It’s not easy to put a dollar figure on Hollywood lore, even when the piece of it is real estate. But, priceless history aside, $7.55 million seems about right. That’s what Barbara Sinatra’s estate is asking for her penthouse on what is known as L.A.’s “Millionaire Mile” or the Wilshire Corridor.

The collection of prestigious high-rises amassed along this major east-west thoroughfare has long been a spot for glitterati to perch when they land in town.

Barbara Sinatra, widowed and seeking a more secure residence after being robbed in Beverly Hills, found her way to this Westwood address a few years following entertainer Frank Sinatra’s death in 1998. The two had been married 22 years when the legendary singer passed. It was his fourth marriage, her third.

Penthouse A, at 10560 Wilshire Blvd., became her Westwood residence. When she wasn’t at her beach house in Malibu, or tending to her center for abused children from her base in Rancho Mirage, the former model and Vegas showgirl could be found at the 5,600-square-foot residence, sometimes hosting a poker game.

Double doors open to a large living space where ample seating surrounds a marble fireplace. The window-lined corner room reveals the city, ocean and mountain views that Barbara Sinatra and her A-list guests took in.
