The Doors’ Manager Jeff Jampol Lists Laurel Canyon Home
When you’re the manager for The Doors and oversee the estates of Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and Tupac Shakur, one thing is for sure: You’re bound to have a few good stories.
For Jeff Jampol, it’s the stories that make 7963 Willow Glen Rd, Los Angeles, CA 90046 a hard place to leave. Now listed for $1.849 million, the home has been steeped in music-industry history since Jampol, president of JAM, Inc., bought the place in 2006. He still remembers his first houseguest: Andrew Loog Oldham, who managed The Rolling Stones and began his career as a publicist for Bob Dylan and The Beatles.
“Andrew had to leave in the morning,” Jampol said. “But, he left this note saying, ‘Remember, the first guest is the deepest.’”
Since, Jampol has hosted spirited dinner parties with guests including The Cars’ lead guitarist Elliot Easton, “My Sharona” co-writer Doug Fieger and comedian Richard Lewis. He remembers telling stories about the good old days of rock ‘n’ roll in the dining room and hosting lavish pool parties in the backyard, where he introduced 311 lead singer Nick Hexum to his wife, Nikki.
“There is so much magic, so much serenity here,” Jampol said.
He was first attracted to the home because of the degree of detail and layout. “I love the idea of light and open but also private,” he said, noting the home’s 18 skylights. The 1952-built mid-century modern has been meticulously restored with zebrawood, a glass steam shower, sunken jetted tub and Zen-inspired patio.
“I wanted to have the juxtaposition of a mid-century modern that is warmed up and comfortable,” he said. As an art lover, Jampol has lined the 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, lounge areas and hallways with the pieces he’s collected over the years.
The home hit the market last week and is listed by Rock Realty Group‘s Jason Reitz.
Compared to other Hollywood Hills homes for sale, Jampol is asking slightly more than the median list price of $1.799 million. The home is estimated to cost $7,190 a month with a 30-year fixed mortgage, according to Zillow’s mortgage calculator.
