Betty White’s beloved California home she built with husband asks $8M

Betty White is no longer with us, but traces of her legacy remain — and now, one of them can be yours.

Her beloved Carmel, Calif., home that she built with her husband more than four decades ago has hit the market for $7.95 million.

This seaside spread was where she hoped to live her final days — but instead, she passed away in her Los Angeles home.

“She never wanted to leave her home in Carmel, but was forced to for at-home care,” a source previously told The Post. “Los Angeles was more accessible.”

“If she had it her way, Betty would’ve lived and died in that home [in Carmel]. It’s the home she shared with her husband, it’s where she felt more comfortable.”

White, who passed away in December — one month shy of her 100th birthday — purchased the plot of land with her husband Allen Ludden for $170,000 in 1978 (roughly $772,000 in today’s dollars), to build out their dream oceanfront home.

The three-story manor is made up of four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms.

Standing on a cliff, they designed a three-story, four-bedroom wood and glass home of more than 3,600 square feet. They completed it in 1981.

As fate would have it, Ludden died after a battle with stomach cancer, spending only a few nights in the newly finished home.

Located in the upscale and relaxed seaside community of Carmel-by-the-Sea, each room features panoramic ocean views of the Point Lobos Nature Reserve, Ribera Beach, and Monastery Beach.

Nicole Truskowski and Zak Freedman of Truszkowski Freedman & Associates of Sotheby’s International Realty have the listing.

“As revered as Betty White’s public image was in real life, she was a private person. Betty’s home in Carmel was her special sanctuary and it was one of her favorite places to recharge and rejuvenate,” Truszkowski told The Post.

“Spending time in Carmel was one of Betty’s favorite things to do,” Truszkowski added. “She enjoyed many treasured moments with her family and close friends. The home embodies the spirit of Betty and Allen, it was eloquently understated with the focus on nature and the natural beauty surrounding the home.”

Designed by architect Richard Hicks, the home comes with several outdoor decks and walking trails.

Features include wall-to-wall carpets and wood panels throughout. On the lower level is a full-floor primary suite with a fireplace and a sitting room.

“Here, paradise is yours,” the listing states.
