The house used in the first two seasons of “Golden Girls” has new owners. The home sold for $4 million, $1 million over the asking price.
The iconic TV show tells the story of four women living together in Miami. However, the series shot all 7 seasons in studios in Los Angeles.
For the first two seasons, the sitcom used this one-story Brentwood, California home as the facade. The former owners put the 2,901 square foot house up for sale on July 16.
The original asking price was $2,999,000. After landing on the market, a bidding war over the property ensued. In order to post the winning bid, the new owners offered more than $1 million over asking price.
The Realtor for the “Golden Girls” House Talks About the Sale
The new owners wish to remain anonymous. However, the new buyers don’t consider themselves “Golden Girls” fans.
Rachelle Rosten, who held the listing, spoke with House Beautiful about the sale. “The buyers are not fans of the show. To my knowledge, they’ve never watched the show,” she said. They found the four-bedroom home’s location and architecture worth the massive bid.
Rosten also spoke on the other details that prospective buyers liked about the house. “There were people who loved the house, there were people who loved the lot and/or location, and there were people who loved the show,” she said. “The architecture of the home was amazing and because it was untouched for 65 years, it was really unspoiled, and it was just really beautiful.”
Many fans of the series hoped that HGTV could purchase the house. In 2019, the network purchased the home used for “The Brady Bunch.” Not only did HGTV buy the house, but the company also remodeled the inside to look like it did on the 1970s sitcom. The network aired the house remodel on “A Very Brady Renovation.”
