The Los Angeles-area residence that once hosted spritzo king Don Rickles found its way to the open market this month with a $6.495 million ask. The Borscht Belt legend owned the home in Century City for decades; he passed away in 2017. According to The Los Angeles Times, the comedian’s widow, Barbara Rickles, lived in the house up until her death this winter.
The 1990-built villa is located in Century Woods Estates. It contains four bedrooms and five baths in 5,652 sq. ft. of interior living space; numbering among its amenities are a wet bar and an elevator. Details include arched entryways, ornamental columns and glossy oak plank floors. Notable spaces: the den, which boasts a floor-to-ceiling bank of built-in bookshelves, and the kitchen, which is dressed up with matching stone tops and backsplashes. Outside, a courtyard creates an intimate atmosphere.
The house is the second of Rickles’ residences to hit the open market in the past five years. In late 2016, Rickles listed his retreat in Malibu for $8 million. The Point Dume property sold the following summer, after his death, for $6.5 million.
