Fresh on the market and already in a pending status is the former Sherman Oaks condo of British-American guitarist, singer, and songwriter, Lita Ford, who first started with the SFV based, The Runaways, and later a solo career. The condo hit the market on August 11, 2014 for $279,000 and later went pending on August 26. 

The condo measures 1 Bed/1 Baths on 663 sqft built in 1975. The listing description states:
One of the hidden gems and well priced condos in Sherman Oaks, this back unit offers peace and quiet in a 15 unit Cape Cod style building, fitted with security system and two underground parking spots. Two blocks to a great variety of shops (Whole Foods), the unit features recess lighting, hardwood floors, granite countertops (bathroom) and is packed with new appliances; refrigerator, dishwasher, stove & microwave. Has designer paint, custom sheer blinds in living room, new central air system, ceiling fan in bedroom, walk-in closet, and a patio for entertaining. The on-site laundry room features new front load washers & dryers which are free to use. Gym with flat screen TV also provided. Will sell fast!
According to the following sites,, Paul Miles Presents Chronological Cure, and, Ford lived in this condo with Nikki Sixx around 1984 while they were both up and coming artists located at 4859 Coldwater Canyon Ave #6A. There is also a brief People magazine article mentioning Ford and Sixx time together at a "dingy L.A. apartment."  I am not able to verify this information as property records dont go back that far but I am going to assuming this information is correct coming from three different websites.

In terms of other LA area homes owned by Ford, she also owned a Tujunga home (shown above) backed up against the Angeles Forest that was purchased on March 7, 1989 for $265,000 and later sold on June 21, 1996 for $160,000 representing a $105K loss not including other expenses associated with the home sale. The home measures 3 Beds/2 Baths on 1,978 sqft located on Haines Canyon so seems kinda secluded for a rock star but maybe that was the intention. Ford married Nitro vocalist Jim Gillette in 1994 and divorced in 2011 after some major drama which resulted in the cancellation of a family reality TV show on TLC with her kids and her ex-husband turning their backs on her. On a separate note, this home is located a few houses north of the Scott House by Pierre Koenig

Speaking of Nikki Sixx, he recently moved out of a Calabasas mansion to a Westlake Village mansion which I covered on this blog including Sixx's previous SFV homes and other connections to the SFV.
