We may never know what it like to walk in Betty White's shoes, but someone is about to know what it was like to live in her home.
The late actress' Carmel property just sold to a fortunate new resident and we have an inside look.
The four-bedroom and four-and-a-half-bath home in Carmel sold above the asking price of $7.95 million for a $10.775 million. Sitting atop a grassy hill, the three-story house overlooks sweeping views of the sparkling ocean. The backyard has unique, luscious green landscaping with access to an easy walking trail down to the sandy beach or alongside the Carmel Meadows neighborhood.
Every room in the Carmel houses features mid-century design and jaw dropping panoramic views through large windows. The home has a homey feeling despite its cool-toned color scheme. The light wood paneling on the walls and ceiling really helps bring a beachy feel into the space.
As you move throughout the estate, you are bathed in natural light that helps bring warmth into the space. Amazingly, the home gets some of the best views as the sun dips below the horizon and lights up the sky with exquisite colors of pink and orange. There are countless rooms to enjoy these views, but the best places are snuggled up on the couch next to the warmth of the stonewall fireplace or relaxing on the balcony during a hot summer evening.
The house is a twinkle of the past that helps embody a vintage beachside living aesthetic. All rooms feature original utilities and designs, giving the estate a blast from the past ambiance. The kitchen and bathrooms are absolutely adorable and transport you straight to the 1980s in the best way possible.
The Carmel home is the perfect place for those who desire a more relaxed style of life, ideal for families or people wanting to escape to their own private paradise. The home was listed by agents Nicole Truszkowski and Zak Freedman of Sotheby’s International Realty. It is no wonder that it sold so quickly and generously above the asking price— you can practically imagine White walking through these halls and lighting up every room she walked into.
