Ray Bradbury lived in the Cheviot Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles for more than 50 years. 

His 2,500-square-foot home had three bedrooms, was painted in a bright yellow hue and was built in 1937. It was also loaded with original details to suit the famous author's fancy.

But when Bradbury died in 2012, the home was sold, and now, the abode is being torn down. 

Carolyn Kellogg has written about the home for the Los Angeles Times, and she joins Take Two.
