Bea Arthur’s 2009 death left a void that few comedians have managed to fill, and her no-nonsense Golden Girls character Dorothy remains one of TV’s funniest roles two decades later. But seven years on from her passing, the sale of her former Los Angeles home offered a fascinating insight into how the star used to live. And this super-stylish $15 million pad really has to be seen to be believed.
The Brentwood, California mansion was purchased in 1980 after the end of Arthur’s marriage to director Gene Saks, and it would serve as her home for almost 30 years. And while it’s hard not to think back to the on-screen abode she shared with Blanche, Rose and Sophia, we can certainly see Arthur being comfortable here, too.
