Hollywood filmmaker Ron Howard’s former Encino home has relisted at $3.695 million, nearly five years after it fell off the market.

Designed by architect Robert Byrd in 1979 and newly updated, the 5,900-square-foot house has five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and an open floor plan that connects the kitchen to the dining and family rooms.

The bathrooms adjoin each bedroom, including the master suite whose master bathroom has a freestanding tub and circular walk-in shower.

In the attached one-bedroom guest house, there’s a living room and kitchen.

Wood-beamed ceilings and brick walls feature heavily in the all-white interior of the house, which sprawls across more than half an acre of lush grounds on Encino Avenue surrounded by mature oaks and pines.

The property has a pool and spa, outdoor fireplace and plenty of patio and lawn space for entertaining.

Joshua Altman and Matthew J. Altman of Douglas Elliman share the listing.

Property records show Howard, “The Andy Griffith Show” child actor turned Oscar-winning “A Beautiful Mind” filmmaker, owned the home from 1983 to 1986.

Howard has created a number of memorable TV shows and films, from dramas to comedies, in his long career. He most recently directed the documentary “Pavarotti” about the life and career of the tenor.

At the time he owned the house he had directed “Splash” and “Cocoon.” According to the MLS, it sold in 1986 for $808,000.

The house has been on and off the market since January 2009 when it listed at $3.699 million, dropping as low as $2,999,999 in June 2014. It relisted Aug. 6 at slightly less than its initial asking price.

Byrd designed many homes in Los Angeles County, including the residence on Cielo Drive where, in 1969, the Charles Manson “family” murdered Sharon Tate, who was 8½ months pregnant, and her four guests.
