The ’80s sitcom might have been set in Miami, but the home is actually located in Los Angeles.
You can now own the 1950s midcentury that played home to the comedic adventures of Blanche, Dorothy, Rose, and Sophia of The Golden Girls. Although the hit sitcom—which ran from 1985 to 1992—was set in Miami, the residence actually rests on a shaded lot in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Brentwood.
On the market for the first time in 65 years, the four-bedroom home was built in 1955 by award-winning Hawaiian architects Johnson and Perkins. The midcentury was inspired by Japanese and Hawaiian architecture, and it sports an interior that’s worlds apart from the fictional show’s set.
Measuring 2,901 square feet, the dwelling boasts impeccably maintained period details, including an original turquoise, avocado, and yellow kitchen. Restored oak floors, floor-to-ceiling glass, clerestory windows, and vaulted, beamed ceilings can be found throughout. Sliding Japanese shoji screens eliminate the need for drapes, while still allowing plenty of light to illuminate the interior.
The free-flowing layout connects the primary living areas, which extend outdoors thanks to a large, covered patio at the rear facade. Down the hall from the living areas are four bedrooms, as well as three renovated baths. A well-lit office offers a quiet space to work. Keep scrolling to see more of the home, listed for $2,999,000.
