Warner estate a short sale

Harry Warner's 14-room Georgian Colonial-style house in Hancock Park was listed at $4.75 million when it went on the market last September. After two prices reductions it was taken off the market, and now it's back on - priced at $3.675 million, according to Redfin (via Curbed L.A.). The estate was built in 1923 and designed by architect Burnside Sturges. Harry, the eldest of the four brothers, sold the place after a few years to help finance "The Jazz Singer."
