Gene Autry's Home, Estate of the Day
Earlier this week I mentioned the Roy Rogers auction but he's not the only cowboy singer whose belongings are being sold off. The LA Times Hot Property column reports that the Gene Autry estate, built by Autry in 1949 in Studio City, California, is now on the market for the first time. The property is still owned by his widow, Jacqueline Autry. The two-story five-bedroom Spanish-style main house is on 2.4 acres of land. The home has a family room with a western style wet bar, a library/media room with vintage walnut paneling and a breakfast room. The master suite has a fireplace, large closets and his and hers baths. Outside there is a guest house, swimming pool and an outdoor fireplace. The home is full of Western-style furnishing and works of art which can be bought for $200,000. Autry sang "Back in the Saddle Again" but is perhaps most famous for "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer." It is listed at $6.9 million with Barbara Robinson of Hilton & Hyland and Connie Nelson of Coldwell Banker, Studio City.
