Actor Eddie Albert’s historic home is on the market for the first time in nearly 50 years, being offered at $19.5 million.
Abert was known to millions as Oliver Wendell Douglas on the vintage hit TV series Green Acres (1965), The Beverly Hillbillies (1962) and Petticoat Junction (1963).
He earned 2 Oscar nominations for his performances in Roman Holiday (1953) and The Heartbreak Kid (1972). He was also well known for his portrayal in many other films including The Switch, in which he co-starred with Robert Wagner and Sharon Gless.
Albert’s former home is currently owned by highly recognized landscape designer and philanthropist Jay Griffith. Majestically situated on a 33,000 square feet of stunning landscape, this pristine hacienda offers sweeping views of the mountains and the sea. Set back from the street, the gated and elevated setting affords a world of privacy. The beautiful lawn surrounds the pool and several outdoor pavilions.
The house itself, lovingly maintained in all its vintage glory, is virtually unchanged from the time it was built in 1933. It is complete with a 2-story entry, gorgeous living room with an oversized fireplace, vintage pub room, period fixtures and tile, and much more.
The property is co-listed by Fran Flanagan of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury and Brett Lawyer of Hilton & Hyland.
