The Spanish villa, built in 1929, features beamed ceilings, leaded-glass skylights, inlaid wood flooring, floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors.

A balcony off the master suite overlooks the swimming pool and yard of nearly a third of an acre.

Including the maid’s room, there are five bedrooms and six bathrooms in 4,167 square feet of living space.

Unlimited Digital Access. $1 for 4 weeks.

A singer and a dancer, Gaynor was a leading lady in numerous Broadway musicals. She hosted several TV specials in the 1960s and ’70s and continues to perform at benefits.
