The longtime Hollywood Hills home of Doris Roberts, the beloved late actress best known for her role as the meddling matriarch next door on the hit sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond," has sold for $2 million.
The five-time Emmy winner acquired the five-bedroom, three-bathroom Spanish Colonial-style home in the Hollywood Hills in 1976 for $138,000, Variety reported. Roberts died a little more than a year ago at the age of 90.
Built in 1927 on a hairpin curve, the 3,703-square-foot residence features white interiors matched with wooden beamed ceilings, a speakeasy bar and a sun room that stretches across the west-facing side of the property. Outdoors there are several entertaining options, including a pool with a nearby bar, a barbecue and fireplace, and a grassy terrace shaded by trees.
The home came to market at the wishes of Roberts' heirs earlier this year at $2.45 million, according to Rodeo Realty's Roger Perry, who held the listing. It sold last Thursday with Roland Quino of Rodeo Realty representing the buyer. The new owners plan to remodel the property but preserve its old Spanish style.
Roberts was born in 1925 in St. Louis and was raised in the Bronx, New York. Aside from her role as the wise-cracking Marie Barone on Ray Romano's long-running sitcom, Roberts also was known for her role in the 1980s TV detective series "Remington Steele." She appeared on stage and in a variety of movies, including "The Rose," ''The Taking of Pelham One Two Three" and "Madea's Witness Protection."
