The Los Angeles home of movie star Rhonda Fleming is currently on the market and priced at $10.995 million. The villa was the home of the actress for many years; public records put the last changing of hands at 1991, when ownership transferred in exchange for $2.5 million. The property hit the market initially in April of this year, about six months after Fleming’s death last year.
The 1980-built house is one of the Century Woods Estates residences. Its interior living spaces measure 9,604 sq. ft., with five bedrooms and at least five baths throughout. The living style is extraordinary; the great room features a soaring two-level ceiling, a greenhouse section, pastel tones, skylights, ornamental columns, a catwalk, and a cinematic mix of interior landscaping and trompe l’oeil vistas.
Other spaces in the ivy-covered home receive similarly individual treatments. The kitchen and dayroom are in beige, with heavy European-inspired treatment, skylights, and a fireplace. The master bedroom is enormous, and features a fireplace, a wet bar, and plentiful built-in shelving. Other bedrooms feature private balconies, and amenities include a spa, an upper floor terrace, and a courtyard with a pool.
Fleming was stopped on the street by a Hollywood agent at the tender age of 16 or 17 and signed to a contract without a screen test. The Queen of Technicolor was Ronald Reagan’s leading lady in 1951’s The Last Outpost.
