Dallas’ Linda Gray puts Californian ranch up for sale


Dallas’ Linda Gray puts Californian ranch up for sale

The star’s long-time California ranch is featured this week at

Linda Gray, Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated actress, well known as Sue Ellen Ewing, the vodka-tipsy wife of Larry Hagman’s character, J.R. Ewing, in the long-running television soap opera Dallas, is selling her much-loved Santa Clarita, California ranch where she has lived for almost 50 years. It is priced at $2.995 million.

Gray has had a long career in the public eye after recovering from polio as a child. She started with modelling in the 1960s before starring in a significant number of  television commercials. She was the body double for Anne Bancroft in The Graduate with her legs being used in the title picture.  She also played the part of Mrs. Robinson in the stage-play version both in London and New York.

She had parts in the television series Melrose Place and Models, Inc. and many other smaller parts in films and television. But it was her portrayal of Sue Ellen in Dallas that put her on the map to stardom. From there, she was nominated for several Emmys and Golden Globe awards. In an interview, she admitted to having a penchant for playing dysfunctional women.

In 2016 Gray headed here to the UK to feature in a couple of episodes of Hollyoaks as Tabitha Maxwell-Brown.

The one thing in Gray’s life that is definitely not dysfunctional is her Oak Tree Ranch which she and her art director husband, Ed Thrasher, found by accident when they were helping friends from Tennessee look for one to buy. The ranch was across the street from the one their friends were viewing and was also for sale. It has many ancient oak trees hence the name.

Built in 1973 and only 35 minutes from Beverly Hills, the gated three-acre equestrian estate has numerous structures and amenities such as stables for horses; a tack room/barn; north-south tennis court; large swimming pool with spa, organic gardens, a koi pond, and even a chicken coop. Between the main house and a two-story guest house, there are a total of five bedrooms and four baths tucked into 4,800 square feet of living space.

Listing agents are Billy Rose, Natasha Sizlo and Andea Korchek of The Agency.
