A California house where psychologist and LSD proponent Timothy Leary manufactured and used the hallucinogenic drug is for sale for $1.495 million.

The listing includes a description of the house that acknowledges its link to LSD and Leary, who died in 1996.

A post that describes the listing says Leary lived in the house in the 1960s with group called “The Brotherhood of Eternal Love … Together, they inhabited a lifestyle committed to using the drug while practicing their preferred religion – hiking deep into the mountains while celebrating the beauty and wonderment of nature.”

Leary’s former home is located on nearly 80 acres of land known as Fobes Ranch at 55101 State Highway 74 in the San Jacinto Mountains.

The listed property is a three-bedroom, three-bathroom house with a two-car garage and a guesthouse. Thee total living space exceeds 2,450 square feet.

Listing agent Timothy McTavish of Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty readily admits that Leary and other residents of the property regularly used LSD there but emphasizes that the house’s hallucinogenic era ended about a half century ago. []Mike Seemuth
