The former residence of Raquel Welch, who stars in the comic film “How to Be a Latin Lover,” is for sale in the Beverly Hills Post Office area at $5.695 million. She was married in the backyard of the 6,217-square-foot Mediterranean, which is set on a half-acre lot.

A two-story entry with a wrought-iron staircase leads to a living room that opens to a terrace. There’s a center island kitchen and a family room with a fireplace. A dining room, six bedrooms and eight bathrooms are among the interior spaces.

The movie-star-style master suite features the required dual bathrooms, dual walk-in closets and a sitting area with a fireplace. French doors open to the swimming pool area. The guest house is attached, and the five-car garage has been converted to a gym and parking for three vehicles. An elevator connects the levels.

Welch, 76, became a sex symbol in the 1960s, landing leads in the 1966 films “Fantastic Voyage” and “One Million Years B.C.,” in which she sported a leather and fur bikini. After decades and scores of acting credits, she is currently working on a pilot for the TV drama “Date My Dad.”
