The Los Angeles home that Judy Garland bought in 1938 – the same year she was signed to star in The Wizard of Oz – is for sale at $11.5 million. Judy’s home is featured this week at

Built by architect-to-the-stars Wallace Neff, who also designed homes for Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, Fredric March, and Charlie Chaplin, Judy lived in the home for several years along with her mother and sisters.

Located in one of Bel-Air’s most prestigious neighborhoods and near the Bel-Air Country Club, and the Getty Art Museum, the traditional-style home is tucked behind tall hedges on over two acres of lush landscaping and manicured topiaries. Clearly a showplace when it was built in the 1930s and featured in several of the most prominent home magazines such as Architectural Digest, the two-story white home and grounds are still a showplace with its circular-gated driveway, prestigious location, and timeless design.

The 5,513-square-foot home includes five on-suite bedrooms and six-and-a-half baths. Although the home has been meticulously updated, it still retains many of the 1930’s classic Old Hollywood features such as the curved staircase and iron railing from the entry foyer to the second floor. The home has a generously sized living room, several black marble fireplaces, a sunroom, dark hardwood floors, a large bay window, molded walls, and a touch of Art Deco ambiance. There is an extra-large chef’s kitchen with a marble island and top-of-the-line appliances, dining room, office, dressing room, dual walk-in closets, and several conversation areas.
