Home of the Day: Midcentury modern with movie star good looks


Actor Brendan Fraser lived in this handsome midcentury home in Beverly Hills when “George of the Jungle” and “The Mummy” were debuting in theaters.

Today, the property continues to reflect the former owner’s artistic interests and flair for Hollywood glamour. Recent renovations include the addition of a photography darkroom, a personal home theater, a gym and a wine cellar.

Walls of floor-to-ceiling glass look onto a solar-heated swimming pool with a waterfall feature.
