The estate of romance novelist Jackie Collins is selling the fourth and last of the author’s properties, according to Variety. Collins, who sold a half-billion copies of her bodice-ripping novels during her lifetime, was nearly as prolific in the arena of real estate.
Collins’ four-bedroom home in Bel Air, CA, is listed for $4.95 million. Sitting on an acre of land, the 4,150-square-foot, ranch-style house has a formal entry, living room with vaulted ceiling and fireplace, wood-paneled study, and kitchen that opens to an entertainment area.
The master bedroom with fireplace has a walk-in closet and master bath with steam shower and his-and-her water closets.
The gated property features a brick courtyard, lushly landscaped backyard, and heated swimming pool.
It’s unclear if Collins ever lived in this property. But Variety says the property was available for rent in 2011 for $8,000 a month, and in 2016 for $18,000 a month.
Los Angeles has been awash in Collins-related real estate deals. Jackie’s 18,777-square-foot Beverly Hills mansion was sold last July for $21 million. Her older sister, Dame Joan Collins, recently listed her Sienna Towers condo in West Hollywood for $4.5 million.
Jackie Collins, author of “Hollywood Wives,” wrote 32 novels—all best-sellers—during her extraordinarily prolific career. She died in 2015 at age 77.
