Perched on a hill in a South Los Angeles neighborhood nicknamed the "Black Beverly Hills," a retro residence Ike and Tina Turner once called home is being sold for $999,000. The four-bedroom, 2.75-bathroom Mid-Century Modern home in View Park has retained the feel of a bygone era. A double-door entry leads to a family room with a stone fireplace and indoor waterfall with a pond. In an opposite corner, a built-in fish tank stands behind a wet bar. Decadent, deep-red carpeting runs throughout the bedrooms, including the master, where a circular bed is elevated on a pedestal under multi-colored lighting. A sliding glass door leads to the patio and pool.
The current owners say they purchased the 2,900-square-foot residence from the Turners, and that it appeared in the 1993 biopic "What's Love Got to Do With It," according to listing agent Ken Conant. The husband-and-wife R&B duo, who scored numerous hits such as "Proud Mary" and "I Want to Take You Higher," ended their tumultuous marriage in 1978. They were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1991. Ike Turner died at age 76 in 2007 and Tina Turner, now 76, remarried in 2013.
