The long-time home of the late Bea Arthur, Emmy-award-winning star of The Golden Girls and Maude, sold late last month after a only a bit over a month on the market. The nearly-four-acre spread in what Arthur herself described as "country" surroundings (Brentwood's Sullivan Canyon) was originally built in 1924, designed by architect Cliff May, but was heartily renovated in the mid-2000s by Arthur's son, Matt Saks. The five-bedroom, six-bathroom house measures more than 7,000 square feet, and the property includes its own hiking trails and waterfalls.
Arthur lived here from 1975 until her death in 2009. The house, owned by a trust in Arthur's name, was up for rent a few years ago (for $60,000 a month!) and was put up for sale in late June for $15.995 million. It sold at the end of July for $14.925 million.
