Hot Property: It was once Archie Bunker's place [Los Angeles Times :: BC-HOME-HOTPROPERTY:LA]

LOS ANGELES_The former Malibu home of late actor Carroll O'Connor and documentary producer Nancy Fields O'Connor is back up for sale with a fresh new look. It's offered as a pocket listing, with an asking price in the $20-million range.

The beachfront house, which sits on a narrow lot on Broad Beach, was owned by the O'Connors for more than 30 years until it sold two years ago for $9.3 million. After the sale, the Moorish-vibe house underwent a down-to-the-studs renovation by noted architect-designer Michael Lee that was completed this year.

Among new details are black-paneled doors and windows, wide-plank wood floors and a reimagined kitchen. All of the four bedrooms now have end suite bathrooms, including two "cabana rooms" that open to a brightly tiled courtyard and swimming pool.

The detached garage has been modernized with storefront glass, Tesla charging stations and a battery backup system. Smart-home and solar energy systems are installed throughout the house. Outdoors, a Saltillo-tiled loggia opens to a large patio space. A large swath of sandy, palm-topped beach leads directly to the shoreline.

Carroll O'Connor, who died in 2001 at 76, won multiple Emmys for his role as Archie Bunker on "All in the Family." He also starred in the spinoff series "Archie Bunker's Place" and, starting in the late 1980s, the crime drama "In the Heat of the Night."

Nancy Fields O'Connor, who died in 2014 at 84, was a documentary filmmaker and author.
