Betty White’s longtime LA home $10.67M . sells in

Thank you for being a friend – by paying more than the asking price!

After hitting the market in April for $10.57 million, and for the first time in more than 50 years, the Los Angeles home of the late Betty White has been sold, its listing brokerage told The Post.

Final selling price: About $10.67 million, some $100,000 upon asking. The identity of the new owner is not immediately clear.

The home stands in affluent Brentwood at 506 North Carmelina Avenue, and it is where the “Golden Girls” titan lived at the time of her death last New Year’s Eve at age 99 – more than three weeks from her 100th birthday. A week after having had fewer and fewer strokes. Following his death, fans gathered outside the property to pay their respects to the star, who entertained generations of spectators during his career spanning more than 80 years.

Despite the allure of the standing home, the structure built in 1952 with canary yellow shutters, the listing notes that the property will be sold for the land value, giving a buyer the opportunity to build their dream home on a flat lot. What’s more: Potential buyers could not get internal access to the home during visits. (However, due to her lifelong love of animals, the home was known to have a room full of stuffed animals. It also has five bedrooms and 3,029 square feet of space.)

The lot spans .72 acres, and overlooks the Getty Museum and the surrounding mountains. The grounds also have gardens and mature trees.

White and her late husband, Alan Luden, bought the spread in 1968. Its Selling Points: Its proximity to the various studios where he worked, as well as its privacy.

The couple also owned a seaside home in Carmel, California. He bought the land for it in 1978 – which was reportedly his dream home after its construction. The property listed in March for $7.95 million and sold out just weeks after an apparent bidding war hit the market for a whopping $10.77 million.
