0 6 months ago

GOLDEN Girls may have been set in Miami, but the real residence featured in the show is in Los Angeles, and it’s on the market for the first time in 65 years.

The 4-bedroom, 3 and a half bathroom family abode which was home to Blanche, Rose, Dorothy and Sophia, is for sale for nearly $3 million.

The slice of Hollywood history is located in Brentwood, but stood in for the fictional Miami locale of The Golden Girls.

The TV interior was just a set; the inside of the real Brentwood residence was private for 65 years and this is the first time it has been for sale.

Inspired by the beauty of Mid-Century Japanese/Hawaiian architecture, award-winning Hawaiian architects Johnson and Perkins were commissioned to design the 4-bedroom 2,901 square foot dream home, which was custom built in 1955.

The house features floor to ceiling glass, clerestory windows and ultra-high beamed ceilings.

A traditional Japanese “engawa” — a strip of porch — borders the outside of the home.

Pristine original oak floors and the original turquoise, avocado and yellow kitchen are among the beautifully preserved period details at the property, which is listed with Rachelle Rosten of Douglas Elliman Real Estate at an asking price of $2,999,000.

While the exterior is familiar to fans, the interior scenes of the show were shot on a soundstage, so the real spaces behind the famous facade won’t look the same.

One interested buyer could be the Property Brothers, Drew and Jonathan Scott, 42.

The pair told Kelly Clarkson, during an episode of her chat show to promote HGTV’s A Very Brady Renovation, that their next dream project was to redo the home of the Golden Girls.

“We’re thinking next, Golden Girls house,” Jonathan told Clarkson, long before the house was put on the market.

The series finale of The Golden Girls was watched by 27.2 million viewers, and it remains one of the most-loved TV sitcoms of all time.

The show had an ensemble cast and the plot revolved around four older single women (three widows and one divorcée) sharing a house in Miami.
