The Los Angeles-area home that was the retirement residence for legendary funnyman Bud Abbott sold for $1.25 million.

The 0.27-acre property in Woodland Hills, California, features a three-bedroom, two-bathroom, 1,286-square-foot home built in 1956, along with a detached guest house and an outdoor pool. The property last changed hands in 1989 for $440,000 and was listed in April for $1.29 million, selling in late June at a 3.8% discount.

Abbott teamed with Lou Costello in a two-decade comedy partnership that spanned stage, radio, films and television. With Abbott as the fast-talking straight man and Costello as the exasperated target of his comic abuse, the pair delighted audiences with their zany “Who’s on First?” routine and in movie classics including “Buck Privates” and “Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.” Abbott resided at the Woodland Hills home from the late 1950s until his death in 1974.
