A home once owned by Judy Garland is for sale, and it’s not in Kansas

The gorgeous Malibu beach house is yours for $3.7 million

An idyllic Malibu beach house formerly owned by singing sensation Judy Garland has come on the market for a cool $3.7 million (approximately £2.8 million).

The Wizard of Oz star bought the place in 1947 while married Vincente Minnelli. There have been significant changes since Judy resided there though; in fact it was completely rebuilt in 2013, so it looks a bit different to when she owned it!
