The one-time home of late Academy Award winner Wallace Beery, who passed away in 1949 at the age of 64, has been put on the market for $899,000.
According to NBC L.A., Beery had the home built in the 1930s because he was at the movie studio so often and wanted a home in close proximity. He recruited local architect William Kesling to design a home only a short distance from the studio.
Beery became a household name in the 30s, starring in the movies "Min and Bill," "Treasure Island," and "Viva Villa!" in addition to more than 230 other films.
The estate was first listed in July for almost $1.1 million, but has undergone several price reductions to appeal to potential buyers. It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The current owner of the home, producer Michael Taylor, renovated recently by adding eco-friendly plantings, a rear patio, Koi pond and walking paths.
The home was also modernized by Taylor, who added central air conditioning, a tankless water heater and updated the fireplace to run on gas.
Beery's former home is just one of several in the Hollwood area that have recently been placed on the market and seen moving trucks
pulling up outside. Actress Michele Greene also sold her home recently in the same neighborhood.
