Singer and actress Julie Andrews has listed the Brentwood house she owned with her late husband, director and screenwriter Blake Edwards, for $2.649 million.
The traditional-style single-story house features an open plan family room and living room with French doors opening to a garden. The formal dining room has a cathedral ceiling and glass walls. An artist’s studio with a bathroom sits above the garage for a total of four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The walled and gated lot measures less than a quarter of an acre.
Andrews, 76, starred in musicals including “My Fair Lady” and “Camelot.” She won a lead actress Oscar for “Mary Poppins” (1964) and starred in “The Sound of Music” (1965). More recently she voiced Gru’s mom in “Despicable Me” (2010) and the queen in “Shrek Forever After” (2010). Last year she received a Grammy Award for lifetime achievement.
Edwards, who died in 2010 at 88, received an honorary Oscar in 2004 for his work including such films as “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” (1961), “The Great Race” (1965) and the “Pink Panther” films.
Public records show the property was purchased in 1989 for $1.2 million.
Gary Glass of Prudential California Realty in Brentwood is the listing agent, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
