The longtime Malibu home of the late comedian Dick Martin and his actress wife, Dolly, is for sale at $11.5 million.
The Cape Cod-inspired beach house, built in 1946, has unobstructed ocean views and a wooden walkway that leads to the sand.
Features of the one-bedroom house include vaulted ceilings, brick fireplaces, French doors, a beach-facing deck and a wine cellar. There are four bathrooms and 2,551 square feet of living space.
A self-contained guest house, separated from the main house by a rose garden and fruit trees, has a fireplace and an open-beam ceiling.
Dick Martin, who died in 2008 at 86, was co-host of the popular “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In” from the late 1960s to early '70s. Often-used catchphrases such as "sock it to me" and "you bet your sweet bippy" became part of the American vernacular.
He went on to direct shows including “The Bob Newhart Show” and “Newhart.”
Dolly Martin, also known as Dolly Read, starred in the 1970 film “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls” and appeared on several television series. She was Playboy’s Playmate of the Month in May 1966.
Brenda Hayward of Coldwell Banker and Phillip Bailey are the listing agents.
