“Inspector Gadget” co-creator has listed his updated home in Bel-Air, California, for sale for $10.495 million.
Andy Heyward, producer, writer and chief executive of the entertainment company Genius Brands International, has listed his updated home in Bel-Air, California, for sale for $10.495 million.
Heyward bought the traditional-style home two years ago from Penske Media Corp. founder Jay Penske for $7.25 million and added a range of new features during his ownership. Among them is a custom screening room, a fully equipped gym and TV nook/sitting room. A new audiovisual system can be enjoyed in every room.
The shake-sided two-story, built in 2011, also includes a step-down living room, a library with custom built-ins and a center-island kitchen. Wraparound terraces and a screened sun porch provide space for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining.
The master suite, with its dual closets and custom bathroom, takes in city and canyon views from a private balcony. In all, there are five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms in more than 5,000 square feet of living space.
Outdoors, a long infinity-edge swimming pool lies on the edge of the acre-plus property. A motor court sits at the end of the home’s gated driveway.
Heyward formerly headed the animation production company DiC Entertainment, which was sold nine years ago. He is the co-creator of the cartoon “Inspector Gadget,” as well as producer of such animated shows as “The Real Ghostbusters” and “Sailor Moon.”
