The Brentwood home that actress Betty White lived in for more than 50 years and died in on New Year’s Eve last December has sold for more than the asking price — despite being marketed as a tear-down.

The New York Post is reporting White’s abode at 506 N. Carmelina Avenue sold for $10.57 million — $100,000 more than it was being offered for as a home that was sitting on flat property worth more than the building itself.

No photos of the interior of the home, built in 1952, were available, and potential buyers were not allowed access to the inside, but that didn’t stop an as-yet-unnamed buyer from taking the plunge.

The yellowed-shuttered home sits on three-quarters of an acre and has an in-ground pool in the backyard and well-manicured grounds and a two-car garage and a guest house.

White bought the home with her late husband, game-show host Allen Ludden, back in 1968 because it was conveniently located near the television studios they did most of their work at the time, while also providing a good deal of privacy.

Ludden, who famously hosted “Password” and even more famously met White on the show, died in 1980 from stomach cancer.

After White died just a few weeks shy of her 100th birthday — and six days after suffering a stroke — fans pay their respects to the actress who spent more than 80 years in front of the camera outside the property.

White and Ludden also owned a custom-built home in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, the land on which they purchased in 1978 — before fellow actor Clint Eastwood was elected mayor there. That seaside property sold in March after a bidding war raised the price from $7.95 million to $10.77 million.

The Los Angeles property was listed with Marlene Okulick of Sotheby’s International Realty, Pacific Palisades Brokerage.
