The Hollywood Hills home built for actress Beverly Garland is on the market at $1,765,000.
Designed by Midcentury architect Richard Dorman and constructed by Garland's husband, Fillmore Crank, in 1959, the compound consists of the main house, a detached guesthouse, a children's playhouse and a detached workshop for a total of four bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms in 3,660 square feet. Walls of glass let natural light into the open-plan home. The third-acre grounds include a saline swimming pool, a spa and numerous patios. Garland and Crank were the sole owners of the house, where she lived until her death in 2008 at 82.
Garland began her acting career of more than 50 years in 1950, debuting in the film noir "D.O.A." Her television roles included starring in the then-groundbreaking role of a policewoman in "Decoy" (1957-59), playing Fred MacMurray's second wife on "My Three Sons" (1969-72) and maintaining a recurring role in "7th Heaven" (1997-2004). Crank, a developer, also built the Beverly Garland Holiday Inn in North Hollywood, which Garland owned and operated.
