Television executive Fred Silverman finally sold his Brentwood home for $17.75 million, just over half its original $30 million asking price.

Silverman, who inspired the character Fred Jones in “Scooby Doo,” bought the 8,000-square-foot ranch-style abode in 1988 for $2.55 million. He first listed it for sale last April and later slashed the asking price by $7.5 million, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The 2.5-acre compound comprises a five-bedroom, seven-bathroom main residence as well as a guest house with four more bedrooms and four bathrooms.

The main house dates back to 1952 and features a den, a billiards room, a step-down living room and a library. The 3,200-square-foot guest house has beamed ceilings and a living room with a projector and bar.
