The longtime Beverly Hills home of “Let’s Make a Deal” game show host Monty Hall and his wife, producer Marilyn Hall, has sold for $6.409 million, or $10,000 over the asking price.

Built in the 1920s, the classic Mediterranean house hit the market in early February and was in escrow after about a week on the market, according to real estate sources with knowledge of the sale. It had been the Hall family home for 55 years.

The two-story house has nearly 3,900 square feet of living space that includes a step-down living room, a formal dining room and a great room. The master suite has two bathrooms and a private terrace that overlooks lush landscaping and a swimming pool in the backyard.


There are four bedrooms and five bathrooms plus detached guest quarters.

Monty Hall, who died last year at 96, was the co-creator and face of the popular game show, which started in 1963. He produced and appeared on scores of other shows including “Love, American Style,” “That ‘70s Show” and “That Girl.”

Marilyn Hall, who also died last year, at 90, was an actress, author, songwriter and Emmy-winning producer. Among her credits was the television movies “A Woman Called Golda” (1982) and “Do Your Remember Love?” (1985).

As an author, she wrote “Celebrity Kosher Cookbook,” which offered various recipes favored by Hollywood stars. She also wrote book reviews for the Los Angeles Times.

Wayne Saks of Rodeo Realty was the listing agent and also represented the buyers.
