When a chapter ends, a new one begins. And in the case of Betty White’s longtime home in Los Angeles, that means a whole new future.
Her hideout in Brentwood Park listed for a princely sum of $10.57 million, marking the first time the home has come on the market in more than 50 years. But rather than a new buyer owning the charming canary-shuttered property, it is being sold at lot value – more specifically, as an opportunity “to build your dream home on a flat lot in a tranquil rural setting,” the listing reads.
White, the acclaimed “Golden Girls” actor, died in this houselocated at 506 North Carmelina Ave., on New Year’s Eve just weeks from her 100th birthday and six days after she suffered a stroke.
“Betty fell asleep peacefully and without pain. That is the most important thing for me and comforts me as her dear friend. Everything else is Betty’s private business,” White’s longtime agent and friend Jeff Witjas said in a statement at the time.
White bought the house in 1968 with her late husband Allen Ludden. The couple chose the home for its proximity to various studios where they worked while still offering privacy, according to a spokesman for White’s estate said the Wall Street Journalwhich was the first to report the listing.
By the looks of it, the property has five bedrooms and six bathrooms — and spreads out over 3,029 square feet. But those interested will not be able to visit the inside.
“There will be no access to the interior of the home,” the listing reads. “All performances are outside only.”
Still, perks of this City of Angels include “huge park-like lots,” mountain views, and even views of the Getty Museum, according to the listing.
What’s more: The 3/4 acre property has flowering gardens and mature trees.
Marlene Okulick from Sotheby’s International Realty – Pacific Palisades Brokerage – holds the listing.
Though she retained ownership of this Los Angeles property and spent her final days there, White wanted to live elsewhere: her longtime home in north Carmel, California. weeks after this home come on the market in March it landed buyers in an apparent bidding war.
This three-tiered beach spread sold for $10.77 million, a good chunk above the original price of $7.95 million.
