The longtime home of Ann Rutherford and her second husband, producer and actor William Dozer, at Greenway Drive in Beverly Hills hit the market at a whopping $39.9 million, Variety reported. The house was originally built for former Beverly Hills Mayor Edward Paul Dentzel.

Spanning across 10,400 square feet, the French Revival-style property has five bedrooms, ten bathrooms, a billiards room, a library and a breakfast room paneled with 200-year-old Chinese wallpaper. Outside, a backyard features lush landscaping and an oval swimming pool, gym and spa.

A trust linked to businessman Mark Cohen and his wife, Laurie, purchased the home in 2013 for $7.55 million, property records show. The two renovated and expanded the property to its current state.

Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency shares the listing with Linda May and Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland.

Mark Cohen, who’s made his fortune in the mortgage business, previously owned a 1930s, Paul Williams-designed estate in Holmby Hills. The couple renovated that property, as well, and later sold it to producer Joe Roth for $21.5 million in 2011.

Ann Rutherford, best known for her role in “Gone With the Wind” and as Mickey Rooney’s love interest in the Andy Hardy films, resided in the home until she passed in 2012. Her husband, William Dozier, is credited with creating the 1960s “Batman” television series. [Variety] – Natalie Hoberman
