Original house on this site, built by Michele Morgan in the 40's, became home of Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski. She was murdered here with 4 others in 1969.
Thanks for this great photo. It really gives a great perspective of the what the house looked like from a distance with the canyon behind it. And also thanks for the photo of the rebuilt house. I guess it had to be demolished for obvious reasons. Thanks again..
That's a great photo of the original property. thanks.
Does anyone know where the caretaker's house was located, is it visible here?
I Think the new house has to be demolishd for obvious reasons.
The caretaker's house is on the far left in the photo. You can see the poolside umbrella in between the houses. The gate is to the right down the driveway (where Parent was shot) and not visible here. From the gate you could only see the end of the garage where the stairway is. Frykowski lay on the lawn to the left of the break in the hedge that leads to the front door. Folger was to the left of the leaning tree.
Nice Photo. Which date was it taken? Before or after the Tate massacre?
The Tate residence as it was in august of 1969. I think that Manson made his mistake when he thought that Doris day's step son, co- producer of the beach boys terry was staying here before Roman Polanski rented it. It was terry and Dennis Wilson who promised Manson a visit @Sphan Ranch and never showed. This angered Manson, and since he had been here before,thought it would be the perfect place for revenge, and to ignite Helter Skelter!!!
