Glen Campbell Sells His Malibu Mansion For $4.5 Million

He said his goodbye to his fans during his farewell tour last year, and now it seems that Glen Campbell is also saying goodbye to his Malibu mansion.

The 76-year-old American star, who publicly admitted to suffering from Alzheimer’s disease two years ago, has sold the LA home for $4.45 million, which is $1.5 million less than the original asking price.

The plush pad, which features four bedrooms and an outdoor swimming pool, was put on the market in 2011 and has finally sold, albeit for lower than expected.

Glen bought the Mediterranean-style mansion in 2005 for $3.425 million and had it re-modeled in 2009 before putting it up for sale just two years later.

Situated in a gated Malibu community, the house offers views of the Santa Monica Bay and Catalina Island, sitting on less than an acre and surrounded by palm and olive trees.

 

 

 

The singer and his fourth wife Kim Woolen lived together in the mansion, which boats four bedrooms, five and a half bedrooms, a billiard room, a cinema and a number of living rooms and spaces.

The outside area features an impressive swimming pool and spa as well as as an seating area arranged around a built-in fireplace.

The Rhinestone Cowboy singer toured the US last year in what was billed as his final tour, but was forced to cancel planned trips to Australia and New Zealand after his health worsened.

 

   

 

While announcing to his fans that he was suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease, he admitted that he sometimes found it difficult to remember the words to some of his most famous songs.

But the star had support from his children during his farewell tour as son Shannon and daughter Ashley joined him in his band on stage.

The hitmaker conducted an interview with Rolling Stone magazine last year, in which early signs of the disease were apparent.

Campbell appeared confused about his diagnosis at one point, saying, ‘I don’t feel any different at all. I haven’t been to the doctors where they said, ”You got Alzheimer’s”.

The magazine says that when his daughter Ashley reminds him that he has, in fact been diagnosed by doctors he replies: ‘Well, I guess I’ll wait till it hits me, then.’

He released a staggering 70 albums during his prolific career and became well known for his hits including Galveston, Wichita Lineman, and By the Time I Get to Phoenix.

Glen made another of his goodbyes at the Grammy Awards 2012 where he sang his classic hit Rhinestone Cowboy as a goodbye.
