The Golden Girls Mansion Sold For $1 Million More Than The Asking Price

SOLD | Constructed in 1955 | Spacious 2,901 square feet | 4 Bedrooms | 3.5 Bathrooms | Situated on 0.26 Acres Address: 245 N Saltair Avenue, Los Angeles, California, United States, 90049

Priced at $3 million, this nearly 3,000 square foot residence found a buyer in less than a month, who was willing to pay over $1 million more than the initial asking price. The house is located in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles and boasts 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. It was famously featured in the hit show “The Golden Girls” from 1985 to 1992, serving as the exterior shots for the characters’ home.

Designed by the acclaimed architects Johnson and Perkins, known for their work in Hawaii, this house was built in 1955. It was originally owned by David Noble Barry III and Margaret Carr Barry, who resided in the property until their passing in 2017 and 2019, respectively. The home was being sold by a trust. For the first season of “Golden Girls,” the actual house was used for exterior shots, but for subsequent seasons, NBC borrowed the blueprints from the Barry couple to create a replica on Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Inspired by Barry III’s father’s home in Honolulu, the Brentwood estate incorporates both Japanese and Hawaiian influences. You can find elements such as Shoji screens, custom-made cabinets, expansive windows that reach from floor to ceiling, and traditional Japanese wood flooring throughout the property. The original kitchen still remains, featuring charming yellow accents, Formica countertops, and avocado-colored cabinets, as confirmed by the Realtor. When the home was listed, Rachelle Rosten, the listing agent, anticipated that it would sell for over $1 million more than the asking price.
