A home owned by the family of the late Albert Heschong, the Emmy-winning production designer for television, film and theater who headed the art department at CBS for more than two decades, is for sale in Encino at $1.15 million.
Heschong designed and fabricated the custom woodwork in the interiors including coffered ceilings, moldings and built-in cabinets and bookcases.
On the market for the first time in 40 years, the gated ranch house was designed for Hollywood-style entertaining. Its oversized public rooms have easy access to patios and a courtyard shaded by a mature oak tree. There are four bedrooms, four bathrooms and 2,989 square feet of living space plus an artist's studio/workshop with a skylight.
Michelle Tepper of Ewing & Associates, Sotheby's, Sherman Oaks, has the listing.
