Eve Plumb, a.k.a. Jan on ‘The Brady Bunch,’ sells her oceanfront home in Malibu


After years of “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia,” Jan is finally having her moment in the sun. Actress-painter Eve Plumb, best known as the awkward middle child on “The Brady Bunch,” has sold her oceanfront home in Malibu for $3.9 million after decades of ownership.

Sitting at the south end of Escondido Beach, the 1950s cottage returned to market earlier this year with plans for an ultramodern residence designed by Meis Architects, designer of Staples Center, among other venues.


Renderings that accompanied the listing showed a cantilevered design with walls of floor-to-ceiling glass, a retractable “moon roof” and two-story garage wrapped in perforated metal. In all, the proposed home would have three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms in 3,500 square feet of space.

Currently, the flat-roofed bungalow has three bedrooms and 1.75 bathrooms in 850 square feet of space. An expansive deck wraps the exterior of the home, taking in the wide, sandy beach.

The property was most recently listed for sale at $4.15 million. An 11-year-old Plumb bought the house in 1969 for $55,300, records show.

Brian Linder and William Baker of Deasy Penner & Partners were the listing agents. Faren Horn of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage represented the buyer.

Plumb, 58, has television credits that also include “The Love Boat,” “Fantasy Island” and “Fudge.” She appeared in the television special “Grease: Live” earlier this year.
