Going, going, gone.

Comedian, actress and talk show host Whoopi Goldberg sold her Pacific Palisades home in just two weeks for $8.8 million—$5,000 over the $8.795 asking price.

The gated property, located on Amalfi Drive in The Riviera, is enclosed by “mature trees and lush landscaping.”

The home, built in 1933, retains period features, including a marble checkerboard-pattern foyer floor, crown moldings, fireplaces and an onyx-clad master bathroom.

On a half-acre lot with 7,039 square feet of living space, the six-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bathroom house has living, dining and family rooms and a library.

The home, designed for grand-scale entertaining, was previously owned by David Niven, who died in 1983 at the age of 73. The Oscar-winning actor had roles in “Separate Tables,” “The Pink Panther” and “Around the World in 80 Days.”

David Mossler of Douglas Elliman was the listing agent.
