Armstrong, Sinatra and now David Ono? The KABC news anchor recently spent $2.1 million for a Toluca Lake house steeped in musical history, The Real Deal has learned.

Ono’s new estate, located on Camarillo Street, once belonged to acclaimed jazz trumpeter Manny Klein, who played with Benny Goodman and Sammy Davis Jr. Rumor has it that in another one of its many lives, the house was a lounge spot for Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby.

More recently, the 4,378-square-foot residence belonged to the pop duo Karmin. The property consists of a four-bedroom main house and a 2,000-square-foot guest house designed to be part of a faux town in the back lot, featuring sidewalks, street lamps and even a café façade.

In addition to the quaint, make-believe setting, the property has a 40-foot swimming pool, pool house, koi pond and outdoor dining area.
