The longtime home of Academy Award-winning actor Charlton Heston is for sale in the Beverly Hills area at $12.249 million.

Set on a knoll in the hills above Coldwater Canyon, the residence was designed by renowned Midcentury Modern architect William S. Beckett and built in 1959. The dramatic home, which retains its original vibe, has been owned by the Heston family since.
