Groucho Marx, the legendary comedian whose career spanned over 70 years, died in 1977. But that doesn’t mean the “Duck Soup” star can’t still be a punchline.
Marx’s sold his Hollywood Hills home for $35,000 in 1959, which would equal roughly $293,000 in today’s dollars.
This week, the house was listed at $4.2 million. It was purchased seven months ago for $3.45 million by Neel Devani, “a financier turned real-estate investor,” and has undergone renovations throughout.
According to The Real Deal:
“The four-bedroom, four-bathroom estate also has a large swimmer’s pool, a cascading waterfall from an elevated spa and a shower room with steam and sauna areas.”
Marx lived in the home during the early years of “You Bet Your Life,” the gameshow he hosted from 1947 to 1961.
