Buy Mary and Lee Blair’s Home

Mary and Lee Blair's home

A little over a month we posted about Ward and Betty Kimball’s home being listed for sale. That home was purchased almost immediately. My understanding is that the Asian couple who acquired it weren’t animation fans and simply liked the large lot. So here’s a chance for the animation community to redeem itself and purchase another LA home built for animation legends: the first home of Mary and Lee Blair is currently listed for a measly $725,000. The two-bedroom Hollywood Hills hideaway was designed for the couple in 1939 by Harwell Hamilton Harris, a protege of Richard Neutra and Rudolf Schindler, and hasn’t been on the market since 1955. If you don’t buy this, I’m going to be very disappointed.
