​Janet Leigh Former Home Listed For Sale​​

December 3, 2021

Janet Leigh is most notable for her role as Marion Crane in Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller “Psycho,” but was also married to actor Tony Curtis (1951-1962), and her daughters are actresses Jamie Lee Curtis and Kelly Curtis.

It was her breakout role that made the ordinary act of taking a shower a terrifying experience after checking into the Bates Motel.

Leigh died in 2004 at age 77 and the home she once owned in Beverly Hills is now for sale for $4.5 million. Curbed LA playfully posed a cutout of Leigh in the bathtub — not shower, and if you wonder why, it’s because Leigh reportedly did not take showers again — at least for a while.

Leigh’s former home hit the Beverly Hills real estate market just a few days ago and is wonderfully decorated in black and white with splashes of vivid color, including a pink baby grand piano, vivid red on the walls in the dining room, and movable color splashes throughout such as a pink zebra-pattern rug in the bathroom. Also notable are the skull and cross-bone designs on the pillows throughout the house, but somehow it all works.

The contemporary home is gated and private and perched on a hill offering views of the area. It has 4,432 square feet and includes 4 beds and 4.5 bathrooms. The master bedroom has dual bathrooms, a fireplace and balcony. The open living room features soaring ceilings with a two-sided fireplace that also opens to a den. Great outdoor living spaces include a kitchen and cabana style deck area off living room, which flows out to the pool and tennis court.
