Nov. 15: Peek inside Ed Asner's 'traditional retreat' on his 84th birthday

Jennifer Karmon

Actor Ed Asner -- born on this day in 1929 -- has been a busy guy, as Zillow notes. But he appears to be taking at least one task off his plate: A sale is pending on his "gated traditional retreat" in the Studio City area of Los Angeles.

Offered at $1,299,000, the home is "tastefully accented by leaded glass doors/windows and brass hardware," according to the listing. It was built in 1954 and has three bedrooms and three bathrooms -- including a "self-contained Grand Master Bedroom" -- in 2,783 square feet.

We suspect that the word "traditional" is at least partly code for "dated." As you'll see in the photos, the kitchen and two of the bathrooms are pretty heavily wallpapered (or, we suppose, stenciled).
