Larry Gelbart’s home in Beverly Hills is sold
The Beverly Hills home of the late “MASH” writer Larry Gelbart came on the market for the first time in 40 years in February and sold this week for more than its asking price of $7,999,000.
The traditional-style house sits on three-quarters of an acre and has one of the largest lots in the flats of Beverly Hills. The compound includes a swimming pool with waterfall, a tennis court and a greenhouse. The main house and two guesthouses contain a total of seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
Gelbart, who died last year at 81, wrote for TV series including “After MASH” (1983-1984), “MASH” (1972-83) and “Your Show of Shows” (1950-54). He was also a producer and a director as well as a co-writer of the Broadway show “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.” Gelbart and his wife, Pat, raised their five children in the home.
The property drew multiple offers in the first week it was on the market, reported listing agent Susan Smith. Smith and Avrille Krom of Hilton & Hyland, Beverly Hills, had the listing.
