Betty White is no longer with us, but traces of her legacy remain – and now one of them can be yours.
Her beloved Carmel, California home that she built with her husband more than four decades ago has hit the market for $7.95 million.
It was on this stretch of beach that she hoped to spend her final days – but instead she died at her home in Los Angeles.
“She never wanted to leave her home in Carmel but was forced into home care,” a source previously told the Post. “Los Angeles was more accessible.”
“If she had her way, Betty would have lived in this house and died there [in Carmel]. It’s the home she shared with her husband, she felt more comfortable there.”
know who passed away in December — a month short of her 100th birthday — bought the property with her husband Allen Ludden in 1978 for $170,000 (about $772,000 in today’s dollars) to build their dream oceanfront home.
Standing on a cliff, they designed a three-story, four-bedroom home of more than 3,600 square feet made of wood and glass. In 1981 they completed it.
As fate would have it, Ludden died after a battle with stomach cancer and spent only a few nights in the newly completed home.
Located in the upscale and laid-back coastal community of Carmel-by-the-Sea, each room offers panoramic ocean views of Point Lobos Conservation Area, Ribera Beach and Monastery Beach.
“As revered as Betty White was in public in real life, she was a private person. Betty’s home in Carmel was her special sanctuary and one of her favorite places to recharge and rejuvenate,” Truszkowski told The Post.
“Spending time in Carmel was one of Betty’s favorite things to do,” Truszkowski added. “She enjoyed many precious moments with her family and close friends. The home embodies the spirit of Betty and Allen, it was eloquently understated with a focus on nature and the natural beauty that surrounds the home.”
Designed by architect Richard Hicks, the home features multiple outdoor patios and walking paths.
Features include wall-to-wall carpeting and wood paneling throughout. On the lower level is a full floor master suite with a fireplace and living room.
“Paradise is yours here,” the listing reads.
