The Carpenters


AT HOME
WITH THE
CARPENTERS?!?

TVparty viewer Sal Gomez sends us a home video of a trip through the Carpenter's Newville Avenue home:

"I have included a tour of the former Carpenter home in Downey California. This was shot in 1999 as part of a tour package from an convention celebrating 30 years since the release of the 1st Carpenter album.

Carpenters TV Shows

"The house (no longer owned by Richard Carpenter) is located on Newville Ave and is referred to as the Newville home. It was purchased by Richard and Karen in 1970, just after the success of the "Close To You" single, as a place where the brother and sister could live in and use as a home, office and rehearsal room. They bought the empty lot next door and expanded the house to include a Billiards room, wine cellar, soundproof music room and garage.

"Richard and Karen bought another home located 2 1/2 miles away on Lubec Street for their parents but when their parents temporarily moved into the Newville house they refused to leave so the house became the home of their parents. Richard & Karen moved into the much smaller Fidler Ave home together until Karen moved out in the late-seventies into a high-rise condo on the Avenue Of The Stars in Century City.

"Karen Carpenter died in the Newville Ave home. She had gone there the night before have dinner with her parents and to spend the evening so she could go shopping with a friend of hers at a local Downey Gemco the following morning.

"The Newville home is also famous to Carpenter fans for appearing on one of the duo's album covers ("Now & Then").

"Richard Carpenter continued to live in Downey California (a very middle class neighborhood) until February of this year. The Newville house and Richard's home were both extensively decorated for the Christmas holiday seasons over the years so you could infer that their specials were true to their feelings for Christmas.

"Richard stayed in Downey to be near his mother until she passed away 5 years ago, he left Downey in the summer of 2000 to live in his new home in Thousand Oaks. He has also begun to work more in recent years and has appeared in a video concert special featuring Petula Clark that aired on PBS stations in December. Richard accompanies Petula on a couple of numbers made popular by the Carpenters."
