Eve: Portrait of a Teenage Real Estate Tycoon

Stories like this make me smile!

The Los Angeles Times reports: 
After years of “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia,” Jan is finally having her moment in the sun. Actress-painter Eve Plumb of “The Brady Bunch” fame has sold her home in Malibu for $3.9 million after decades of ownership. Though she played the part of awkward middle child to a T on the sitcom, it appears the actress was quite savvy away from the set. An 11-year-old Plumb, with the help of her parents, bought the oceanfront property in 1969 for just $55,300. Sitting at the south end of Escondido Beach, the 1950s cottage returned to market earlier this year with plans for an ultramodern residence designed by Meis Architects, designer of the Staples Center, among other venues. Plumb's home currently has three bedrooms and 1.75 bathrooms in 850 square feet of space. But design firm, MEIS, is set to turn the 1950s bungalow into a modern, beach-front Malibu home, featuring a retractable moon roof, floor-to-ceiling glass, and a stacked car-garage, according to the company's website. The new home would have three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms in 3,500 square feet of space.
Now if only she and Maureen McCormick could make up in real life!
