A penthouse with ties to William Holden, the late award-winning actor, is being marketed for sale for $15 million.

Holden, who rose to fame in the 1950s with “Sunset Boulevard,” once owned the entire building on 535 Ocean Avenue, the Wall Street Journal reported. He also lived in one of the units until his death in 1981, though it’s not clear if it’s the same penthouse that is now on the market.

The 8,000-square-foot penthouse boasts five bedrooms. There’s also a 2,300-square-foot rooftop deck with hot tub, six parking spaces, and of course, sweeping ocean views.

Howard Murad, a dermatologist and beauty entrepreneur, and his wife, Loralee, are the sellers. They purchased the property in 2011 for $10.5 million, property records show.

Murad recently spent $150,000 upgrading the home’s outdated interior decor, he told the WSJ.

Rochelle Maize of Nourmand & Associates has the listing.

In addition to “Sunset Boulevard,” Holden starred in “Stalag 17,” “The Bridge on the River Kwai” and “Network.” He struggled with alcoholism. While intoxicated at his apartment in Santa Monica, he suffered a serious fall, hit his head and died at age 63. [WSJ] — Natalie Hoberman
