This four-bedroom home brings a bit of English countryside charm to Pacific Palisades. It’s not quite as rustic as the Cotswold homes the listing proclaims it to be based on, but it probably offers better views.

The home last appeared on the market in 1971. According to a representative from Deasy/Penner & Partners, who are representing the sellers, it was the longtime residence of character actor Guy Raymond and Ann Guilbert, who played neighbor Millie Helper on the Dick Van Dyke Show and more recently appeared on the HBO series Getting On.

Guilbert passed away in June, and now her daughters—acting coach Nora Eckstein and actress Hallie Withrow—are selling the home.

Built in 1942, the 2,351-square-foot home features hardwood floors, built-in shelving, diamond-paned windows, and dramatic pitched ceilings. A living area includes an impressive brick fireplace and hexagonal tile floors. A winding stone staircase leads to the upper level.

Perched on a hillside, the home also features an expansive back deck accessible from multiple rooms of the house. Surrounded by overhanging trees, the deck offers some nice views, built-in seating, and even a fire pit. Asking price is $3.89 million.

Where: 1724 North Fairfax, Hollywood Hills
When: Tuesday, October 4 from 11:00am-2:00pm
Asking: $5,200,000
What: Originally built in 1923, this grand 5-bed, 6-bath English Style home in the Hollywood Hills recently underwent a comprehensive 2-year renovation. Built during the boom years when cottages-on-steroids like this were the norm, it was the answer to someone’s Cotswold fantasy and kin to the Storybook Style houses going up all over Los Angeles. And while no surface was left untouched and the systems were completely overhauled, the house still retains much of its old-school glamour and grace.

The longtime home of late actress Ann Morgan Guilbert, known for her role as next-door neighbor Millie Helper on “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” has come to market in Pacific Palisades for $3.89 million.

Overlooking lower Temescal Canyon on a quarter-acre lot, the English country-style home is in the whimsical storybook manner popularized in the early 20th century. The fanciful two-story has steeply sloped gables, original brick fireplaces and hexagonal tile floors. Leaded glass windows feature the traditional Tudor diamond pattern.

Within the 2,351 square feet of living space are a formal living room, an updated kitchen, a dining nook, four bedrooms and 3.25 bathrooms. Walls of built-ins bookend a game room/den.

Sliding glass doors open to a series of ironwood-lined decks and patios designed by landscape architects by Sid Galper and Cleo Baldon. Views take in the surrounding treetops and canyon area.

Guilbert, who died in June at 87, had scores of credits as a character actress including a recurring role on the sitcom “The Nanny.” More recently, she appeared on the series “Getting On” and “Life in Pieces.”

Sara Clephane and Mike Deasy of Deasy/Penner & Partners hold the listing.
