Per the Listing: “Idyllic location meets Rock n’ Roll history meets private 1920’s romantic Spanish revival! 2522 Verbena Drive is a lush 3BR/2.5BA oasis, on an over 9500 square foot lot, offering panoramic Hollywood Hills views, peekaboo Hollywood sign views, architectural detail, space and charm. Hand painted tiles elegantly adorn arched columns that embrace one of the many outdoor spaces, perfect for large but intimate dinner parties… Bohemian and eclectic touches inspire a classic and legendary home. A two-car garage and enchanted entry welcome you to your Hollywood Hills retreat. Formerly owned by Jim Morrison’s manager – legend has it the iconic lead singer of The Doors once went crashing through one of the enormous arched living room windows! Walking distance from Beachwood Cafe, Beachwood Market, the shops and restaurants of Franklin Village and more! Welcome home!”

And there you have it, a tenuous link at best, based on a legend, but at least your friends will be impressed that the Lizard King may have once been covered in shards of glass at your house. Ignoring that legend, the house sort of speaks for itself. Great views, open interior, classic Hollywood.
