Let’s say you recently left a good job in the city, working for The Man every night and day. And maybe you made a boatload of money. Now’s your chance to live the dream—a decidedly 1970s-like one—in View Park, California. (If the above career trajectory sounds familiar, it’s because it incorporates the lyrics of a song.)
“Why here?” you ask. For one, it’s where famed musical duo Ike and Tina Turner made their home through ’77, in a neighborhood known as the “Black Beverly Hills.” (Ike and Tina are best known for their cover of “Proud Mary“, while Tina went on to have many hits as a solo artist.)
If you’re looking for luxe interiors, though, you’ll need to make some fairly drastic renovations, as it’s practically frozen in the past. It is so ’70s chic, actually, that it was used for scenes in the filming of the 1993 Ike and Tina biopic, What’s Love Got to Do with It (starring Laurence Fishburne and Angela Bassett in the lead roles). The 2,964-square-foot abode features four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms, with amenities such as a stone fireplace, pool, waterfall, and a wet bar that includes its own built-in fish tank.
