The Cheviot Drive home where Ray Bradbury lived and wrote for 50 years has been listed for sale at $1.495 million. It's your typical Cheviot Hills 4-bedroom, 3-bath with 2,400 square feet and a decent backyard. His writing room in the basement is billed as the place where Bradbury wrote his most famous works, including "Fahrenheit 451," "The Martian Chronicles" and others. That is, when he wasn't typing "Fahrenheit 451" on pay-by-the-minute typewriters in the UCLA Library.

Open house is Sunday 2-5 at 10265 Cheviot Drive. The listing.

Bradbury died on June 5, 2012
