James Ellroy’s House is for Sale

jamesellroyhouseJames Ellroy‘s residence in the Hollywood Hills has hit the market for just shy of $1.4 million.

“A lovely Spanish Hacienda in the hills,” the 3 bedroom includes an office, where the author of The Black Dahlia works. In the real estate listing, you can see his bookshelves and framed photos of various book covers. The Los Angeles Times points out that the house wouldn’t be out of place in L.A. Confidential. Check it out:

The movie version of “L.A. Confidential” used the architecturally significant Lovell House, designed by Richard Neutra, as Patchett’s modern-minimalist digs. That was a departure from the book, which described Patchett’s place as “a big pseudo-Spanish: one story, low slate roof.”
