Onetime Marlon Brando home in Hollywood Hills resembles a castle with its turret entry

A castle-like residence in Hollywood Hills that preeminent actor Marlon Brando once called home has sold for $3.1 million.

Set above Sunset Strip, the 1926 Spanish Revival house features a turret entry, vaulted ceilings, curved hallways and staircases, and wrought-iron railings.

Within the 4,363 square feet of living space are a den, a family room, a rounded art studio, a wine cellar, three bedrooms and four bathrooms. A limestone fireplace takes center stage in the step-down living room.

The formal dining room looks out onto the garden. Floor-to-ceiling windows in other rooms take in cityscape and treetop views.

Brando, known for his realist portrayals, died in 2004 at 80 as a two-time Oscar winner. He won one for his work in “The Godfather” (1972) and the other for “On the Waterfront” (1954). “Apocalypse Now” (1979), “Last Tango in Paris” (1972) and “A Streetcar Named Desire” (1951) are among his most memorable films.

The property came on the market at the beginning of this year for $3.495 million.

Linda May of Coldwell Banker was the listing agent. Barry Sloane of Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer.
