Ray Bradbury's Long-Time Cheviot Hills House Hits the Market

Ray Bradbury—the groundbreaking science fictionist (most famous for Fahrenheit 451) and monorail enthusiast who died in 2012—lived for more than 50 years in the same house in Cheviot Hills. Today that house has hit the market and it's a charmer: a 1937 traditional with lots of classic Los Angeles features of the era, including cool tiles, beamed ceilings, and useful-looking built-ins. It comes with three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a dining room, original hardwood floors, front and backyards, "and a surprisingly spacious basement where [Bradbury] chose to write daily." The listing is heartwarmingly Bradbury-happy, so hopefully they'll find somebody who wants the place for what it is. Asking price is $1.495 million.
