Whose Robert Byrd house is it anyway?

An Encino estate once owned by “Whose Line Is It Anyway” sketch comedian Ryan Stiles and, before him, Oscar-winning makeup and visual effects artist Stan Winston has come on the market in Encino.

Stiles bought the Robert Byrd-designed house from Winston in 2003 for $3.45 million. After about a decade, he sold the property in 2013 for $3 million.

Now up for sale at $3.75 million, the French country-style home on about an acre retains its handsome good looks. Beamed ceilings, stone fireplaces and curving brick and wood details are among features of note.


Within the 7,361 square feet of interiors is a living room with game area, a family room with a wet bar, a formal dining area, a custom wine cellar and a center-island kitchen. Elsewhere, there’s a screening room with a wet bar and a loft that was added by one of the previous celebrity owners.

The master suite has high-vaulted ceilings and a large soaking tub for a total of five bedrooms and seven bathrooms.

Outdoors, a sprawling flagstone patio surrounds a swimming pool and spa. A covered patio with a built-in barbecue sits adjacent to the pool. Mature trees and lawns complete the park-like setting.

Brandon Assanti of Rodeo Realty, Beverly Hills, holds the listing.
