The former Los Angeles-area mansion of actress and international sex symbol Raquel Welch was relisted Thursday for $5.695 million.
The six-bedroom home in Beverly Hills Post Office was Ms. Welch’s home for nearly a decade and in recent years has come on and off the market, priced at one point for nearly $7 million, listing records show.
Ms. Welch, 76, became an icon in the 1960s and ’70s for her roles as sexy, but strong heroines. One of the most well-known images of her is in a doeskin bikini for the film “One Million Years B.C.,” one of many scantily clad portrayals of the star.
In 1998, Playboy ranked Ms. Welch No. 3 in its “Sexiest Stars of the Twentieth Century” list, and Men’s Health awarded her No. 2 in its 2011 “Hottest Women of All Time.”
The Hollywood siren bought the 6,000-square-foot Mediterranean-style villa in 1997 through her longtime financial adviser for $2 million, according to property records. A year later, she set to work updating the property, last renovated in 1998, records show.
Ms. Welch owned the property for eight years until 2005, when she sold it to Dr. Robert Rey, the star of E!’s plastic surgery reality show “Dr. 90210,” and his family, according to property records. She now lives in a different red-clay roofed mansion about eight miles away in Beverly Crest.
Today, the gated estate opens into a double-height entry with a grand staircase. The grand master bedroom has two separate bathrooms and walk-in closets, a sitting area with a fireplace and direct access to the yard and pool, according to the listing with Boni Bryant of Sotheby’s International Realty. Ms. Bryant declined to comment on the property.
The grounds also have a separate guesthouse, a large pool, spa and grassy yard. Part of the five-car garage at the front of the home has been converted into a gym with elevator access to the main living levels, according to the listing.
The sellers could not be reached for comment.
