The former home of Marilyn Manson

This tile-roofed residence in the Hollywood Dell has been around since before talking pictures came about, and if its walls could talk too, no doubt they’d have some juicy stories to tell.

Among the property’s previous known owners are Marshall Chess, who co-founded the Rolling Stones’ record label in the early ’70s, and shock-rocker Marilyn Manson, who possessed the house from the late ’90s to 2004.

Now close to 100 years old, the three-story home is definitely showing its age, and, per its listing, is “in need of full restoration.” But here’s hoping it can be revived to witness many more interesting tales.

Measuring 1,905 square feet, the three-bedroom Mediterranean Revival has been subjected to some dreadful remuddling, but still retains many lovely original features, including a spiral staircase, ornate plaster and wrought iron work, French doors and windows, stained glass, and a turret.

The home’s strongest selling point, however, would have to be its sizable lot, which encompasses three separate parcels and contains a two-story guest house, a swimming pool, a stream-fed koi pond, a “fern grotto,” and a parking area.

The property is listed “as is” with an asking price of $1.995 million. Open house is scheduled for Sunday between 1 and 4 p.m.

Original character features include stained glass windows and elaborately carved plaster work.

The three-story home has a spiral staircase with wrought iron railing.

There are multiple fireplaces.

The property contains a two-story guesthouse and a koi pond.

Important Info !

When was the last time your home workspace or study station inspired you? For most people, the answer is, “Not recently.”

Whether you’re prepping an area for your work-from-home days or setting up a spot for young scholars to study , you can kick inspiration into high gear with home office solutions that will get your creative juices flowing again.

Window wonder

It’s no secret that sunshine does the body good. Fix up a space near the window so you can soak up plenty of vitamin D while pumping out price lists or writing that term paper.

Greenery looks great near a bright area, so a potted plant or two might help naturally bring your space to life.

Arts and crafts

The age of DIY is upon us. Embrace the casual-cool vibes and create your very own home desk area.

Need a semipermanent to-do list? Try using chalkboard paint to make yourself a giant notepad on a nearby cabinet or a framed chalkboard. Tired of the overdone corkboard for your sticky notes? Framed chicken wire with clothespins makes a more shabby-chic memo board.

The possibilities really are endless for this type of style. Just don’t let your DIYing get in the way of the tasks you originally sat down to do!

Collaboration is key

For those less focus-intensive projects, investigate a collaborative workstation with several small spaces or a giant community table. This type of work environment has been popular among small companies and creative agencies for the purpose of bouncing around ideas.

If you still want your own personal space, put a divider between you and the other desks for some extra privacy, and take it down when it’s time to meet and discuss. You know what they say: Teamwork makes the dream work.

A clear mind

While many of us would like to think we have complete control of our habit of logging onto Facebook or checking what else our calendar has in store for us, most of us really don’t. And the greatest enabler of this sidetracked behavior is a cluttered workspace.

Set the stage for a clean slate with a bright white desk and matching chair, a simple light fixture and an inspiring element. Keeping your workstation simple and clutter-free ensures you have a productive day – even if your homework is less than exhilarating.

Whether you’re up all night cramming for exams or prepping for a work presentation due first thing in the morning, you’ll feel more focused and productive by incorporating any of these tips into your workstation.

The 40th-floor apartment has three bedrooms and Central Park views

Vornado’s 220 Central Park South is one of the more mysterious developments in New York City, with information about the Robert A.M. Stern-designed building coming out in dribs and drabs. No listings were made public, even as the wealthiest of the wealthy snapped up apartments in the condo tower.

But since closings began last year, real estate gawkers have gleaned some information about the building, like the fact that it’s home to the most expensive residence ever sold in the United States. And now, we can finally get a peek inside one of the building’s apartments: A three-bedroom unit on the 40th floor is now on the rental market, asking a whopping $59,000/month.

Like the building itself, the interiors were designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, and anyone familiar with his work at other pricey Manhattan condos will pick up on similarities in the design. It’s all very traditional: There’s white oak herringbone flooring, custom millwork, a marble island in the kitchen, and even more marble—white and black—covering the bathrooms and powder room. The oligarch vibes are strong.

Practically speaking, the apartment has three bedrooms—each of which has an en-suite bathroom—and a powder room. The master bedroom has a dressing room and a walk-in closet, and there are high ceilings throughout.

And the views, of course, are spectacular: The master bedroom and great room both have huge windows that overlook Central Park, and there are southern exposures

The rental at 220 Central Park South is listed with Corcoran’s Carrie Chiang, Loy Carlos, and Andres Perea-Garzon.
