(MCT)—If you haven’t swooned over Dr. Joe Gannon of “Medical Center” then you haven’t lived…through the early 1970s, that is.
The estate of actor Chad Everett, whose name became synonymous with the dashing doctor, and his actress wife, Shelby Grant, has come on the market in Westlake Village at $3.795 million.
The custom-built Mediterranean sits amid redwoods on a cul-de-sac surrounded by a golf course. The single-story estate features 1.78 acres of park-like grounds, a long circular driveway, a swimming pool and a four-car garage.
The 7,161-square-foot house’s amenities include an oversized foyer, floor-to-ceiling windows, a bar, a den, two kitchen islands, a breakfast room and a porch. There are five bedrooms and six bathrooms.
Everett, who died last year at 75, starred in “Medical Center” from 1969 to 1976 and continued to work in film and television throughout his life. His recent credits include the series “Chemistry” (2011) and “Castle” (2012).
Grant died in 2011 at 74. She appeared in “Medical Center” as well as the films “Our Man Flint” (1966) and “Fantastic Voyage” (1966).
The couple bought the property in 1993 for $1.94 million, public records show.
The Tenants Have Been Stellar
Beverly Coburn, actor James Coburn’s first wife, has sold a West Hollywood triplex with a history of stellar tenants for $3.72 million.
The building has counted film star Marilyn Monroe and singer Frank Sinatra among its residents.
Monroe’s and Sinatra’s tenancies overlapped in 1961. She lived in her apartment, and he used his as a getaway, according to “Mr. S: My Life With Frank Sinatra,” written by George Jacobs, his valet at the time.
The three units in the gated compound share a courtyard and patio space. The main unit features floor-to-ceiling glass doors in the living room, high ceilings, five fireplaces and two bedrooms. The above-garage studio has a fireplace, a kitchenette and terrace space. A one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit with an office includes an atrium garden.
There are a total of four bedrooms and six bathrooms in 5,637 square feet of living space.
Beverly Coburn bought the building in 1989 for $1.643 million.
