Glenn Close Lists Longtime New York Farmhouse (Exclusive)

Located about an hour north of Manhattan in the quiet, cozy town of Bedford Hills, New York, Glenn Close has called her gorgeous farmhouse home for nearly 30 years. Her mom, socialite Bettine Close who passed in 2015, is also listed as a resident, but as seen on Glenn’s Instagram (which is legendary!), she spends a lot of time there. However, it seems she may have had enough as she just listed the property for $3.6 million.

The home, built in 1910, sits on 10.67 acres of lush green land completely surrounded by trees that provide lots of privacy and protect the property from prying eyes. Inside, the home boasts 5,773 square feet of living space, 4 spacious bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, 5 fireplaces, a spacious kitchen with glass-front cabinetry and marble countertops, and hardwood floors throughout. Outside, you can soak up the sun and enjoy the sprawling green landscapes from the deck or enjoy a soak in the shoreline pool or detached spa.

In addition to the main home, there is also a guest cottage on the grounds as well as a barn/garage that features both a gym and office. There’s even a cute little playhouse on the property complete with its own sleeping loft!

After deciding to part ways with this beautiful abode, Close listed the home on June 3, 2019, for a hefty but reasonable $3.6 million – not bad when you consider what you’d be getting for your buck. So, if you have a few million or so laying around, consider throwing your name into the likely ever-growing list of potential buyers for this stunning property.

Glenn Close House Bedford NY

For many years, this wasn’t her only home in New York State. In Septemeber 2006 she dropped $6,025,000 on a 19th-floor condo in Manhattan’s The Beresford, an iconic building on Central Park West. She sold the 2,300 unit four years later in August 2010 for $10,200,000. Not a bad return!

As for where she’s moving next, there’s no sure sign of her a new home, but if I had to guess, the beloved star may be looking for something in the city that requires less upkeep. Plus, she’s single and needs that nightlife! Just a guess.

Glenn Close Net Worth

The 71-year-old actress has done pretty well for herself in the span of her career, starring in box office hits like Fatal Attraction, for example, which grossed over $320 million when it hit theaters back in 1987.

Currently, Glenn Close’s net worth sits at a cool $60 million, a number which is only expected to increase with time given the actress recent comments on the award circuit declaring she has no plan for retiring. Watch out, youngins!

Who is Glenn Close?

The American singer, producer, and actress has been gracing us with her powerful presence both on stage, television, and the silver screen for nearly five decades now, making her professional theater debut in Love Is Love back in 1974, and then continuing to lend her talents to the stages of New York until making her film debut in the comedy-drama The World According to Garp opposite Robin Williams in 1982. Her debut role, along with the two other supporting roles that followed in the films The Big Chill (1983) and the sports drama The Natural (1984), would earn her not one, but three Academy Award nominations for Best Supporting Actress. Though she didn’t actually take home any awards (even though she should have!), it’s pretty impressive that her talents as an actress were already gaining recognition so early in the actresses’ career on the big screen, and it didn’t take long for this recognition to skyrocket the star to an international household name.

And if I had to pick a favorite, Cruella de Vil “Dalmations” Glenn Close is ICONIC!

Glenn Close Spouse

Glenn Close has had her fair share of relationship woes over the years. The star has been married four times, all of which have ended in divorce. Her first marriage, which Close has described as “kind of an arranged marriage”, was to musician Cabot Wade in 1969 when the actress was 22 and the couple was part of the same musical troupe. Her relationship to Wade would last for only two years before the pair called it quits. In 1984, she would marry businessman James Marlas. Much like her previous marriage, however, the wedding bliss would be short-lived, and the couple would divorce three years later.

Following the end of her second marriage, Close would begin a serious relationship with producer John H. Starke, and the couple would give birth to a baby girl, named Annie, in 1988 before separating sometime in the early 90s. Despite the breakup, however, the pair remain friends to this day. Several short-lived relationships later, the star would get engaged to stage carpenter, Steve Beers, in 1995, but the pair would head straight to splitsville in 1999 without ever actually tying the knot.

Finally, in 2006, Glenn would wed husband #4, a businessman by the name of David Evan Shaw. Close and Shaw were married until 2015 when the couple announced to friends and the press that they had decided to call it quits after 9 years of marriage.

As of 2019, Glen Close is enjoying the single life and spends the vast majority of her time, when she’s not working, with her beloved puppers, a Maltese by the name of Sir Pip. Omg, that name is adorable! Am I the only one imaging Sir Pip in a suit and top hat with a little monocle? Okay, I’ll stop being weird now, but that is seriously adorable!
