Kirk Douglas’ last longtime home to sell for $ 7.5 million
Kirk and Anne Douglas’ longtime home, where they would take their last breath, is up for sale for $ 7.5 million.
The four-bedroom, six-bathroom Beverly Hills property was purchased by the Hollywood Legends in 1976 for $ 400,000.
Rochelle Altas Maize of Nourmand & Associates, who represents the list, told Mansion Global the two lived in the house until their deaths. Kirk died in 2020 at the age of 103 and Anne died this year at the age of 102. The couple had been married for over 65 years.
Relatively modest, the estate spans just over a third of an acre surrounded by mature trees and gardens.
The estate consists of a 4,648 square foot one-story main house and a two-story guesthouse.
Perhaps the most striking feature of the house is the Walk of Fame backyard, which Maize called “iconic and special.”
âThey entertained a lot and I was told Kirk would ask people to sign cement pavers at dinner parties,â Maize revealed. âThere are 22 stones – some came from their old property. It’s like the Hollywood Walk of Fame at Grauman’s Chinese Theater on steroids.
Some of the stars included Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Ronald Reagan, Lucille Ball, Elizabeth Taylor and Barbra Streisand.
Other features of the house include a pantry that opens to a gourmet kitchen, a breakfast bar and bedrooms with private bathrooms.
Large sliding glass doors “create a seamless indoor / outdoor feel,” the listing says. The exterior houses a resort-style swimming pool and spa.
âI appraised it at the value of the land,â Maize said. âAnd nothing in Beverly Hills that’s great sells for less than $ 9 million. We are accepting offers from Monday, and I expect to get 15 or more and they will sell significantly above the asking price. “
Douglas appeared in over 90 films during his career, receiving an Academy Honorary Lifetime Achievement Award in 1996.
For his philanthropic work, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom under President Jimmy Carter in 1981.
