recent years Doris’s son, Terry Melcher,
lived at the home until his sad passing in 2004.
Built in 1922, the stunning 4,300-square-foot home is expected to easily attain
in excess of $5 million (US dollars).
“I loved the years I spent on Crescent Drive….I have so many great memories
of that wonderful neighbourhood. Now it’s time for someone else to enjoy it
the next 40 or 50 years.” – Doris Day (2006)
