The Goodbye Girl is saying farewell to her compound in Abiquiu, New Mexico. Our Luxury Portfolio International affiliate, Santa Fe Properties, recently announced the sale of Marsha Mason’s longtime residence.

 

The home of the four-time Best Actress Nominee, whose marquee performances include Cinderella Liberty, Chapter Two, and Only When I Laugh, is a stunning certified-organic farm with extensive frontage along the Chama River, one of New Mexico’s most majestic settings.

 

The estate includes a guest house, art barn, and a greenhouse to facilitate the growth of wild flowers and health-enriching plants. Surrounded by courtyard walls and magnificent landscaping, the property afforded the iconic actress the utmost privacy and natural beauty in the Land of Enchantment.
