Buy Ursula K. Le Guin's old house in Berkeley

The "magnificent" home in Berkeley, California, formerly lived in by author Ursula K. Le Guin is on the market for $4.1m. Pictured above, the writing room, though the press releasy stories about it are vague on when and how long she lived there (Wikipedia suggests not past her twenties) . Below, a video tour of the dwelling and its surroundings.

The house spans 3,686 square feet with rooms for gathering and other rooms for private contemplation. Built with natural materials, it has been restored with great attention to the original design while upgrading with modern features and amenities.

"Broad graceful bracketed eaves and Swiss scroll-sawn wooden balconies and decks look out onto San Francisco and Golden Gate views," according to the listing.
