Forget Marcia, Marcia, Marcia — money, money, money! Eve Plumb, who originated the role of Jan Brady in The Brady Bunch, is currently laughing all the way to the bank.
The former child star, 58, just sold her Malibu home for $3.9 million. According to the Los Angeles Times, she originally bought the pad at age 11 (with the help of her parents) for just $55,300 in 1969.
The oceanfront bungalow-style residence, which is raised above the ground with wood posts, was designed by Meis Architects. Architect Dan Meis is also behind such venues as the Staples Center in L.A., Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, and Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field.
According to the L.A. Times, the cottage is 3,500 square feet and has three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. Some of its desirable features include a retractable roof, floor-to-ceiling windows and a front porch.
“The most notable feature was, of course, the site on Escondido Beach Road, with one of the largest oceanfront parcels available in the area,” realtors Brian Linder and William Baker of Deasy/Penner & Partners told the Today show via email. “It was essentially a little cottage, with no heat or air conditioning, but a fabulous view on one of the best private beaches in Southern California.”
Plumb originally listed the home earlier this year for $4.15 million.
Plumb is best known for starring as the awkward middle child in the beloved series from 1969 to 1974. The actress, who has more than 60 acting credits to her name, recently played Mrs. Murdock in the Fox TV musical event Grease Live!
“It’s obviously still having an effect because everybody is still in love with the show,” Plumb told TV Fanatic of the Brady Bunch legacy in January. ” It’s been a very good effect, that everyone loves it and has good memories of it, and that’s been great.”
