This tale begins with a piece of trivia. Even though the hit TV sitcom "The Golden Girls" took place in Florida, the house from the series is in California.

Well, it's been sold. And it didn't last long. The iconic one-story home shown during the opening credits of the hit show's first season went up on the block in July for $2,999,000 with Douglas Elliman real estate. It sold this past week for $4,000,260 to a buyer that's not yet been identified. Take a look around the place here, courtesy of the listing on

The folks at House Beautiful also have a cool write-up on the sale. Rachel Rosten, the realtor who held the listing through Douglas Elliman Realty, told House Beautiful that the new owners weren't even fans of the show, but just loved the Hawaiian architecture.

Prior to the home going on the market, the interiors had never been shown before, and fans of the TV show could only do a drive-by.

The 2,901 square-foot, four-bedroom home in the tony Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles features a veranda connecting the living room to the backyard, as well as ultra-high beamed ceilings with floor to ceiling windows.

"The Golden Girls" starred Bea Arthur, Betty White, Estelle Getty and Rue McClanahan, and ran for seven successful seasons on NBC, and was a top 10 Nielsen Ratings hit for six odf those seasons. It won multiple awards and featured the hit song "Thank You for Being a Friend."
