The longtime home of the late Hollywood star Betty White is for sale for more than $10.5 million.
The five-bedroom property hit the market for the first time in more than half a century, just months after the death of the star, who is best known for her roles in “The Golden Girls” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.” “.
White, whose career spanned seven decades, died at home on New Year’s Eve early, just weeks before her 100th birthday. She had had a stroke six days earlier.
Built in 1952, the Brentwood Park home – which offers views of the Getty Museum and the surrounding mountains – was advertised with Sotheby’s International Realty for $10.575 million.
The listing says the property has been “cared for with great care”, while “the setting is peaceful with gardens full of flowers and old trees”.
Potential buyers have been told that the property – which has six bathrooms and three-quarters of the land – is for exterior views only and that it is being sold for “land”.
It continued: “This is a unique opportunity to build your dream home on a flat plot of land in a peaceful country setting.”
