The estate of legendary comedian Don Rickles sold his Malibu home for $6.5 million, four months after his death.

Donato Errico, the co-founder of luxury fitness chain Equinox, bought the Point Dume property for $1.5 million less than its original asking price of $7.9 million.

Rickles, who gained fame on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson,” purchased the traditional-style property in 2004 for $3.3 million.

The 3,421-square-foot estate has four bedrooms and five bathrooms with “deeded rights to Little Dume Beach,” according to listing details. The two-story home also has an eat-in kitchen with vaulted ceilings, a tennis court and swimming pool.
