The character voiced by Ed Asner in Pixar’s animated feature “Up” refused to let go of his lifelong house. But the Emmy-winning actor did part recently with his real-life home in Studio City, Calif.

The traditional-style home sold for $1.3 million.

Used brick, leaded glass, exposed-beam ceilings, brass hardware and French doors are among the charms in the 2,783-square-foot home. Living space includes living and family rooms, an office, three bedrooms and three bathrooms.

A self-contained master suite features a sitting area, a fireplace, another office and a walk-in closet.

Brick steps lead from the back of the home to a sunny patio and a swimming pool with a spa.

Asner, 84, is a past president of the Screen Actors Guild. He played Lou Grant in the 1970s sitcom “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and in “Lou Grant,” a spinoff drama set at a newspaper.

Asner bought the property in 1996 for $540,000, public records show.
