Katselas, who died at 75 on Oct. 24, worked with hundreds of actors, including Al Pacino, Alex Baldwin, Gene Hackman, George C. Scott, Tom Selleck, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ted Danson, James Cromwell, Burt Reynolds, John Glover, Kate Hudson, Patrick Swayze and George Clooney.
His longtime Hollywood Hills residence is being offered for sale at $2.6 million. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom home in 3,800 square feet was built in 1937. It is built of oxidized iron, glass and concrete pillars with large, sand-blasted wooden beams. The floors are polished concrete and hardwood. There is a pool, a spa and a cabana with a bathroom and a second kitchen outside for entertaining in the garden. The home has four fireplaces and a wood-burning stove. There are six skylights and parking for seven cars, three of them garaged. The master bedroom has a steam shower and sauna. According to the MLS, the property has two lots and could be used to build up to eight condos.
