      I may be mistaken, but isn't that the house Pilar sold a few years ago? If so, Duke never lived there. This was the house she lived in with her husband she has now.

      Not John Wayne house. The home he had at his death is no longer standing.

      That's what I thought, and I am sure we have posted about this.
      Anyway here is piece relating to it:-

      Later in the Duke's life, in 1966, when his health began to fail him, he moved from his Beverly Hills home (at 4750 Louise Avenue) back to the clean air of Newport Beach. John Wayne lived in a large waterfront home overlooking the beautiful Newport Bay, sailing his yacht "The Wild Goose"(a former minesweeper) until his death in 1979. (He was even buried in a Newport Beach cemetery, just a few miles to the northeast.)
      Alas, the Duke's island home, a one-story, 10-room, 7-bath white ranch house with a pool, at the tip of Bayshore Drive, was recently torn down by the new owner. If you take a Newport harbor cruise, the guides will point out where waterside mansion used to be. Wayne's widow continued to live there until very recently; the property is now owned by a couple who also own the Four Seasons Hotelin Beverly Hills. Their $6 million yacht, The P'zazz, is worth as much as the Wayne mansion.
