If you were dreaming of living in Carole Lombard's one-time house on Hollywood Boulevard, prepare to wait at least another two years. The Los Angeles Times reported earlier this month that the fabled residence Carole called home from 1934 to 1936 and the site of several of her most famous parties, has been leased:

"A house in the Sunset Strip area that actress Carole Lombard lived in during the 1930s came on the market in March for sale at $1,595,000 or for lease at $6,500 a month. It already has been leased out for two years.

"The French Regency-style home is set behind gates. It has an art studio, a music-media room, four bedrooms and three bathrooms in nearly 3,000 square feet of living space with original fixtures. A spiral staircase off the master suite leads to a loft. The separate guesthouse includes a kitchenette.

"Lombard, who died in 1942 at 33, was married to leading men William Powell and Clark Gable. She is listed among the American Film Institute’s top screen legends.

"The property last changed hands in 1994 for $420,000, according to public records."

Look on the bright side: You get two more years to try to win the lottery that will give you sufficient funds to move into the place.

One more thing: "Carole & Co." now has a new URL, http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/. It's a bit easier to remember than the old listing.
