Rue McClanahan has been gone since 2010, but you have a shot at reconnecting with her if you'd like to purchase her old home for a cool $5.5 million.
Apartment Therapy reports:
A shock to no one who loved her most beloved character and hot ticket, the property was built and designed in 1951 by the same architect who built the Playboy Mansion, Arthur Kelly. But, as others have reported (with mixed emotions from this writer), the home's interiors were recently redesigned by Nick Berman. (Just imagine all the Millennial pink of the original!)
According to the listing for 16001 Woodvale Road, McClanahan's one-time estate is a 2.61-acre gated property featuring a single-story Country Colonial-style home with four bedrooms and six bathrooms, all the swoon-worthy indoor and outdoor entertaining and living spaces you'd expect from the gregarious actress, including a grotto-esque pool and spa and near-epic mature gardens, plus some more family-oriented features like a full basketball court, children's playground, large dog kennels with matching dog run — even an indoor 11' x 10' "dog house" just off the garage — and separate "family wing."
The 5,368 square feet interior also boasts a music room, maid's quarters, service rooms, skylit dining room, gym, theater, mud room, office, "sumptuous living room with walk-in bar" and "superb family kitchen."
The "lushly landscaped exterior, a cross between a botanical garden and a national forest, highlights the custom waterfall/creek running from the western edge of the property, past the gazebo, to the rock-rimmed swimming pool," according to the realtor, "with numerous gardens [that] feature paved walking paths through the hills, meditation benches, a cactus garden [and] an outdoor kitchen." The master suite also features a private patio and spa.
I wonder if Rue's spirit inhabits the home, Grammy-style?
