Bradbury abode

American science fiction writer Ray Bradbury died in 2012 and now the home he lived in for more than 50 years is on the market. The 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 2,500 square-foot (762 m²) house sits on a 9,500 square-foot (2896 m²) lot in the Cheviot Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, and is listed for $1.495 million (€1.093 million). Bradberry and his wife, who predeceased him, raised their 4 daughters there. The author of 27 novels and 600 short stories writes in his most famous work, Fahrenheit 451, "Everyone must leave something behind when he dies. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you're there."
