Farrah Fawcett’s former Bel Air home is on the market for $6.4 million. It comes with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths and a little piece of Hollywood history (how fun would it be to say, “Farrah lived here”?).
Thanks to her famous turn as Jill Munroe on “Charlie’s Angels” in the ’70s, a lot of us wanted to have hair like hers. I’d be happy to show you my own pitiful attempt at mimicking her feathered ‘do in the ’80s, but I seem to have mysteriously lost all those photos. Darn. Otherwise, I would post them. For sure.
According to Big Time Listings, Farrah sold the house in ’99, and it was on the market again in 2008 for $4.1 million.
The listing says: “Walking through the doors you are drawn to panoramic city, canyon, mountain & reservoir views that can be seen through large picture windows & sliding glass doors.”
The house looks like a blank slate ready for the next owner to put their mark on it.
Farrah was diagnosed with cancer in 2006 and died in June of ’09 when she was 62. Michael Jackson died hours later, which totally stole her thunder (and many of the newspaper and magazine covers she would have been on otherwise).
Did you know she was born Ferrah Leni Fawcett–a name her mother made up because she thought it sounded good? She later changed the spelling.
In other Farrah trivia, her first TV appearance was on “I Dream of Jeannie” in ’68. I loved that show. I wanted to marry Major Nelson when I grew up (but sadly, it didn’t work out). You can see my post about Larry Hagman’s house–which happens to be the largest solar-powered residence in the U.S.–here.
