bradburyhouseSci-fi fans with some money to spend will be excited to learn that legendary author Ray Bradbury‘s former house is for sale. The charming three bedroom, single family home at 10265 Cheviot Drive in Los Angeles is listed at $1,495,000.

Here is more about the house from the listing:

For more than half a century it was home to Ray Bradbury, one of the most celebrated, beloved authors of our time. This charming traditional features a grand living room with soaring vaulted ceilings, classic brick fireplace, large bay window allowing soft California light to flood in across original hardwood floors and custom built-ins; formal dining room for proper entertaining with detailed crown moldings, expertly crafted wainscoting and wood shuttered windows; 3 generously sized en-suite guest bedrooms; maid’s quarters on the main floor; expansive grounds with a large front yard as well as backyard to retreat to the outdoors in a secluded environment and a surprisingly spacious basement where he chose to write daily. A beautiful property with an important cultural provenance, come see where so many great works of fiction were conceived.”

Bradbury passed away two years ago at the age of 91. (Via The Los Angeles Times).
