A Spoon Full of Sugar Will Help Julie Andrews Sell (Her Brentwood Home)

Syndicated — What's the best word to describe Julie Andrews' home?

Lovely? Gracious? Elegant?

How about a word the actress embedded into our collective consciousness: "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"

The home of the actress who gave us some of the most iconic characters in movie history owned the home with her late husband, Blake Edwards, and it has hit the Brentwood real estate market for $2.649 million. According to property records, the pair purchased the home in 1999 for $1,365,000.

Best known for her popular roles in "Mary Poppins" and "The Sound of Music," Andrews first received recognition on Broadway as Eliza Doolittle in "My Fair Lady." Her husband was a director and screenwriter and earned his own accolades for his work on another pair of enduring Hollywood favorites "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and "The Pink Panther" series.

The 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom home was built in 1948. Spanning 2,574 square feet on just under a quarter-acre, the home is a traditional celebrity property with gates and walls for privacy. According to the listing, one of the home's best features is its gardens designed by landscape designer Nancy Power.

The home also features a pool and spa and artists' studio with separate entrance. Like many celebrities, it appears the home is being marketed quietly. Although the home's address is listed, only one photo of the garden has been released. Here it is:

Gary Glass of Prudential California Realty is the listing agent for the home.
