Hollywood’s Golden Era Stars Who Live in Houses More Luxurious Than Any A-List Celebrity

Some of these legendary artists might have fallen a bit under the radar or they might be starring in the next blockbuster movie! What we know for sure is that even if their debuts and career heydays took place decades ago, they are still alive and kicking. And with more than enough money earned throughout their successful careers, their retirement planning probably went smoothly. And judging by some of the houses these stars have, it would certainly appear so! Let’s take a look at the places where these never-forgotten stars are comfortably enjoying their golden years.

Brigitte Bardot – $5.6 Million, South of France

Brigitte Bardot, who was one of the symbols of the ‘60s, is known for her impressive beauty as well as for her activism. Considering her successful career as an actress, it’s no wonder she could afford this incredible house located in the South of France. Although she invested a lot of time in the remodeling of this home, which has a guest house and an infinity swimming pool, she decided to put it for sale. Listed at $5.6 million, the house’s sale certainly meant nice earnings for the Viva Maria! actress who has dedicated herself entirely to her activism focused on rescuing animals in the last decades.

Harry Belafonte – $2.9 Million, New York

Harry Belafonte has had a very successful career in music; earning him the moniker, King of Calypso. He also used to be the owner of this beautiful and homey colonial home located in the state of New York. Belafonte, who just turned 90, made a sound investment in this place which boasts a huge fireplace, a guest house, as well as its own pond. It definitely sounds like the perfect vacation spot! Harry has been a very outspoken activist for Civil Rights and was one of Martin Luther King Jr.’s closest friends. He has been involved in the organization of the 2017 Women’s March that took place in Washington, D.C.

Gene Hackman – $27 Million, Monterrey

Gene Hackman’s former home was sold for $27 million and it is the newest acquisition of venture investor, Andrew M. Paul. The house used to be part of a larger compound created by Carl Panattoni who bought it directly from Hackman. Gene, who announced his retirement from acting in 2008, famously played the role of Lex Luthor in 1978’s Superman: The Movie and also won an Academy Award as Best Actor for his role in 1971’s The French Connection. Even though it is no longer part of the greater compound, the property is still about 2.37 acres large and has a beautiful view of the ocean—which highly increases its worth.
