"Inspector Gadget" creator Andy Heyward and his wife, Amy, have sold their house in Hollywood Hills West for $7.1 million.
Set at the end of a long gated drive in the celebrity-coveted Bird Streets neighborhood, the East Coast-inspired traditional-style house was built in 1966 and is attributed to early architect-to-the-starsPaul Williams. The more than half-acre knoll-top lot has expansive views of the cityscape.
Some 3,750 square feet of remodeled living space includes a center hall, a library/study, a screening room, an office, a gym, three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. There are fireplaces in the living room, dining room and master bedroom suite.
The grounds contain a swimming pool.
Heyward, 65, is the former head of the animation production company DiC Entertainment, which was sold in 2008. He is the chairman and chief executive of Genius Brands International, which focuses on "content with a purpose" for children.
Public records show the property was purchased in 2010 for $4.75 million.
Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency was the listing agent. Fred Bernstein of the same firm represented the buyer.
