They Just Sold Betty White’s Home, What They Got For It Was….


Betty White’s last Los Angeles property has finally sold after only a month and a half on the market. The home, which was listed for $10.575 million, was sold for more than the asking amount and had a final price of $10.678 million.

Built circa 1952, Betty White’s longtime Los Angeles home features a pool, a three-car garage, and a guesthouse. A spokeswoman for Ms. White’s estate said that the actress and her third husband, the late Allen Ludden, bought the house in 1968 after marrying in 1963. The spokesman said that the pair chose the house because it was close enough to her numerous studios while still affording seclusion.

It was offered for sale as a teardown. Though the land and location speak for themselves, no prospective buyers were allowed into the 3,029 square foot home. Residents can enjoy views of the mountains and the Getty Museum thanks to the mature trees that dot the land, particularly along the perimeter, offering a pleasant ambiance and adequate solitude from neighbors.

Marlene Okulick of Sotheby’s International Realty Pacific Palisades Brokerage handled the listing.

According to Douglas Elliman’s research, the average single-family home in the Brentwood region of Los Angeles sold for $6.04 million in the first quarter of 2022, up 22.1 percent over the same period in 2021. The report states that sales volume fell 12.7 percent in the same period, owing to low inventory, according to local broker Marcy Roth of Douglas Elliman, who wasn’t engaged in the transaction.

White, who was known for her roles in “Golden Girls” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” died in December 2021, only weeks before her 100th birthday, after suffering a stroke. Her Carmel-by-the-Sea home sold for $10.775 million not long after.

Shortly after Betty White’s passing, her home in Los Angeles became the destination of many fan pilgrimages, as they made the trip to pay their respects to the late, great, universally beloved actress. The house was almost as much an icon as White herself, with its yellow doors and shutters, overall charm and impeccable presentation.

This is the first time her home residence has gone on the market in over a century.
