Location: Santa Rosa, Calif.
Price: $2.275 million
The Skinny: The cartoonist Charles Schulz, creator of the iconic "Peanuts" cartoon, purchased this Santa Rosa, Calif., spread from the Roman Catholic church and immediately set about using the on-site chapel — he married his second wife there in 1973. That chapel has been converted into a combination media room and gym, but the six-bedroom home still bears evidence of Schulz’s presence. His office, complete with typewriter, aging television, and "Peanuts" art, has been left as a sort of shrine to the famed funny pages master. The rest of the property is pretty plush, with two sizable homes totaling 8,000 square feet, two acres of well-landscaped grounds, and broad outdoor entertaining spaces, including a swimming pool.
