The Late Bob Saget’s Longtime Brentwood Home Changes Hands in an Off-Market Deal
The late Bob Saget’s L.A. home of nearly 20 years just changed hands in an off-market deal, sold by the Saget Family Trust. Following the Full House star’s sudden passing in 2022, the Brentwood oasis was put on the market for $7.765 million in June and received price cuts until it was taken off at the end of the year. Last seen asking $6.495 million in December, it closed in late February for $5.4 million.
Set within a gated community, the home was built in 1964 and majorly renovated after Saget picked it up in 2003. The actor brought in famed Douglas Busch Design for the project, whom Saget spoke fondly of. “Douglas Busch is a Renaissance man,” the comedian and actor said. “He is an incredible architect, builder, photographer, inventor, environmentalist, and a really great person.”
The transformation included the works: A gut renovation, new electrical, and up-to-date plumbing. But, Saget saw the property’s long-term potential prior to the revamp. “Bob bought the house because he knew it had no mold,” Busch said, “He purchased the house furnished. It was very unique for its time.”
For the redesign, it was important that the property embody the familial warmth that anchored Saget. Busch recalled how the comedian often shared stories of his daughters, so the idea that this property remain suitable for a family was important. With five bedrooms and six baths, there is no lack of space for all to luxuriate in. The smooth transitions between the two-story living room, affixed with a dramatic skylight, and the media room, dining area, and family room highlight the home’s adaptability for entertaining.
The guest house outfitted with a full bath is the perfect place to put up loved ones from out of town, or it can be transformed into a secluded gym or office space. Add in the abundant greenery, pool, private patio, and outdoor barbeque and the property certainly feels like a getaway from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood life.
When on the market, the listing was held by Compass agent Adam Saget, nephew of the former homeowner. He described his individual experience with the beloved home, stating, “Personally, I’m going to miss our family gatherings and holiday celebrations we shared together in the home. So many great stories, lots of laughs, and memories to cherish for years to come.”
Multiple outlets have reported that the home recently sold, which Compass confirmed.
