The longtime Beverly Hills home of actor Gene Barry has come on the market at $5,995,000.
The Spanish-style hacienda, built in 1927, retains the original painted beams in the living room. Nearly 7,000 square feet of living space include seven bedrooms, five bathrooms and maid's quarters with a bathroom in the main house and a one-bedroom, one-bathroom guesthouse. The main house, on more than one-third of an acre, opens to a swimming pool.
Barry, who died at 90 in 2009, starred in the 1953 film "The War of the Worlds" and appeared in the 2005 remake. He was known to television audiences for his role as Bat Masterson in "Legendary Lawman" (1958-61) and the title role in "Burke's Law" (1963-66).
