Nearly four decades after purchasing it — and three years of unsuccessful attempts at selling it — the Cape Cod-style estate finally sold.

The Broad Beach home of the actress and model Dolly Read and her late husband, comedian Dick Martin, traded hands below asking at $7 million, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The Malibu home originally hit the market in 2014 for $11.5 million. It was most recently listed for $9.4 million, property records show.

Spanning nearly 4,700 square feet, the ocean blue-painted home has two beds, three bathrooms and a guest house with its own kitchen. A courtyard with rose garden and fruit trees leads to the guest house.

Jack Pritchett of Pritchett-Rapf & Associates had the listing. Britt Elizondo and Damon Skelton of Compass represented the buyer.

Former pinup model Dolly Read has appeared on “Fantasy Island,” “Charlie’s Angels” and “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.” Her late husband, Dick Martin, gained fame as the co-host on “Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In” in the 1960s. He passed in 2008 at age 86. [LAT] – Natalie Hoberman
