Buddy Hackett’s home lists for $18 million in Beverly Hills

The longtime home of late actor Buddy Hackett, the iconic funnyman from “The Music Man” and “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World,” has surfaced for sale at $18 million in Beverly Hills.

Hackett, who died in 2003, had owned the estate since it was built in 1952. It’s currently being sold by his widow, Sherry Cohen.

The property spans an acre on a corner lot across from the Los Angeles Country Club. The interiors could use a remodel, so buyers have the option to either update the home, preserving its storied past, or erect a mansion of up to 20,000 square feet and add a second story to take advantage of the golf course views.
