Location: Santa Barbara, Calif.
The Skinny: The novelist Sue Grafton—whose wildly successful "alphabet series" of mysteries is set to continue next month with the release of "W" is for Wasted—has listed her longtime Santa Barbara mansion. The Mediterranean-style manor, designed in 1927 by local architectural luminary Chester Carjola, includes six bedrooms and 10 bathrooms and sits on 2.5 prime acres. A guest house and a pool house complete the $10M offering, which is even larger than a previous home Grafton once described as her "playhouse," fully stocked with a "pool table in the basement and a jukebox loaded with oldies."
