The “Golden Girls” Home Sells for Over $4 Million

An impressive price for an even more impressive home

For some people, looking back on The Golden Girls sparks nostalgia for a beloved television show; for others, it involves a complex legacy of a show that ventured to some unexpectedly bleak places. That we’re still talking about The Golden Girls at all decades after its final episode first aired attests to the sticking power that the series has.

Though the show was set in the very nice city of Miami, the real-life house in which it was set can be found in Los Angeles. Last week, an article at Dwell noted that the house was on the market, with a list price of $2,999,000. And while the outside might look familiar to television viewers of a certain age, the interior is very different from the show’s set.

Architecturally speaking, it’s also very distinctive. The article at Dwell notes some of the hallmarks of its design:

On the market for the first time in 65 years, the four-bedroom home was built in 1955 by award-winning Hawaiian architects Johnson and Perkins. The midcentury was inspired by Japanese and Hawaiian architecture, and it sports an interior that’s worlds apart from the fictional show’s set.

The house’s use of natural lighting is absolutely stunning, and the arched ceilings make for an especially striking design feature. And evidently, someone was quite taken by the house’s stylish architecture: the house’s listing at Douglas Elliman now lists the house as having been sold. Even more impressive? The sale price, which is listed at $4,000,260. Whether it sold to a midcentury architecture buff or a 1980s sitcom fan was not revealed.
