The longtime home of late actress Ann Morgan Guilbert, known to millions of TV viewers as next-door neighbor Millie Helper on “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” has sold for $2.64 million.
Sitting on a double lot overlooking Temescal Canyon, the English country-style home retains such 1940s details as hexagonal tile floors, original brick fireplaces and diamond-pattern leaded glass windows.
The 2,321 square feet of living space includes a formal living room, an updated kitchen, a dining nook, four bedrooms and 3.25 bathrooms. In the game room/den, walls of built-in bookshelves surround the living space.
Multiple decks and balconies extend the living space outdoors. The tree-topped setting was designed by noted landscape architect/designer Cleo Baldon and her partner, horticulturist Sid Galper.
The quarter-acre property had been listed at $2.65 million prior to the sale.
Sara Clephane and Mike Deasy of Deasy Penner & Partners were the listing agents. Allan Glass of ASG Real Estate represented the buyer.
Guilbert, who died last year at 87, was a regular cast member of “The Dick Van Dyke Show” for its full run from 1961 to 1966. She had acting credits that included a recurring role on the sitcom “The Nanny.” More recently, the character actress appeared on the shows “Getting On” and “Life in Pieces.”
