Green Acres may have been the "place the be," at least according to the theme song, but when it came time to settle down, the star of the 1965–71 sitcom called Pacific Palisades home.
The tiny residential area is tucked between the ocean and the mountains in the northwest corner of Los Angeles. Eddie Albert lived there, inside the 4,818 square-foot house, for nearly half a century. The gorgeous elevated property offered stunning views of the surrounding peaks. Still, despite its location, Albert proved that "farm living was the life" for him. He grew corn in the front yard, according to a real estate report in the Los Angeles Times.
Albert passed away in 2005. Today, his former mansion is on the market. Virtually unchanged since it was constructed in 1933, the Hacienda-style home sports a price tag of $19,500,000. It is currently the home of landscape designer Jay Griffith.

Green Acres was the creation of Paul Henning, set inside the shared universe of Petticoat Junction and The Beverly Hillbillies. That world television comedy has proven to be fruitful for Los Angeles real estate of late. Think $19.5 million is a lot? The Hillbillies mansion was recently named the most expensive property listing in America, asking a whopping $350 million.
Better find that bubblin' crude.
