This Is the End for James Franco in Silver Lake: Duplex on the Market for $949K
Jenny Anderson/WireImageJames Franco is known as an actor, screenwriter, director, published author, and poet. Now he’s dabbling in the real estate industry. A two-unit building in L.A.’s Silver Lake district owned by the star is for sale for $949,000, Variety first reported.
The Mediterranean-style building includes two apartments, each one bedroom and one bathroom. The “two warm and inviting units,” delivered vacant, ooze rustic charm and include many nooks and outdoor terraces on the hillside lot.
Together, the total living space is 1,496 square feet on a 7,492-square-foot lot.

An inspiration, no doubt, for a screenwriter’s home office.

A neighbor complained to Curbed Los Angeles in 2013 that “the individuals on the property appear to be running a MAJOR production company out of the house and have also used it for shoots.”
Whatever its past purpose, the duplex stands empty and awaits its next inhabitants and their creative pursuits, hopefully while not bothering the neighbors.
After Franco sheds this place, he’s on to an array of other projects. The “Freaks and Geeks” star can currently be seen on the HBO series “The Deuce.”
The 39-year-old, known for blockbusters like “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” is also connected with arty short films and indies alike, such as the anticipated film “The Disaster Artist,” which he directed and stars in, on the making of “The Room,” a cult classic considered perhaps one of the worst movies of all time.
