Actor Conrad Bain -- known most, of course, for his role as Mr. Drummond on TV's "Diff'rent Strokes" -- has listed his 3,805-square-foot house in Los Angeles' Brentwood area for $3,175,000.


The Los Angeles Times' Lauren Beale wrote about the listing earlier this month by the immensely likable, 86-year-old Bain of his longtime post-and-beam-style, three-bedroom house in Brentwood.

Built in 1962, Bain's custom-built, light-filled house -- which he has owned since the 1970s -- was designed by architect A. Quincy Jones and has three baths, an expansive living room with a stone fireplace and a high-beamed ceiling, walls of glass, a master suite with two walk-in closets, a granite kitchen with a Sub-Zero refrigerator, a large art studio, an office, and a family room/den, according to public records and listing information. Outdoor features on the 0.5-acre (21,736-square-foot) lot include ocean, city and mountain views; a large fenced garden; a pool; a spa; and patios, according to public records and listing information.

Previously, Bain (shown here with his "Diff'rent Strokes" co-stars Gary Coleman and Todd Bridges) and his wife, Monica, had sold a house they had owned at 171 Ram Island Drive in Shelter Island, N.Y. (on Long Island) in 1996 for $650,000, according to public records.

Beale reported that Bain has relocated to northern California. However, public records do not yet show him having purchased anything there.
