Archie Bunker’s Malibu Home Sells for $9.3 Million Dollars

Hot Property | Carroll O'Connor

Neal J. Leitereg

The Malibu home of late actor Carroll O’Connor, best known for his role as Archie Bunker on the ’70s sitcom “All in the Family” and his wife, Nancy Fields O’Connor, has sold for $9.3 million.

Sitting on a deep swath of sand on Broad Beach, the oceanfront home is an eye-catcher for its Moorish influences. Loggias with arched openings set the tone for the home, which was built in 1974. Decorative tile and a green-hued roof create visual contrast against a white-walled exterior.

Inside, more than 3,600 square feet of interior space includes a living room, a dining area, three bedrooms, four bathrooms and a sauna. Arched double doors off the common rooms open to an inner courtyard with a swimming pool, and a second floor balcony overlooks 42 feet of beachfront.
