A Spanish villa that silver-screen stars Carole Lombard and William Powell once called home has come on the market at $1,395,000 in L.A.'s Whitley Heights neighborhood.

Built by architect-builder Bruce McCaskill in 1926, the four-bedroom, 3 3/4 -bathroom house has been restored and qualifies for Mills Act property tax benefits. Classic details remain throughout the house, including original ironwork, vaulted ceilings in the foyer and a grand staircase.

The gated two-story home has 3,238 square feet of living space and views of the Hollywood Hills and Hollywood sign. An enclosed garden courtyard has a spa and fountain.

Lombard and Powell were paired in the 1931 film "Man of the World." They were married that same year and divorced two years later. In 1936, they worked together again in "My Man Godfrey," for which Powell received one of his three Academy Award nominations.

The listing agent is Tim Swan, Prudential California Realty, Beverly Hills.
