Bea Arthur Estate on the Market for First Time Since 1970s

Bea Arthur’s Sullivan Canyon home in Brentwood, California, is on the market for the first time since the 1970s with a $16 million price tag.

The Spanish-style estate contains five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a dining room, library, media room, gourmet kitchen, pool, gym, and a tennis court. There are also hiking trails and waterfalls on the four-acre property that the "Golden Girls" actress lived in from 1975 until her death in 2009, according to Inquisitr. The house was built in 1924 and designed by Cliff May, who's reportedly known as “the father of the California Ranch Home."

Emmy Award-winner Arthur bought the property after divorcing her Broadway director husband, Gene Saks. In a 1998 interview with A&U Magazine, the star talked about her home.

“This is country out here . . . I can walk around without anything on and nobody cares, and it's just lovely,” she said, according to Los Angeles Curbed.

Matt Saks, Arthur’s son, inherited his mother’s estate after she died of lung cancer at the age of 86. Saks renovated parts of the house and, in 2011, put it up for rent, though the exact rent price is speculative.

The actress is famous for her 1985-1992 role as Dorothy on the television show "The Golden Girls" and for her 1972-1978 role on "Maude," both of which she won Emmys for. In 1966, Arthur won a Tony Award for the film "Mame" with Lucille Ball. Prior to her Hollywood career, Arthur was a typist in the U.S. Marine Corps in World War II.

Arthur’s estate is not the only celebrity home on the market. Eddie Murphy’s Granite Bay, California, mansion is on the market for $11 million and Elton John’s former London penthouse is selling for $6.8 million, The Telegraph noted.
