The estate of Larry Gelbart, the late creator of the TV show M*A*S*H, has placed his longtime, seven-bedroom mansion in Beverly Hills, Calif. on the market for $7,999,000.


In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the listing of the 6,724-square-foot mansion by the family of the prolific TV writer, playwright and screenwriter, who died of cancer in September at age 81. Gelbart also scored Oscar nominations for co-writing the movie "Tootsie" and for being the screenwriter for 1977's "Oh God!"

Built in 1924, Gelbart's house, on Alpine Drive in the flats of Beverly Hills, has nine baths, and five bedrooms upstairs, including a master suite with his and hers baths and a kitchenette, according to public records and listing information. Other features include grand-scale public areas, outdoor areas for entertaining, two guest houses, a hidden tennis court, a lagoon-style pool with a waterfall and a greenhouse, all on an 0.83-acre (36,198-square-foot) property, according to public records and listing information.

Gelbart had owned the house since 1972, according to public records.

No photos are available online anywhere yet of Gelbart's house, although we'd expect that some will surface very, very soon. We'll keep you posted.
