The actor who played middle daughter Jan Brady on the popular 1970s sitcom had the foresight to purchase a beach cottage on Malibu’s Escondido Beach in 1969 for $55,300. Records show that she sold the “tear down” in late June for $3.9 million.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the Malibu home at 27200 Pacific Coast Highway listed for $4.15 million with renderings for a modern beach house by Meis Architects, designer of L.A.’s Staples Center, among others.
