It’s not sprinkled with dew or covered in chocolate, but if you want live like the candyman, look no further than 8842 Evanview Drive.
The brand new Hollywood Hills home just hit the market for a sliver under $8 million. It sits on land that once housed the estate of Sammy Davis Jr., according to housing permits from 1958.
Davis also owned the property next door, at 8850 Evanview Drive — a larger house that last sold for $3.8 million in 2013.
Jason Oppenheim, president of the Oppenheim Group brokerage, redeveloped the 5,000-square-foot residence with architect Jhoiey Ramirez, he told The Real Deal.
Oppenheim acquired the property last year for $2.7 million, records show. He stripped the 1987-built modular-style residence to the studs and expanded the interior space. The floor plan is now completely open in the living areas. It has three bedrooms and four bathrooms.
He spent about $3 million redeveloping the property, he said. It’s his first foray into residential development.
“I went three times over my budget — it’s pretty nuts,” Oppenheim said.
Its most interesting feature? A “conversation pit” in the center of the pool.
Oppenheim also has the listing. In addition to being for sale, it’s available to rent, fully furnished, for $49,000 a month.
