Forbes is reporting that Bea Arthur’s former mansion in the Brentwood neighborhood of LA has sold for $15 million. Which begs the important question: How much cheesecake does that get you?
From the Forbes story, the 5-bedroom Spanish-style mansion was built in 1924. The home offers many amenities essential to day-to-day domestic life, like striking views, an enviable kitchen, and a pool landscaped with waterfalls. Arthur bought the home in 1980 for $550,500; it sold for $14.925 million.
The article makes no mention of the home’s lanai or its furniture.
