The former home of the late Jack Klugman, a character actor from 1950 to 2012, has hit the market in Woodland Hills asking $1,199,000. Klugman is best remembered for his roles in 12 Angry Men (1957), Cry Terror! (1958), The Twilight Zone (1960 - 1963), The Odd Couple (1970 - 1975) and more than 400 appearances. Klugman passed away on December 24, 2012 at the young age of 90 from prostate cancer.
Klugman did not technically own this home but it belongs to his second wife Peggy Crosby who was his longtime girlfriend since 1988. The eventually married in 2008 at the Little Brown Church in the Valley located at 4418 Coldwater Canyon Ave. The Crosby name might ring a bell and if you were thinking about Bing Crosby, then you are correct as there is actually a connection. Peggy is the ex-wife of Phillip Crosby who is the son of Bing Crosby who sang the San Fernando Valley song and was a longtime Toluca Lake resident. Yes, its a small world.
The home measures 4 Beds/3 Baths on 2,848 sqft on a total lot size of 0.29 acres built in 1966. The listing description states:

Peggy purchased this property on April 1, 1999 for $574,000 and is looking to double her money not factoring expenses with this sale. Its possible Peggy owned or currently owns another Woodland Hills home but I cannot confirm. Not sure why Klugman wasnt an owner but a few sources show he may have owned or rented a Malibu condo on PCH during the 90's but I cannot confirm. Below is a video of Klugman from 12 Angry Men.
