Jane Fonda and long-time, man-friend list their contemporary in Trousdale Estates. $12.9 Mil.

1575 Carla Ridge is in one of Beverly Hills’ toniest sections and has two of the toniest owners around: Fonda and music producer, Richard Perry. To my eyes, 1575 is a really sweet property. Variety reports the the home was built in 1961. It has been renovated top to bottom.

Variety, “The wood sided and stone accented contemporary sits behind gates on a large-for-the-neighborhood .83-acre parcel and incorporates a number of green-minded features that include bamboo floors, photovoltaic electric panels, bio-ethanol fueled fireplaces, and UV thwarting double-glazed thermal glass windows with motorized shades. The shimmering stainless steel garage door that so quickly caught Ms. Fonda’s attention matches the stainless steel front door that opens to a mid-level entrance gallery with what is unquestionably the property’s most unexpected, dramatic and arguably gratuitous feature, an all-glass elevator.”

I’d attempt to describe this Carla Ridge mid-century trophy property, but why even try when Fonda does that so nicely by herself?

As a Sr. Writer at T. Rowe Price, I work with a group of the best copywriters around. We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services. _____________________________________________ A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back. In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
