Rod McKuen’s Beverly Hills Estate on Sale

Rod McKuen, the husky-voiced “King of Kitsch” whose music, verse and spoken-word recordings in the 1960s and ’70s won him an Oscar nomination and made him one of the best-selling poets in history, died this January. He was 81. Now, his longtime Beverly Hills estate is on the open market as a probate sale, priced at $15 million.
