Bo Derek rose to fame for her golden cornrows and nude-colored tank suit in the 1979 movie "10." Now 64, the former sex symbol lives with her Sex And The City beau, John Corbett, 59, on a 10.5-acre ranch in Santa Ynez, California, and it's truly where their hearts can be found.
Bo Derek and John Corbett were set up back in 2002 by one of Corbett's friends. So far, the beautiful couple has been together for nearly 20 years without walking down the aisle, but their affection for one another is still on full display behind closed doors at their ranch home.
The pair's love nest is a 4,332-square-foot home on a 10.5-acre cliff manor ranch. The home was constructed in 1960, and Derek redesigned and redecorated it all on her own, transforming it into a Spanish-style 5-bed, 5-bath house.
The attractive duo actually has different styles, but they've kept their relationship strong. Bo explained it as chemistry, and John added, "We enjoy each other's company; we make each other laugh." They clearly enjoy their peaceful life and have never thought of making it official.
Before Corbett, Derek was married to actor John Derek for 22 years until his death in 1998. But she never had any children during the two relationships, for she thought her life was "so crazy" that kids wouldn't fit in. Contentedly, Derek now enjoys her beautiful home with her horses and dogs.
With a cool net worth of $40 million, Derek has more than enough to live out her life in a splendid mansion. But she instead chose to live a simple and quiet life on her peaceful and beautiful ranch. "We both travel so much, so, for us, our favorite vacation place is home," Bo once said. "That's where the romance is."
The couple views their ranch as a refuge because it's a very peaceful and private place. They don't have any help or any distractions. Bo even cleans the stalls herself, saying that carrying out daily chores in the stalls is as beneficial and enjoyable as exercising in a gym.
Bo and Corbett prefer a simple, natural life and try to stay grounded while working in Hollywood. Consequently, their home is pretty plain compared with other millionaire celebs' lavish mansions. The picture below shows their kitchen, and it's a simple classic ranch-style space.
Bo is a very sentimental person. She filled her home with mementos and objects from her late husband's former wives, Linda Evans and Ursula Andress, who were also her friends. The brown table in the probable dining room in the below image belongs to Linda Evans.
On one side of the table, a heart and a letter D are carved. The pattern was Linda's handiwork, and it's just gorgeous. Bo also maintains a camel saddle blanket that Linda took home from the set of the film Lawrence of Arabia.
The tea-ware is one of the many beautiful things she received from Ursula. Bo actually didn't buy things for her home whilst renovating it, and she made the best use of her old materials. Plus, Corbett would take things home from a set, such as a moose head from Northern Exposure. The couple hung it in the bar in their living room.
An actor and country music singer, Corbett is also a man of art. He likes to go to the Salvation Army, a Christian church and an international charitable organization, and pick up pictures and then enhance them. The picture in his hands is just one of his many artworks.
In addition to painting, Corbett likes to enjoy his booze collection with Bo in their spare time. Look at their abundant wine storage on the old cabinet against the wall. The low-key couple must have enjoyed a lot of fun times here.
The couple has a string of gorgeous Andalusian horses, and they treat them as their dearest friends. Bo spends her days looking after them, and she is also a horse welfare advocate. Every morning she wakes up, the first thing Bo says is "I'm gonna go for a ride today."
Besides the horses, the pair also has a dozen dogs as part of their family. Bo really appreciates the unconditional love and loyalty her dogs have shown her over the years, saying, "Animals are a joy and a bonus. They're my blessings in my life."
Both in their sixties now, Bo and Corbett embrace their later life and keep busy with their wonderful family. They have barbecues and cruise on horses with family and friends a couple of times a week. This easy lifestyle suits them down to the ground and who they are now.
