UPDATED, 7:24 a.m., July 5: A mansion in Brentwood with a rich history of celebrity residents and famous designers has hit the market.

The former home of singer Linda Ronstadt and the late silent film star ZaSu Pitts is being shopped on the Multiple Listing Service for $16.25 million, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Designed by Paul Williams, the architect known for designing homes for celebrities including Lucille Ball and Frank Sinatra, the 10,000-square-foot estate boasts seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The Georgian-style property, built in the 1930s, also features a secret staircase, seven fireplaces, a swimming pool and a home gym.

Michael Smith, the designer during the Barack Obama-era White House, also recently upgraded the home’s interiors to reflect the traditional Williams style.

Ronstadt purchased the home in the late 1980s for $3.5 million, and sold it in 2005, records show. The property’s most-recent owners paid an undisclosed amount for the home in April 2006.

Jody Fine and Monica Iris Antola of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties have the listing.

Pitts is best known for her role in the 1924 silent film “Greed.” She died in 1963. [LAT] — Natalie Hoberman
