Get your macho on for a home once owned by America’s ultimate tough-guy, John Wayne. Listed for $2,263,000, you’ll see that the home is far from macho, if it ever was.

Described as “Versailles style” by Lansner on Real Estate, Wayne’s former Newport Beach, CA home offers 4,448-sq ft of living space and sits on the 4th tee, overlooking Big Canyon Golf Course.

The listing description is as follows: “Enter through a gate into the front courtyard with a fountain and walk through double glass doors into an elegant entryway and light-filled formal spaces. The two-story living room has floor-to-ceiling windows, parquet floors, marble fireplace, and custom artwork. The newly remodeled kitchen features a center island, double ovens and butler’s pantry with secret passage. The formal dining room opens to the garden and is graced by a custom console designed by John Wayne himself. Three fireplaces, a master suite, dark wood paneled den and maid’s room are on the main floor. On the second level there is a balcony and two bedroom suites with spa baths. The pool spa and gazebo are surrounded by lush gardens. Overlooking the Big Canyon golf course this sophisticated home offers complete privacy and unobstructed panoramic views.”

This home has had two owners since Wayne; the last sale was in 1998, for $895,000.

It’s amazing that in all of the years since Wayne’s death in 1979, his popularity has not waned. As recently as 2008, Wayne placed third in a Harris poll as one of “America’s favorite film stars,” even though he made his last film in 1976. See more celebrity real estate news.
