Celebrity Home: Betty White's property hits the market, listed at $8 million by Nicole Truszkowski for Sotheby's International Realty!

This lovely beach house located in California belonged for more than 40 years to the famous and beloved Betty White, who died on December 31st, 2021, as well as to her husband Allen Ludden (1917 - 1981).

The TV-star couple envisioned this three-story waterfront home in Carmel, California, and the property was Betty's true haven for its nature and the beauty of its surroundings.

This is where she loved to spend time, with her family and close friends.

For the record, this house, which today offers approximately 334 m2, four bedrooms and four bathrooms, stands on a plot of approximately 1000 m2 acquired at the time for the modest sum of $170,000.

While the Golden Girls star was a revered public figure, she nonetheless enjoyed the privacy of her seaside villa to recharge her batteries.

Carmel, or Carmel-by-the-Sea, located less than 200 kilometers south of San Francisco, is a former artists' colony that has retained a bohemian spirit, although today it is a popular tourist destination known for its restaurants and charming European-style cottages.

Designed by architect Richard Hicks, Betty White and Allen Ludden's mid-century style home boasts stunning panoramic views of Point Lobos Nature Reserve, Ribera Beach and Monastery Beach from nearly every room in the house.

Its spacious terraces allow one to admire an exceptional landscape, and its garden enjoys direct access to the sandy beach.
