On Monday, the museum put the Hancock Park home of director Michael Govan up for sale for $6.575 million. The property on Muirfield Road is owned by Museum Associates, the nonprofit entity that manages and operates LACMA. It’s listed as a five-bedroom, 5,100-square-foot Tudor-style home from 1926 that sits on nearly a 22,000-square-foot lot, according to public records.

Real estate listings, however, show six bedrooms and seven bathrooms, as well as a swimming pool, a guest house and a stairwell area with a neon sculpture by Dan Flavin.
