Jackie Gleason's Former Home Just Outside of Hialeah Hits the Auction Block

Jackie Gleason may have thought, "As always, the Miami Beach audience is the greatest audience in the world," but the best place for a party pad in Miami? Apparently he thought that was on a golf course just outside of Hialeah. The television icon's former home in the Country Club area of western Miami-Dade goes up for auction on Saturday, and with it comes a bit of television history.

Gleason, famous for his role on The Honeymooners, relocated his variety show, The Jackie Gleason Show, to Miami Beach in 1964. A year later he had this 9,250-square-foot pad built for him in the census-designated area of Country Club. The home takes up three lots right along a golf course, and includes a large guest house that played host to some of Gleason's famous guests.

While not as architecturally stunning as "The Jackie Gleason House" in Miami Beach, nor his former chapeau in Peekskill, the home is still a nice representation of mid-century Florida architecture. But don't take our words for it. See for yourself.

And away we go!

The auction starts on Saturday through Auction Company of America, but the winner doesn't just get the home. The package also includes Honeymooners memorabilia, one of the bus driver outfits seen on the show, some diamond jewelry, sports memorabilia, a Rolex walk, and a custom golf cart.

To put that house and Hialeah in the same sentence is insulting.

How times have changed! Gleason was a huge star in his day but his house is just a little nicer than the average Joe's. No enormous walled-in hideaway, but a vast improvement from Kramden's apartment!

Country Club's address is Hialeah. It is essentially unincorporated Hialeah. Everyone in Country Club and Palm Springs North has a Hialeah address.

It is not Hialeah. It is unincorporated Miami-Dade. They call it Hialeah because the post office calls itself the Hialeah branch thus we who live in country club suffer. Done my research already.
