Evans Evans Lists Beverly Hills Mini-Estate

Though prolific director John Frankenheimer went to meet the great studio chief in the sky more than a decade ago, his widow, Evans Evans Frankenheimer, is only now selling the Beverly Hills mini-estate they shared. Asking price: $3.85 million.

Property records indicate John Frankenheimer — who took home four Emmys for a quartet of 1990s television movies (think “George Wallace,” “Against the Wall,” “The Burning Season”) — purchased the .71-acre corner property in the exclusive Benedict Canyon Estates ’hood in early 1990 for $2.2 million. Listing details show the 4,629-square-foot residence was originally built in 1977, and is currently configured with four bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms, including complete his-and-her master suites, each decked out with marble bathroom, wood-burning fireplace, custom built-ins and direct garden access.

An office lined with floor-to-ceiling built-in bookshelves has a separate entrance and private sun deck. The back of the house opens through numerous French doors to a red-brick terrace and swimming pool surrounded by thick, lush foliage. Various and verdant gardens feature a fern courtyard and a fountain area, and lighted brick pathways meander throughout the property, which includes a lighted tennis court.
