The stylish long-time home of award-winning actor and gun advocate Charlton Heston is due to formally hit the market tomorrow—the house in Coldwater Canyon was designed for the Ben-Hur star in 1959 by architect William S. Beckett, who kicked off his career as the chief designer for Sumner Spaulding (the architect behind Case Study House #2). The Heston house has been “the private residence of the Heston family” since its completion; though the patriarch died in 2008, a trust in his name still appears on property records for the estate.

The five-bedroom house gives off strong time capsule vibes and includes six and a half bathrooms, a private office with a balcony, a formal dining room, a covetable library, and a marble bar. There’s also a three-story artist’s studio with an elevator, screening room, and its own bedroom and bathroom. The property in all totals three acres, and has a private and gated driveway with room for 10 cars, and both a swimming pool and a tennis court. There’s no listing up yet for the property, but listing agents Myra Nourmand and Howard Stevens tell us that it will be asking $12.249 million.
