The vacant, 0.97-acre (39,997-square-foot) property at 12900 Mulholland Drive that he purchased from actor Marlon Brando’s estate (Larry Dressler and Avra Douglas) in March 2005 for exactly $5M (PIN # 4386-003-010). He bought the property and Brando’s decrepit house, and then razed the house — which was known as Frangipani — shortly thereafter. The demolition wasn’t a surprise, based on the fact that Nicholson had told Army Archerd in 2006 that Brando’s house had become “decrepit” and had a mold problem. “And getting the mold out would be difficult. It’s more than likely we will take the house down,” Nicholson told Archerd at the time.
