Set on more than half an acre with a swimming pool in the celebrity-populated Bird Streets neighborhood, the traditional-style house was designed by architect Paul Williams and built in 1966. The 3,560 square feet of living space includes a library/study, a screening room, an office, a gym, three bedrooms and 31/2 bathrooms.
Heyward, 63, is the former head of the animation production company DIC Entertainment, which was sold in 2008. He and his wife have since founded A Squared Entertainment.
Public records show the property was purchased two years ago for $4.75 million.
