The Exorcist author William Peter Blatty's House for Sale

I love when 'famous' houses go on the market. For me, these are usually connected to authors, artists, historical people, or popular culture folk. Here's a new one that just came on the market: Exorcist author William Peter Blatty's house is on sale, just in time for Halloween.

From the LA Times:

Just in time for Halloween, the Maryland house where “The Exorcist” author William Peter Blatty lived for 16 years is on the market. And it could be yours for just $3.2 million.

The six-bedroom Georgian Colonial in the Burning Tree neighborhood in Bethesda was home to 

Blatty and his wife, actress and former Los Angeles Rams cheerleader Julie Blatty, from 2001 until the author's death in January.

William Peter Blatty was a prolific novelist and screenwriter best known for his 1971 novel The Exorcist, about two priests determined to chase away a demon that has possessed a 12-year-old girl in the Georgetown area of Washington, D.C. The book has sold more than 13 million copies.
