Betty White‘s former home in L.A. — where she’d lived for decades — is nothing but dust and dirt now … as the new owners apparently aim to build up a massive mansion in its place.
The late actress’s relatively modest Brentwood property — modest for A-list celebs, that is — was recently demolished … and now, photos of the aftermath are surfacing, showing construction crews already hard at work laying the groundwork for something new.
As you can see, her old house — a roughly 3,000-square-foot structure with 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, complete with a pool — is practically all gone, meaning the folks moving in did, in fact, want to build out from the ground up without a trace of the former estate intact.
Per real estate records, reviewed by TMZ, the buyers ended up being a dentist and his wife … and it looks like they filed for a permit to bulldoze back in November. In February of this year, they filed more paperwork signaling they’re interested in putting in a new pool and spa.
It would also appear they’re geared up to get an entirely new main house built as well. Considering what they’ve already suggested they’ll be putting in — you can bet it’s gonna be a lot bigger than what BW was staying in for quite literally decades.
As many know, Betty had lived at this Brentwood address since the ’60s … and her career in Hollywood got fully in swing shortly after that. Her crib was a staple of celeb sight-seeing for tourists visiting town — but now, they won’t be able to get an eyeful of what was once.
Pretty sad, to be honest. But, when you drop upwards of $10 mil for a piece of real estate — you’re entitled to do whatever the hell you want with it … regardless of its iconic status.
