“Reagan’s Rancho House for Sale!”
So read the posting on the Web site of Michael Reagan, the eldest son of former President Ronald Reagan, who on May 20 sold the California home of his late mother, actress Jane Wyman, at the Rancho Mirage Country Club.
We read that Mr. Reagan inherited the three-bedroom, 2 1/2bath residence on Bob Hope Drive, one of the community’s original model homes, upon his mother’s death in September.
The single-level Montebello plan, which “boasts over 2,370 square feet of living space with soaring 20-foot ceilings and walls of glass that look out to the private pool and spa,” sold for about the $699,000 asking price, we’re told. Included in the purchase price was Mrs. Wyman’s complete bedroom set.
Upon her death last year, Mr. Reagan said, “I have lost a loving mother, my children have lost a loving grandmother, my wife has lost a loving friend she called ‘Mom,’ and Hollywood has lost the classiest lady to ever grace the silver screen.”
