After two decades, the O.J. Simpson trial still captures the hearts — and wallets — of Americans nationwide. Thanks, in part, to FX’s new hit series “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson,” the NFL player’s infamous hideout place is now officially off the market.
Located at 16254 Mandalay Drive in Encino, the house in the Valley formerly owned by Rob Kardashian sold on March 23 for $1.3 million. Keller Williams Realty Westside represented the buyer.
The five-bedroom house, where Simpson hid for one day as a fugitive from the LAPD, has been on the market since at least September 2014, when it was listed for $1.9 million. It may have grown more attractive to buyers as “American Crime Story” became a phenomenon. After all, many scenes in the series were shot on location at the property.
In 1993 or 1994, Simpson threatened to kill himself in the house, Kardashian once told Vanity Fair. Simpson made the suicide threat in the bedroom of a then-13-year-old Kim Kardashian, as was revealed on the FX show.
The residence measures 17,708 square feet and was built in 1957. [Curbed] — Cathaleen Chen
