My friend Jim Cherry just went on a tour of Bobby Darin’s midcentury Hollywood Hills home, and he wrote up the tour with photos in a recent blog post on his MySpace. Dale Sizer, who happened to be mentioned in my post earlier today, was also there to check out the digs.

The house is at 1411 Rising Glen Road, and has 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths. Jim reports that it’s relatively un-mucked with. It’s being offered for just shy of 3.7M. Here’s the property’s website, with a full photo tour.

    Whatever happened to his Cartopia project?

    Just heard back from Jim — Cartopia is moving forward in a big way. I’m waiting to hear back from him how much of the info he gave me is okay for public consumption.

    Also, he says Danny DeVito was just arriving at Bobby Darin’s house as he was leaving. Who knew DeVito was a midmod fan?
