The Pacific Palisades home of Eddie Albert is on the market for $19.5 million.

The five-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bathroom home was built in 1933 and occupies 4,818 square feet.

Located on Amalfi Drive in The Riviera, the two-story home is currently opened by landscape designer Jay Griffith, who has worked with celebrities, including Brad Pitt.

Griffith told the W that he bought the home in 2006 for $7 million. He has since restored the wood and windows, and lightly remodeled the kitchen.

Situated on a 33,000-plus-square-foot lot, this John Byers early California hacienda offers sweeping views of the ocean and canyons. A lawn surrounds a pool and several outdoor pavilions.

Beauty on the outside matches beauty on the inside: There is a two-story entryway, living room with an oversized fireplace, vintage pub, period fixtures and more.

The home features a large, multi-room master wing, separate two-room guest suite and motor court.

The late Albert, whose full name was Edward Albert Heimberger, was famous for his role as Oliver Wendell Douglas on the American sitcom “Green Acres,” which first aired in September of 1965. He starred opposite Eva Gabor, who played his wife, Lisa Douglas.

Albert lived in the home from the 1950s until his death in 2005.
