Longtime home of Lizabeth Scott, known for her smokey voice and film noir roles, was designed Robert Byrd

The longtime home of Lizabeth Scott, the film noir beauty of the 1940s and '50s, has come on the market in Hollywood Hills at $1.79 million.

The farmhouse residence, designed by indoor-outdoor-style architect Robert Byrd and built in 1940, retains its classic good looks. Set above the Sunset Strip behind gates, the two-story home takes in views of the cityscape.

The fresh-looking white siding belies the home’s vintage. A round red-brick chimney rises from the living room at the center of the house.

The ground floor of the 1,787-square-foot house features white-walled living and dining rooms, wood floors, a galley-style kitchen and a powder room. Upstairs two en suite bedrooms have pitched and beamed ceilings.

A brick patio off the living room sits beside the kidney-shaped swimming pool.

Scott, who died this year at 92, was a popular leading lady known for her striking face and sultry voice. The onetime “It” girl starred with Elvis Presley in “Loving You” (1957), opposite Humphrey Bogart in “Dead Reckoning” (1947) and with Barbara Stanwyck and Van Heflin in “The Strange Love of Martha Ivers” (1946).

Zach Goldsmith of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, is the listing agent.
