Somewhere over the rainbow, iconic actress and singer, Judy Garland, once spent her time away from the Hollywood limelight, in this cozy 2.5-acre Bel Air, CA estate. Built in 1938, the same year she was cast in “The Wizard of Oz,” renowned California architect, Wallace Neff, was hired to design this property for Ms. Garland. And now, Garland’s former home is now for sale for $5.5 million.

According to Curbed LA, Garland shared the home with her sister, mother, and grandmother. The listing information notes that since the actress lived there, other Tinseltown celebrities, including Quincy Jones and Marvin Gaye, have also called it home.

Garland’s former home is located on Stone Canyon Road, an admired street tucked inside a more traditional suburb of Bel Air, away from many of the swanky mansions typically seen in the world of celebrity and Los Angeles real estate. The 5,513-sq ft main house boasts 5 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, a cook’s kitchen that looks out to the garden, an office, library, and spacious formal dining and living areas, perfect for entertaining. Also included on the property is a private, meticulously landscaped backyard with an outdoor pool, separate cabanas, and an original “writer’s” cabin.

Though most remembered for her performance as “Dorothy,” Judy Garland (born Frances Ethel Gumm) had a career that spanned 45 years of her short, 47-year-old life. She earned an Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, several Grammy Awards, Special Tony Award, was posthumously awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and is easily regarded as one of the greatest female stars in the history of America’s entertainment industry.
