No need to visit the Walk of Fame when your house is steeped in Hollywood history. Rock legend Stevie Nicks and silent-movie star Vilma Banky once called this 1927 Spanish abode home. The 4-bedroom, pool-side estate at 2282 El Contento Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90068 is now asking $1.625 million.

Perched in Hollywood Hills overlooking the city, the property is everything you’d expect in a historic L.A. home. Orange-tiled stairs lead to a turquoise door, setting the tone for the 3,538-square-foot home. Inside, an expansive living room with ornate windows, dark wood beams and a white fireplace make a high-contrast statement.

Old World flair continues throughout the home with vintage chandeliers and beach-washed colors set against blank white walls. Other features include a secluded patio, en-suite baths for all 4 bedrooms and a guest apartment. Evenings in the spa below Southern California sunsets are also a plus.

According to Curbed, Nicks purchased the property in the late ’70s and recorded numerous demos there. The Fleetwood Mac singer-songwriter went on to have an extensive solo career, recording more than 40 top-50 hits and selling more than 140 million albums. A documentary titled “In Your Dreams” was just released to commemorate the making of her first solo release in a decade.

Silent-film actress Banky reportedly lived in the romantic two-story after it was built in the late ’20s. She is best-known for her roles in “The Eagle” and “The Son of the Sheik,” often staring alongside Rudolph Valentino and Ronald Colman.

The house was last purchased in December 2000 for $1.15 million. It can be yours for about $5,714 a month with 20 percent down on a 30-year fixed mortgage.
