“Money, Money, Money”

It looks like Eve Plumb, who played Jan on “The Brady Bunch”, has gone from saying “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia” to “money, money, money”!

Eve purchased a beachfront Malibu cottage for $55,000, back in 1969 — when she was just 11 years old. She even had to have her parents sign on the dotted line for her. She kept the place for 47 years — and now she’s sold the home — for $3.9 million dollars! (that’s about an 800% profit). She didn’t get the full asking price of $4.15 million.

The cottage is a pretty plain looking place, but apparently that won’t matter. The new owners plan to bulldoze the home in order to build a mega-mansion overlooking the Pacific ocean. The new residence has been designed by Meis Architects, designer of the Staples Center, among other venues. Renderings of the new place show a cantilevered design with walls of floor-to-ceiling glass, a retractable “moon roof” and two-story garage wrapped in perforated metal. The proposed home would also have three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms with 3,500 square feet of living space. And if you look closely…is that a Alexander Calder “La Grande Vitesse” sculpture on the deck?!
