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.

Barbi Benton – $11.9 Million Los Angeles, CA

Here’s a mansion that was put on the market for a new owner in 2011. It belonged to former actress-singer, Barbi Benton, and her husband, mobile park businessman George Gradow. Located in the hills above Bel-Air in LA, the place was off and on the market for a while. The initial price listed in 2011 was $11.95M for the estate, whose main house was 11,608-square-foot big, with 11 bathrooms and four bedrooms. Barbi is known for having modeled for the most popular men’s magazine, who took revealing photos of her, and for appearing in shows like The Love Boat and Fantasy Island. Benton’s wealth in 2019 is estimated at $22M.

Dolly Parton – $1.2 Million, Nashville

The property that celebrity singer Dolly Parton once called home with her spouse, Carl Dean, was again listed for sale in 2017. The price for the 4,795-square-foot stucco structure with four bedrooms and three bathrooms was $1.2 million. Its total acreage is 2.4 while its location is in Nashville, in the area of Glenville. It was constructed in 1941, and from ’80 to ’96, the couple lived there. Included among the amenities of the mansion are walk-in closets, a homey kitchen, covered patios, an outbuilding, and a garage for four vehicles. Parton was inducted into the Happiness Hall of Fame in 2016.

Wesley Snipes – $4.125 Million, New Jersey

Despite his tax evasion legal issues, we’re glad to see Wesley Snipes currently back on his feet and acting again. Just within 2020 he played in Paper Empire and Coming 2 America! Right now he’s worth merely $10 million and this right here is the place he used to call home. He and his wife, Nakyung Park, sold this white mansion in Alpine, New Jersey, back in 2014 for just $4.125 million. The property is surrounded by acres of greenery while boasting enough room to house their family of six. It boasts several different floors, and a driveway leading to the front door.

John Wayne – Undisclosed Price, California

For the last couple of decades of his life, John Wayne lived in Newport Beach. He had settled down with his wife, Pilar Pallete, in this beautiful house there. They had furnished it so wonderfully, that it even made the Architectural Digest magazine in the ‘70s! The house had a stone wood-burning fireplace in the main room and was decorated with memorabilia from his films like True Grit and Stagecoach. His favorite room was the library-office, where he spent most of his alone-time. Though we can’t know its current price, it’s safe to say that it was pricey, given John’s $50-million net worth at the time of his death.
