This 1928 Spanish hacienda in Bel Air was the home of a onetime power couple, EMI's former president Ken Berry and wife Nancy Berry, who worked on advertising and promotional campaigns for acts he signed.
The house is a relic of bygone days of record label excess. According to a Wall Street Journal article (republished on The Independent website), this home often served as a "late-night crash pad for itinerant rock stars and music producers," but the only group identified in that article as using the house was the Spice Girls.
The patio shown here is where Scary, Sporty, Baby, Posh, and Ginger set their boom box in 1997 and choreographed their way into pop history, creating their act and landing a contract with EMI. Spice Girls superfans who can't afford the $19 million should take heart: The house is also for rent at $40,000 month.
