This is what working for Frank Sinatra for 32 years buys you: a nice suburban house on a mammoth lot (12,571 square feet) in North Hollywood. Not bad at all! As the listing notes, the long-time last owner had a “special relationship … with a well-known celebrity”—Dorothy Uhlemann was Sinatra’s “girl Friday,” as his daughter Nancy put it. Built in 1943, the three-bedroom digs have a sunroom, a pool, wood floors, beamed ceilings, and a fireplace. There’s a lot that could be done with these 1,265 square feet. The listing photos’ only hint to the exciting occupation of the previous owner, who died in 2014, is one small portrait of Sinatra resting on a shelf in the dining room. The property is asking $659,000.
