Betty White’s house in Carmel, California, is for sale
Months after the death of Golden Girls star Betty White, her estate is selling the legend’s Carmel, California, home for $7.95 million.
White bought a 0.28-acre plot with her beloved husband, game show host Allen Ludden, in 1978. But he died from stomach cancer shortly after the rustic three-story abode was completed.
Now, it’s on the market, with Truszkowski Freedman & Associates of Sotheby’s International Realty handling the listing.

Architect Richard Hicks designed the Hollywood couple’s dream home, with nearly every window offering panoramic views of the Ribera Beach, Monastery Beach, and Point Lobos State Natural Reserve. Light wood paneling and wall-to-wall carpeting complement the natural beauty.
The top level has an open floor plan with cathedral ceilings and a tiled terrace to take in sumptuous sunsets. Outside, an exterior staircase links all three floors to a “storybook” landscaped garden.
In 2012, White revealed to AD that her favorite room in the house was the den. “It’s warm and cozy and decorated in gold-pink to match my golden retriever,” she said.
White spent her final years at her house in Brentwood, Los Angeles, which was more accessible to at-home care, but “if she had it her way, Betty would’ve lived and died in that home” in Carmel, a source told The New York Post. “It’s the home she shared with her husband; it’s where she felt more comfortable.”
