Note to realtors: “Please research before showing”

It’s been almost 50 years to the date that supermarket chain owner Leno LaBianca and his wife Rosemary, who ran a successful clothing business, were killed by the Manson “family” at their Los Feliz home. That house is now on the market.

Built in 1922, the two-bedroom, one and a half bathroom home sits on a lot that slopes gently in the back, allowing for views of the San Gabriel Mountains.

Inside the 1,655-square-foot home, there are Italian tile floors, a pink-tiled bathroom, a gas fireplace, a formal dining room, and a backyard with a patio and pool. The 31,000-square-foot property also has a covered patio and established fruit trees.

The property has changed hands a few times since the LaBiancas’ were murdered. Online property records show the last sale of the house was in 1998, for $375,000. Despite the passage of time, the agent’s notes do say: “Please research before showing.”

3311 Waverly Drive is now listed for $1.98 million with Robert Giambalvo of Redfin. Listing photos were not immediately available but can be viewed on Redfin.
