Betty White's longtime home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles has sold for $10.678 million after just one month on the market, PEOPLE confirms.

The property was originally listed in April, four months after the actress's death at 99, for $10.5 million.

The Hollywood legend and her late husband Allen Ludden bought the property in 1968, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The home, which is more than 3,000 square feet and has five bedrooms and six baths, was listed by Marlene Okulick of Sotheby's International Realty – Pacific Palisades Brokerage.

The couple purchased the home for its proximity to Hollywood studios and its private setting, according to WSJ.

The two-story home includes a sunroom where the actress reportedly enjoyed the view of the yard, which features flower-filled garden beds, old growth trees and a swimming pool, a spokesperson shared with the publication.

The three-quarter-acre lot also includes a three-car garage and a guesthouse, where the White and Ludden were joined by Gloria and Jimmy Stewart and Dinah Shore and Burt Reynolds for games of charades, the spokesperson said.

"Betty White was a California girl through and through," the star's estate told WSJ. "Despite living in New York when she and Allen Ludden were first married, she longed to be 'back home' in Los Angeles where she grew up."

News of the listing came on the same day PEOPLE confirmed White's beloved beach house in the picturesque town of Carmel, Calif. was purchased for $10.775 million, nearly $3 million over the asking price.
