If you like your Los Angeles area homes with a side of history and a generous dose of bohemian than I've got the place for you. The LA Times led us to the 1938 Spanish-style home in the Hollywood Hills of a pair of writers Roger Simon and Sheryl Longin. This expansive home has seven bedrooms and two office in over 3,300 square feet of space. It also has a past, the listing says the home was lived in by Oscar and Nobel Prize nominees as well as Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe. Certainly the home has its own charms including vibrant zigzagl tilework in the kitchen and intricate Moroccan-style tile in the bathrooms. The home makes liberal use of color and finishes for a home that is charmingly mismatched and has a funky appeal. This is a bare feet and jeans kind of house with a black-bottom pool and terraces that offer plenty of room for entertaining. This home was listed at $2.695 million earlier in the year but can now be had for $2.295 million.
