The “Golden Girls” star died in 2021 at the age of 99 and left behind some prime real estate.
The Brentwood property, which was the beloved star’s main residence for the past 53 years, came on the market in April for $10,575,000. It reportedly sold for $10,678,000.
Hot in Brentwood
Built in 1952, the stately Colonial with the cheerful yellow door has been “lovingly cared for” and offers views of the Getty Museum and mountains. The sale marked the first time the place had changed hands in over 50 years.
White and her husband chose the home in 1968 because it was “close enough to the various studios where she worked while still providing privacy,” a spokesman for White’s estate told the Wall Street Journal.
Set on three-quarters of an acre, the 3,000-square-foot home offers five bedrooms and six bathrooms. It comes with a pool, guesthouse, and three-car garage.
Gated and set back from the street, the grounds feature flower-filled gardens and old-growth trees.
The place was sold as a tear-down, and no interior photos were available, nor were buyers allowed inside the home.
“This is a unique opportunity to build your dream home on a flat lot in a serene country setting. The property is being sold for land value,” the listing notes.
Custom in Carmel
White’s custom-built beach house in Carmel was listed in March for for $7,950,000.
It grabbed the attention of the web and became the most popular listing on Realtor.com®. Just two months later, the property was snapped up for $10.4 million.
The Emmy winner starred in “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “The Golden Girls,” and “Hot in Cleveland,” as well as the 2009 rom-com “The Proposal.” The energetic White also hosted “Saturday Night Live” in 2010 at the age of 88.
Marlene Okulick of Sotheby’s International Realty–Pacific Palisades Brokerage represented the Brentwood listing.
