The longtime home of the late entertainer Jayne Meadows has come on the market in Encino at $4,488,888.
The unusual asking price is a nod to Meadows' upbringing by her missionary parents in China, where eight is considered a lucky number.
Meadows -- along with her husband, Steve Allen, the early talk show innovator who died in 2000 at 78 -- entertained scores of Hollywood notables during her 57 years on the estate.
The ranch-style house, built in 1951, has a formal entry, living and dining rooms, five bedrooms, seven bathrooms and 7,542 square feet of living space. The family room features a stone fireplace, walls of windows, a wet bar and built-in shelving. A staircase leads to an office/media room, storage rooms and one of the bathrooms.
The current library could be reinvented as a wine cellar.
The more than an acre of hilltop grounds is heavily wooded with a swimming pool, a barbecue and statuary.
There's motor court parking for a dozen vehicles and a four-car garage.
Meadows, who died this year at 95, was the stage, film and TV actress with the winsome smile who became a household staple on such early game shows as "I've Got a Secret" and "What's My Line?"
Allen, "The Tonight Show's" first host, was on numerous talk, variety and game shows. The Grammy winner was also a pianist and composer.
Lynne Weiss of Coldwell Banker is the listing agent.
