The comedy legend and her husband Allen Ludden had originally built the three-story beach-front home in Carmel Valley, California together, in the early eighties.

Unfortunately Ludden died shortly after the property – which is built in a village north of Los Angeles and south of San Francisco – was completed in 1981.

The 3,600-square-foot-property includes four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms and was set at the asking price of $7.95million.

The power couple had only paid $170K originally for the then-empty quarter-acre plot according to Dirt.

Nicole Truszkowski of Truszkowski Freedman & Associates, Sotheby’s International Realty – Carmel Brokerage, who holds the listing alongside Zak Freedman, told People last week: ‘The home embodies the spirit of Betty and Allen. It was eloquently understated with the focus on nature and the natural beauty surrounding the home.

‘Spending time in Carmel was one of Betty’s favorite things to do. She enjoyed many treasured moments with her family and close friends.’

The town of Carmel, which is also known as Carmel-by-the-sea, is situated near other celeb-favorite enclaves like Monterey and Big Sur.

Truszkowski said that despite Betty being one of the most well-known comedians in the world ‘she was a private person. Betty’s home in Carmel was her special sanctuary and it was one of her favorite places to recharge and rejuvenate.’
