The scuttlebutt:

A Hollywood Hills house that was once Oscar-winning actor Marlon Brando’s primary residence is for sale at $3.495 million..

The meticulously maintained Paul Williams-designed home retains its architectural integrity and the traditional details for which the one-time architect-to-the-stars was known. The house, built in 1939, became the site of many Hollywood parties after Brando took up residency in the 1950s.

The history of the property includes a stint as a yoga center whose members included actor Stacy Keach, actress Tina Louise and singers Carole King and James Taylor.

Over the years, the more than 4,000-square-foot house has also been home to such celebrities as “Kung Fu” series actor David Carradine and rock star guitarist Frank Zappa.

Gated and private, the estate encompasses more than two-thirds of an acre. The main level includes living and dining rooms, the master suite and three additional bedrooms, a sun room and an updated kitchen with a high ceiling and a skylight. A bookshelf in the study swings open to reveal a hidden room, a feature Williams often included in his Prohibition-era designs.

A lower level has two guest suites and a family room that opens to a park-like backyard with a barbecue area, a bamboo forest and a sports court. Lawns flank the swimming pool.

Brando, who died in 2004 at 80, won Academy Awards for “The Godfather” (1972) and “On the Waterfront” (1954). He is remembered for such films as “Apocalypse Now” (1979), “Last Tango in Paris” (1972) and “A Streetcar Named Desire” (1951), which he also starred in on Broadway. His empathetic and realistic performances of working-class characters were credited with transforming the art of acting.

The property last sold in 2006 for $2.15 million.
