Betty White’s mid-century home, where she longed to spend her final days, lists for $8M

2 min read

A mid-century estate with expansive waterfront vistas and lush, secluded spaces owned by legendary actor and comedian Betty White is on the market for nearly $8 million.

The four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom property, tucked into the charming seaside town of Carmel-by-the-Sea, Calif., was listed by Truszkowski Freedman & Associates.

The airy, three-story “mid-century masterpiece” overlooks the Point Lobos Nature Reserve and two Carmel beaches — Ribera and Monastery beaches — from every room in the manor, courtesy of the oversized window installations. Variety reports that one of the four rooms is a “full-floor master suite” complete with a separate sitting room with its own en suite bathroom.

“Spending time in Carmel was one of Betty’s favorite things to do,” said Nicole Truszkowski of Truszkowski Freedman & Associates in a statement to SFGATE. “She enjoyed many treasured moments with her family and close friends. The home embodies the spirit of Betty and [her husband] Allen, it was eloquently understated with the focus on nature and the natural beauty surrounding the home.” 

White, according to a New York Post article published shortly after her death, wanted to spend her final days inside this home, but instead remained at her Los Angeles residence where at-home health care were more readily available.  The legend “felt more comfortable” inside the Carmel home, a more private location with major personal significance for White, a source told the Post.

The “Golden Girls” actress bought the land that the home sits on with her late husband Allen Ludden in 1978, nearly two decades after they met on the set of the game show “Password,” which Ludden hosted. She built the home with Ludden over the course of the following three years. Construction on the home was completed in 1981, but Ludden died from stomach cancer just days later. White never remarried, describing Ludden as the “love of my life.”
