Frank Sinatra’s first wife Nancy Barbato, who was the mother of all three of his children, passed away at age 101 last year and now her longtime Beverly Hills home is for sale to the tune of $7.995 million. Though Barbato was married to one of the most iconic singers in history, it might be difficult to put a face to the name considering Sinatra had four wives and numerous rumored affairs during his lifetime. Through all love relationships after Barbato and Sinatra’s split in 1951, the pair maintained a close bond for the rest of their lives with their children involved. This inviting, 1979-built ranch is a treasured Sinatra family home.Barbato lived here for many years after her divorce from Sinatra and it became a central hub for the family. It was the perfect size for having guests or entertaining with 4,785-square-feet of interiors, four bedrooms, and four and a half bathrooms. One of the most storied rooms in the home is the walk-in bar, where Old Hollywood celebrities toasted alongside Sinatra and Barbato. Other lovely spaces include a dining room, library, gourmet kitchen, butler’s pantry, and separate staff suite.Despite Barbato and Sinatra’s glitzy lives, the home remained modest and cozy in style. It embraces traditional elegance with French doors, vaulted and coffered ceilings, and impeccable detailing. Outside, a brick courtyard adds romantic charm.As the woman who loved and married Sinatra before his career flew to the moon, Barbato and this home are special parts of his legacy. Brimming with potential and retro style, “The Best Is Yet to Come” for this darling Beverly Hill property.Ron de Salvo of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
