Kenny Rogers was a true legend in the country music industry. He also dabbled in flipping real estate. That appeared to be a lucrative direction, as his former Bel-Air home in Los Angeles, CA sold recently for $46.25 million.
Unfortunately, Rogers passed away not long ago on March 20, 2020, at the age of 81. His songs still grace the airwaves and certainly still often get stuck in my head. This recently sold home spans 24,000 square feet and sits on 1.62 acres of land.

This massive estate is truly a sight to see. Not only is it huge, but it also has such high-class additions such as a glass elevator, a ballroom, movie theater, gym, tennis court, pool, spa, and parking for 25 cars. The home has 11 bedrooms, including a primary suite that spans 3,000 square feet, and 17 bathrooms. The main gate of the estate is guarded by two lion statues, hence the name Liongate.
The main entrance of the home is grand with nice planters that hold trees and shrubs. The foyer includes a black grand piano, plenty of bright white walls, and a magnificent staircase. The living room is glamorous, with pillars and large windows for plenty of natural light. A kitchen with two large islands makes entertaining a breeze.
The kitchen and primary bedroom are adorned with coffered ceilings. A chandelier and sitting area round out the large primary bedroom. The primary bath offers an enclosed glass shower area, stand-alone bathtub, and plenty of room to get ready for the day.
A game room with a billiard table and a wet bar with five stools are favorites when having guests over. Work can be done in the library, which offers dark wood tones for walls and bookshelves and a coffered ceiling. The grounds around the property are nicely kept. Find two fountains, a spa, and pool, a newly built guest house, and a tennis court. There are many nice places available for outdoor entertaining.
Kenny Rogers owned this home, which was originally built in 1938, years ago. When Rogers lived there, it was only 9,359 square feet. New owners enlarged the home in 2013. The newest buyers are Jim and Eleanor Randall. Randall owns Allfast Fastening Systems, which has its headquarters in the City of Industry, CA.
Kenny Rogers had a very successful career that spanned six decades. He has sold over 120 albums all over the world and is one of the best selling male artists of all time. He is a GRAMMY® award-winning artist and recorded 24 number one hits. In addition to his success in the music industry, he flipped many houses. Most of them were in Georgia, but he also owned several properties in California. He is sorely missed in the real estate and country music industry.
