Golden Age Hollywood actress Bette Davis's onetime Laguna beach home has recently hit the market for just shy of $20 million. The esteemed actress was the winner of two academy awards and was well-known for her roles in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? and Jezebel. And her home is certainly fit for Hollywood royalty: Built in the style of a home in France's Normandy region, the estate boasts a private courtyard entrance and sweeping views of the ocean.
There's also a guest house entrance and dining terrace, which both are great for catching a view of the Pacific coastline below. The property boasts 6 bedrooms and 8 baths, making it an ideal spot for hosting. The primary bedroom has Carrara marble, heated floors, and connects to its own private terrace.
In the kitchen, an eating nook has been updated to feature top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances. Additional amenities in the home include a wine cellar, gym, media room, and bar area—but the property retains some French country charm thanks to rustic wood beam ceilings and a cedar shingle roof. The property last sold for $13.5 million in 2004. The listing is currently headed by John Mccain of Pacific Sotheby's International Realty.
