Via The Real Estalker: Playwright, writer and actor Gore Vidal, who is as famous for his work as he is for his well-known family, has just put his Hollywood Hills home on the market. Vidal's first book was published when he was just 19, and he's starred in movies such as Gattaca, Bob Roberts and With Honors after running for congress in 1960 and California governor in 1982. His cousin is Al Gore and his step-sister is Jaqueline Kennedy. Vidal purchased his Outpost Estates home in 1977 for a mere $149,500 and is now asking for $3.495 million for the private Mediterranean property.
The 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom house rests on a 20,000 square-foot lot. According to the official listing the historical home features a magnificent living room, high ceilings, a beautiful dining room, meditation room, a library and an office. The outdoor area has a koi pond, patio fit for entertaining and a pool. The gated property also boasts a guest house, gardens and an ample parking area.
