Hirsch puts his home up for sale

(ran HP, HH editions)

Actor Judd Hirsch, who lives mainly in New York, has put his 2-acre Los Angeles-area home on the market at $795,000.

The Emmy- and Tony Award-winning actor, who starred in the TV series Taxi and Dear John, appeared in such films as Running on Empty (1988) and Ordinary People (1980).

Hirsch, 58, was starring on Broadway in the hit play Conversations With My Father when he was married last Christmas Eve to his longtime friend Bonnie Chalkin.

He has lived in a two-bedroom house that he built on the Los Angeles property since 1979. Hirsch also did much of the work on an 18-foot-high, five-level waterfall there. A second, two-bedroom house on the lot dates back to the 1920s.

Hirsch has also listed an adjacent half-acre property, with a two-bedroom house, at $450,000. He has owned that home since 1984, when he bought it so he would have more land.
