Betty White’s longtime LA home is selling for $10.67 million

Thank you for being a friend – by paying more than the asking price!

After the late Betty White’s home went on the market for $10.57 million in April and sold in Los Angeles for the first time in more than 50 years, stockbroker The Post said.

The final sale price: about $10.67 million, about $100,000 more than the offer. The identity of the new owner is not immediately clear.

Located in affluent Brentwood at 506 North Carmelina Ave., that’s where the “Golden Girls” titan lived at the time of her death last New Year’s Eve at the age of 99 – less than three weeks after her 100th birthday and less than a week after a stroke. Following her death, fans gathered outside the property to pay their respects to the star, who has entertained generations of viewers throughout her 80-plus year career.

Despite the charm of the standing home, a 1952 building with canary yellow shutters, the listing notes that the property would be sold at lot value and adds that it offers a buyer the opportunity to build their dream home on a flat lot. In addition, interested parties could not get inside access to the house during viewings. (However, the home was known for having a room full of stuffed animals due to her lifelong love of animals. It also has five bedrooms and 3,029 square feet of space.)

The property is set over 0.72 acres and overlooks the Getty Museum and nearby mountains. The site also has gardens and mature trees.

White and her late husband, Allen Ludden, bought the spread in 1968. Their selling points: proximity to various studios where she worked and privacy.

The couple also owned an oceanfront home in Carmel, California – they bought the land for it in 1978 – which was said to be their dream home once it was built. This property was trading for $7.95 million in March and sold just weeks after it went on the market for a much higher $10.77 million after an apparent bidding war.

Marlene Okulick Sotheby’s International Realty – Pacific Palisades Brokerage – held the listing for the Los Angeles property.
