Home isn’t always where the heart is. Betty White spent her final years in a home she didn’t really want to live in, The Post can report.

White, who passed away on Friday morning, lived in a five-bedroom, six-bathroom Brentwood home, located in West Los Angeles.

But if the trailblazing actress had it her way, she would have remained at her longtime marital home in Carmel, which she first built with her late husband, Allen Ludden, when they bought the land in 1978.

“She never wanted to leave her home in Carmel, but was forced to for at-home care,” a source 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.”

Ludden, her third and final husband, passed away from stomach cancer back in 1981.

Mike Lopez of the Los Angeles Police Department told The Post, “Foul play was not suspected,” but that officers responded to a radio call Friday at about 9:30 a.m. concerning “a natural death investigation” at the Los Angeles home of the 99-year-old titan of sitcoms.


Her final home stands in the affluent neighborhood of Brentwood. Located at North Carmelina Avenue and surrounded by lush hedges, the home is modest — but still appears to have been an attraction.

With a white wooden exterior and yellow shutters, the 3,029-square-foot spread, built in 1952, stands on about three-quarters of an acre, according to Realtor.
