The Hollywood Reporter has an exclusive report on the upcoming listing of the former Chandler Estate on Lorraine Boulevard.
According to THR, the current home of Joseph Handleman and Courtney Callahan will be listed at $11.25 Million when it goes on the market April 24th. The couple has spent the last six years making repairs to the 9,326 square foot home, purchased in 2006 for $8.70 Million.
The current owners are in a legal dispute with the former owner of the Estate. They allege that they were misled about the condition that the house was in when they purchased it. According to the LA Times article, arbitration documents indicate that the home “was rotten to the core.”
