(MCT)—Grammy-winning singer Sheryl Crow has listed her compound in Hollywood Hills West at $15.95 million.

The 11-acre property includes a Spanish Revival main house, a 1909 Craftsman, a cottage built in 1885, an infinity-style swimming pool and a pergola with a fireplace and barbecue.

The main residence, built in 1914, features a two-story foyer with wrought-iron stair railings, a step-down living room, original Spanish tiles, beam ceilings, a library, a wine cellar, a music room, four bedrooms and 3 ½ bathrooms.

The Craftsman house contains three bedrooms and three bathrooms, and the cottage, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The grounds have mature trees, a bridge, trails and a playground.

Crow, 50, has sold more than 35 million albums. Among her Grammy-winning songs are “There Goes the Neighborhood,” “Sweet Child o’ Mine” and “All I Wanna Do.”

She is working on music for the Broadway musical “Diner,” and on a new album in Nashville, where she lives and owns property.

A History of Stellar Tenants

A triplex in West Hollywood that has counted film star Marilyn Monroe and singer Frank Sinatra among its former tenants has come on the market at $4.75 million.

Monroe’s and Sinatra’s rentals overlapped in 1961. She lived in hers and he used his apartment as a getaway, according to “Mr. S: My Life With Frank Sinatra,” written by George Jacobs, his valet at the time.

The owner is Beverly Coburn, actor James Coburn’s first wife. She bought the building in 1989 for $1.643 million from interior designer Kalef Alaton, who had remodeled it.

The three units in the gated compound share a courtyard and patio space. The main unit features floor-to-ceiling glass doors in the living room, high ceilings, five fireplaces and two bedrooms. The above-garage studio has a fireplace, a kitchenette and terrace space. A one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit with an office includes an atrium garden.

There are a total of four bedrooms and six bathrooms in 5,637 square feet of living space.

Malibu Beach Home is a Hit

Someone must have written the offer that made Barry Manilow sing. The crooner-pianist-producer has sold his beachfront compound in Malibu for $5.45 million.

Built in 1976, the gated contemporary sits on a promontory with a detached guesthouse. Features include a step-down two-story living room with walls of glass to take in the ocean view, vaulted ceilings, five bedrooms, 4½ bathrooms and 3,546 square feet of living space.

Manilow, 69, is a prolific song and ad jingle writer. He won a pop vocal Grammy in 1978 for “Copacobana (at the Copa).” Among his hit recordings were “Mandy,” “Could It Be Magic” and “I Write the Songs.”

He paid $3.85 million for the property a decade ago, public records show.
