Built in 1924, the Spanish-style mansion owned by Golden Girls star Bea Arthur is nestled among spectacular oak and sycamore trees in a highly desirable section of Brentwood in Los Angeles. The five-bed, six-bath home is a 7,000-square-foot beauty originally designed by Cliff May and sold for $14.925 million.
The home features a spacious living room with beamed ceilings and a formal dining room. A master suite includes a luxurious bath and walk-in closet, with four additional bedrooms, each part of its own suite. (Perfect for Rose, Sophia, and Blanche!) A media room offers a great space for family movie nights. A gourmet kitchen leads into palatial grounds, which feature a resort-style pool, spa, tennis court, manicured hiking trails, and waterfalls.
Views of the canyon, mountains, and palm trees of Los Angeles make this beauty the perfect place to live out one’s Golden years in true Hollywood style. And clearly, Arthur did just that: She bought the home in 1980 for the bargain price of $550,500.
Arthur, known for her role as the sassy senior citizen Dorothy Zbornak, passed away in 2009 at the age of 86.
