Daughter Kelly Tata Offers a Glimpse into Iconic Entertaining Hub
The West Hollywood, California, residence that once belonged to the late “Beverly Hills 90210” actor Joe E. Tata is now on the market for $2.175 million as reported by Mansion Global. Nestled on a hill, the home boasts expansive views of downtown Los Angeles.
Property records indicate that Tata, known for his role as Nat Bussichio, the owner of the local diner in the 1990s TV show, acquired the property in 2003 for slightly over $875,000. Following Tata’s passing in 2022 at the age of 85, his daughter, Kelly Tata, has decided to sell the house.
Kelly emphasized that the property’s main allure lies in its breathtaking views, extending from the pristine coastline to the dazzling lights of downtown L.A.. She mentioned that her father was captivated by the prospect of waking up to such picturesque scenes each morning and hosted numerous gatherings at the residence over the years, with the cast of “90210” and other notable guests, including the late actor Nicky Blair and Ron Popeil, the creator of television infomercials who passed away in 2021.
The living room, with oversized windows framing the scenic views and a balcony overlooking the city, is highlighted in the listing by Jeffrey Billinger of the Hills Premier Realty. The house features bright white walls, hardwood floors, and yellow and blue accent walls throughout. The four bedrooms include a primary suite with a private balcony, fireplace, dressing room, and spacious bathroom.
While the listing acknowledges that certain areas of the home, including the kitchen, carry a touch of vintage charm, it suggests that the next owner can infuse personal touches to turn this space into their dream home. The property was introduced to the market in mid-December.
