The longtime Beverly Hills home of lyricist Ray Evans has come to market for $9.711 million.
The midcentury modern, designed by architect William Sutherland Beckett, was built in 1952 for Evans. The 3.8-acre property, which has city and ocean views, includes a four-bedroom, five-bathroom main house with an enclosed bridge connecting the upper and lower levels.
There is a guesthouse, an oval-shaped swimming pool and a pool house. The property has panoramic views of the city and ocean.
Evans, who died in 2007 at 92, partnered with Jay Livingston to become the Academy Award-winning songwriting team responsible for "Mona Lisa," "Que Sera, Sera" and "Buttons and Bows."
