The longtime Beverly Hills home of the Morey Amsterdam family has sold for $4.9 million.
The 5,854-square-foot house, built in 1958, has walls of glass that open to the backyard, a living room with a fireplace and a step-down bar, a breakfast room, a den with a fireplace, four bedrooms and 41/2 bathrooms.
The Amsterdams often entertained at the single-story home, throwing dinner parties in the formal dining room or larger parties around the kidney-shaped swimming pool.
The family made some additions to the house during their ownership, adding what they called a play room with large picture windows, a television, a card table and a desk, where the comic wrote material.
Morey Amsterdam, who died in 1996 at age 87, played office worker Buddy Sorrell on "The Dick Van Dyke Show" (1961-66) and was in show business for more than seven decades.
