Formerly home to Richard and Patricia Anawalt, this idyllic slice of heaven is on the market for the first time since 1965. If the name "Anawalt" doesn't ring a bell, here's a primer courtesy of Realtor.com: "Richard led the family business, Anawalt Lumber, for decades. Patricia, an anthropologist who studied worldwide ethnographic clothing and founded the Center for the Study of Regional Dress at UCLA's Fowler Museum, took over her husband's role at the company when he died in 2000. She died in October."
