Nope, it isn't in the 90210 ZIP code.

It's not even in Beverly Hills.

Arguably, the location is even better: Malibu, California.

Actress Shannen Doherty — best known to many, love her or hate her, as Brenda Walsh from the hit 1990s TV show "Beverly Hills, 90210" — recently sold her longtime home in Malibu for $2,275,000. She'd listed it in February and had asked as much as $2,595,000, settling for about 15 percent less than that. (Click here or on a photo for a slideshow.)

She bought the home in 1998, for an undisclosed price, via a trust associated with a business manager. After the housing bubble burst, she apparently staved off foreclosure threats: In 2009, 2011 and 2012, notices declared that the house was in default and would go to public auction, but in late 2012 the creditor withdrew its demand for sale and canceled its default notice.

Meanwhile, her trust still owns a Malibu home that she bought in 2004 and tried to sell in 2008-2009. It too faced foreclosure for a time, with a couple of notices of default issued and canceled in 2010 and 2011.

The house she just sold was built in 1977 and wears its architectural era on its sleeve, with wood cladding and a backyard wooden deck that ambles right up to the lagoon-style pool. It has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in 3,600 square feet.

The property is about a quarter of an acre in Malibu Country Estates, a neighborhood that the Los Angeles Times once characterized as a surprisingly suburban pocket of the ritzy beach town — "nothing grand, nothing ostentatious, nothing that screams 'Malibu.' And there is no one living here who is followed by a posse of paparazzi." (Sorry, Shannen.)
