One year after her death at the age of 90, the longtime home of veteran actress Doris Roberts has hit the market.

Roberts, whose six-decade career included scene-stealing roles in Remington Steele and Everybody Loves Raymond, reportedly purchased the Hollywood Hills property in 1976 for $138,000. The 1927 Spanish Colonial Revival had previously been home to Casablanca producer Hal B. Wallis and, some say (though evidence is scant) James Dean.

Located on a promontory above Beachwood Canyon, the 3,700-square-foot house boasts three bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, a great room, a sun room, a formal dining room, a “speakeasy room,” and a family room with wet bar.

Character details include beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, two fireplaces, steel casement windows and doors, and decorative wrought iron work.

Exterior spaces include a heated pool with spa, a cabana bar, and outdoor kitchen.

Asking price for the .27-acre property is $2.45 million. Open house is scheduled for 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday.
