Inside Carol Burnett’s Former Santa Fe Compound and Where the Star Lives Today
Carol Burnett is a legendary comedian and actor who has had an impressive career spanning over six decades. She has also owned some impressive real estate. In fact, one of her former properties was featured on the cover of Architectural Digest. That estate is now for sale.
Here’s a look inside the compound Burnett once called home and how much it’s selling for.
Carol Burnett’s Santa Fe home can be yours for a few million
In 1996, Burnett’s home located on 120 Circle Drive & Tract B in Santa Fe, New Mexico, earned the cover of the December issue Architectural Digest.
The 9,567-square-foot house is two stories and sits on eight acres. It has seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms in the main house. There’s also a 2-bedroom gatehouse on the property.
The compound has a game room with a fireplace as does the master suite. The bedroom has dual bathrooms as well, walk-in closets, and built-in seating by the window. The outdoor space boasts a bar, a dining area, a putting green, a hard-surface outdoor recreation area, and a swimming pool with a cabana. In addition, there is a rooftop deck that offers stunning mountain views.
Burnett’s former estate was listed by Sotheby’s International Realty and can be yours for $6.2 million.
Where Burnett and her husband live
Burnett no longer lives in New Mexico. Today, she resides in Santa Barbara with her husband, musician Brian Miller.
The star spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about how her day-to-day life has changed during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic lockdowns.
“We live in a gated community and it’s possible for us to go out, take a walk and any neighbors we see, we wave and social distance,” Burnett said. “When some of our friends go for walks, they call us to say they’re in the neighborhood. We open the door and have a meeting on the driveway with everyone standing six feet apart. It’s so nice to see other human beings but, you know, it’s a shame we can’t hug them. We’re thinking of bringing some lawn furniture out to put it in the driveway and just have people sit and talk six feet apart.”
She added that for her the hardest part of all this is “not being able to socialize and see my family, that’s tough, but we keep in touch. I talk to my sister and my kids almost every day and everybody’s doing as well as can be expected. I think back to World War II and even 9/11, we could all bond together. I was in New York right after 9/11 and we’d be on the street and you’d see a stranger and just give each other a hug. We can’t do that now.”
So for her post-pandemic plans, Burnett told AARP she wants to: “Throw a great big party for our friends. Everybody gets back together so we can have a group hug.”
