Just in time for the Halloween festivities, a home with enough of a spooky yet hilarious past to warrant its own television show has been taken off the market.

The onetime home to legendary film comic Groucho Marx, which was subsequently owned by horror film producer Irwin Yablans, sold to a Texas family for $3.8 million, The Real Deal has learned. It hit the market for $4.2 million in June.

Located on Sunset Plaza Drive, the renovated Hollywood Regency style home spans 3,700 square feet with four bedrooms and four bathrooms. A swimming pool, cascading waterfall, spa, outdoor entertainment space, and media lounge are among some of the amenities on the 10,000-square-foot lot.

Seller Neel Devani – also responsible for the home’s facelift – purchased the home for $3.45 million in November 2016, property records show.

Juliet Zacarias of Sotheby’s International Realty had the listing.

Marx, who owned the property from 1946 to 1949, played host of game show “You Bet Your Life.” His credits include “Duck Soup,” “A Night at the Opera,” and “Animal Crackers.” The home’s other owner, Irwin Yablans, is best known for producing and distributing horror films, including the “Halloween” series and “Hell Night.”
