One of Farrah Fawcett’s former Bel Air properties is on the market for $6.4 million. It comes with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths and a little piece of Hollywood history. 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. Otherwise, I would show you.
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.”
A reader named Thomas tells me she bought it as a guest house when she was married to Lee Majors and living next door at 3130 Antelo Road: “After the 1994 Northridge earthquake her home was red tagged and she moved into this home until she sold both and moved into a Wishire Corridor condo.” (BTW, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon now own the main house next door.)
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.
She was diagnosed with cancer in 2006 and died in June of ’09 when she was only 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).
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 for some reason it didn’t work out for the two of us). You can see my post about Larry Hagman’s house–which happens to be the largest solar-powered residence in the U.S.–here.
