The Los Angeles home owned by Don Rickles since 1989 hit the market one week ago at $6.5 million and is already seeing a potential buyer.

Rickles, who passed away at the age of 90 in 2017 from kidney failure, had purchased the property for $2.17 million at the time.

His wife of 53 years, Barbara Rickles, remained in the home until her death earlier this March. She was 84.

The estate was then listed on June 13 for the first time since they both passed. By June 21, it was already pending an offer.

Made up of four bedrooms and five bathrooms, the 5,600-square-foot residence is one of 36 Mediterranean-style homes in Century Woods Estates, an upscale gated enclave. 

Pegged as a “rare opportunity” to own, the home features a dramatic two-story entry with a sweeping staircase, hardwood floors and a large living room with a hand-carved stone fireplace imported from Europe.

Amenities include a paneled library/den, a glass-mirrored wet bar, a gourmet center island kitchen with commercial appliances and an elevator.

The owner’s suite comes with a sitting area, an outdoor private patio, dual baths, spa tub and large walk-in closets.

Shortly after his death, Rickles’ coastal estate in Malibu’s Point Dume sold to Equinox founder Donato Errico for $6.5 million.

Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency holds the listing.

Born and raised in Queens, Rickles was long known for his insult comedy. The stand-up comic and actor gained fame for his aggressive style of humor on “The Dean Martin Show” and “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.”

He later enjoyed a long career as a Las Vegas headliner. His film credits include “Casino” and the “Toy Story” movies.

Rickles also appeared on Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” which premiered in 2013.

In 2014, he was honored by Spike TV for its “One Night Only” special after spending six weeks in the hospital a year prior with a flesh-eating disease, which he underwent eight operations for, including skin grafts on his leg.
