Betty White’s Brentwood, California, home has been torn down less than a year after she died.
White was 99-years-old when she passed away on New Year’s Eve 2021. Within months of her passing, the comedian’s charming home was sold for $100,000 over its $10.67 million asking price.
The legendary actress purchased the home in 1968 with her late husband Allen Ludden. Despite the history and charm of the home, it was sold for its land value. Prospective buyers were only allowed to see the exterior of the home, but there was rumored to be a room full of stuffed animals inside due to White’s love of animals.
Betty’s assistant, Kiersten Mikelas, took to Instagram earlier this month to share the news that White’s former home had been razed, “save the fireplaces which will be gone in short order.”
“This is such a busy time of year and coming up on the anniversary of Betty’s passing is hitting in ways I hadn’t anticipated. Her Brentwood home is no more,” Mikelas wrote on Betty White’s Instagram account. “I promise a wonderful tribute to our most wonderful lady very soon!!!!”

The five-bedroom home was built in 1952 and boasted 3,029 square feet of living space on a 3/4-acre lot. In addition to a sunroom that the “Golden Girls” actress was rumored to have spent a lot of her time, the property also featured a pool, a three-car garage and a guesthouse. Betty and Allen entertained guests such as Jimmy and Gloria Stewart, Dinah Shore and Burt Reynold at the property, a spokesman told WSJ.
