The Skinny: Some Hollywood types are known for having a case of what The Real Estalker would call "the real estate fickle," buying and selling houses ad nauseam and for no apparent reason. Not so with late A-lister Ernest Borgnine. The much-loved actor seemed to love his gated Beverly Hills estate, just below Mulholland Drive, where he spent more than 60 years. Borgnine passed away in July at the age of 95, and his widow, QVC cosmetics entrepreneur Tova Traesnaes, has decided to list the half-acre plot and accompanying six-bed, seven-bath home. The 6,200-square-foot shingled spread might be a bit dated, but in that charming, Old Hollywood sort of way. It's amazing what a little Oscar-class celebrity can do to explain away weird window treatments, chintz, and tile countertops. Designed by architect L.G. Scherer in 1938, the classic mansion, plus a private, one-bedroom guest house, is listed for $3.395M.
