Anyone who happened to pass through the event and fall in love with Surplus Candy LA’s disaster house—built in 1911—will be pleased to know it’s up for sale for $900,000. Back in 2013, it was being bundled for sale (for a total of $2.45 million) with the house next door, the historic yet “uninhabitable” Beckett Residence (aka Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #117), built for Dr. Wesley Beckett, once a member of the board of trustees at USC. (That house is in much better shape than the one in which the art show took place, though that’s not saying a lot.) Now it seems the two are still available together, with the owners holding firm on that pricetag. But beware, investors: Hanksy warned Los Angeles magazine that the Surplus Candy mansion is “basically Money Pit IRL.”
