ALHAMBRA, Calif. (AP) — The hilltop Los Angeles-area mansion where music producer Phil Spector killed actress Lana Clarkson in 2003 is for sale at $5.5 million…
The Daily News reported Sunday that the walled French-style chateau known as “Pyrenees Castle” sits on 2.5 acres (1 hectare) in Alhambra.
Spector is serving a sentence of 19 years to life after his second-degree murder conviction in Clarkson’s death. The 40-year-old actress — star of the 1985 cult film “Barbarian Queen” — was found shot to death in the foyer of the 8,700-square-foot (808-square-metre), nine-bedroom home.
According to the real estate agents, Hilton & Hyland, “The elegant property features 9 bedrooms and 10 baths, a grand marble foyer, stately wood-paneled living room and dining room with beamed ceilings, crystal chandeliers, original hardwood flooring, hand-painted murals, two full kitchens, butler’s pantry, game room, hair salon, 2 home offices, separate employee entrance with segregated living quarters, and four garages. Many upgrades & improvements have been made.”
Jurors were taken to the castle to inspect the scene of the crime during two trials. The first ended in a mistrial.
The 79-year-old Spector is known for his “Wall of Sound” recording technique developed in the 1960s.
