According to Douglas Elliman real estate, the Brentwood, California estate sold on Friday for $4,000,260— more than one million dollars over the asking price. The buyer has not yet been identified but is said to not be someone in the public spotlight.
Rachelle Rosten, who held the listing, was able to elaborate on the sale. "The buyers are not fans of the show. To my knowledge, they’ve never watched the show," she tells House Beautiful. But what drew this family with kids (as she describes them) to the home was the architecture and location.
Within the last month, 20 offers put down and almost half of them were all-cash non-contingent, Rosten says. Because so much interest was expressed in the property, the buyers, whom she describes as a family with kids, upped their offer by $1,001,260 over the asking price to make sure they secured the four-bedroom home.

Whether you're a big time The Golden Girls fan, or just a casual viewer, you're probably familiar with Blanche's mid-century home located at 6151 Richmond Street in Miami, Florida. As you may already know, that address is bogus, as well as all the rooms in the house where the ladies were filmed—it was just a set. However, the iconic one-story home flashed during The Golden Girls first season is very much real. And now, for the first time ever, it's been put up for sale.
The charming, 2,901 square-foot, four-bedroom home has been listed for $2,999,000 with Douglas Elliman real estate. It is located at 245 N Saltair Ave in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, California.
This sale is important for two reasons. First, you can live in the actual The Golden Girls house! But second, after years of only seeing the exterior, fans finally get a look inside the actual home— and the style is just as unique as the ladies themselves.
While the home's '50s exterior and assortment of palm plants in the front made it fit with its Miami storyline, the interiors tell a whole different tale. Throughout the home, you'll find subtle nods to Japanese and Hawaiian culture. As it turns out, the property was custom-built in 1955 by a Hawaiian modern architect. The owners had family in Honolulu and wanted to bring some of that flair into their new home.
Inside, glass walls, clerestory windows, and ultra-high beamed ceilings allow natural light to enter the home. A veranda connects the living room to the backyard.
The home tastefully mixes natural colors and textural elements to create a calm and tranquil space.
Soft, yet vibrant furnishings and decor add a playful energy.
The kitchen might just be our favorite room. It features turquoise Formica, turquoise and avocado green cabinets and yellow accents—a true testament to its time!
Sliding shoji screens connect spaces throughout.
There are plenty of innovative storage solutions in the form of built-in cabinetry.
The home has four bathrooms. Blanche, Dorothy, Rose and Sophia would have loved all the space.
How this gem of a house stayed in such pristine condition is a mystery, but we sure do love it. You can view the listing held by Rachelle Rosten here. Now for an aerial shot—talk about views!
