Former “Brady Bunch” star Eve Plumb sold her Malibu beach house for $3.9 million last week — a huge return on the $55,300 she shelled out when she bought the pad as an 11-year-old in 1969, the L.A. Times reported.

Even adjusting for inflation, that’s more than a ten-fold return on her investment.

Plumb, now 58, was no ordinary tween at the time she bought the property with the help of her parents.

Her five-year run as the beleaguered middle sister Jan on the “Brady Bunch” was just beginning, but she was already a veteran child actor with the western TV series “Gunsmoke” and “The Big Valley” on her resume.

The 850-square foot cottage, built in the 1950s, may be modest, but Plumb’s pad sits on a plum piece of property — right on Escondido Beach.

“This was one of the highest prices ever paid for an undeveloped lot in Malibu,” Justin Juarez, a spokesman for the real estate firm said. “Both we and the sellers felt this was an amazing price to attain for this humble beach cottage!”

The three-bedroom house will make way for an ultramodern manor designed by Meis Architects, the firm behind the Staples Center, according to the report.

There will be a retractable moon-roof and floor-to-ceiling glass walls in a 3,500 square-foot abode that’s fit for Marcia.

Plumb has continued to act in recent years and was seen most recently in the “Grease Live!,” which aired on Fox in January.
