On The Market: Charlton Heston’s Beverly Hills Estate

Heston15

The estate of the late Charlton Heston is on the market and it’s a perfect fit for someone who appreciates mid-century modern style in the form of 10,000 square feet on three acres of property and has Judah Ben-Hur, Moses from The Ten Commandments and George Taylor from Planet of the Apes as the former owner.  The Heston Home, as it is endearingly known, is perched in the Coldwater Canyon neighborhood of Beverly Hills with five bedrooms and six and half bathrooms. In the back side of the home is an angular pool which immediately links to a stunning observation deck, along with a three-story art studio, screen room, tennis court, and a somewhat out of place meditation area.

Originally designed by architect William S. Beckett, there are  views of the surrounding mountains from virtually every room in the house. The asking price is $12.249 million, but the house needs updating so while you’re purchasing a piece of Hollywood history, you might not be done spending when you move in.
