Now on the market for the first time in decades is the longtime residence of award-winning production designer Charles Lisanby, who passed away in 2013 at the age of 89.

Features include original detailed moldings, a stone fireplace, Palladian windows, French doors, and a courtyard patio. The property also has a detached two-car garage with finished studio space above. Asking price is $1.199 million, and open houses are scheduled for Sunday, March 20 between 2 and 5 p.m. and Tuesday, March 22 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
