They say that people who have lived their lives well go to heaven after they pass away. Ironically, the recently departed actor Larry Hagman apparently left a piece of heaven behind when he died.
Hagman was a television legend, and he was actually a relatively early pioneer. He costarred with Barbara Eden on the 1960s situation comedy I Dream of Jeannie.
Though Hagman certainly made his mark playing the role of Capt. and then Major Anthony Nelson on the somewhat otherworldly sitcom he went on to play the serious role of J.R. Ewing on the wildly popular dramatic series Dallas.
Though Ewing was anything but likable, Hagman was indeed an affable character in real life according to those who were close to him.
Reports about the details of the Hagman estate have been slow to surface, but we do know that he left behind an extraordinary piece of real estate. Hagman and his wife Maj spent much of their time in Ojai, California enjoying the home that they affectionately dubbed “Heaven.”
This property overlooks the Pacific Ocean, and it includes an avocado orchard. It is a seven bedroom villa that has room for five cars in the garage and 10 bathrooms.
If you ever wanted to own a slice of heaven yourself, the piece of property that Larry Hagman left behind was listed on the market for $6.5 million.
Larry Hagman will certainly be missed, but his legacy will live on in the form of his work.
