Buy the Home of “Peanuts” Creator Charles Schulz

Home of Charles Schulz

Add the home of Peanuts creator Charles Schulz to the list of famous animator and cartoonist homes that have popped up on the real estate market recently. The 7,894-square-foot, 6-bedroom home was built in 1949 and is situated on two acres in northern California’s Sonoma County.

According to AOL Real Estate, Schulz purchased the home for $250,000 in 1973 from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Santa Rosa. Schulz and his wife Jeannie sold the home in 1996. The second owner listed the place way back in November 2009, and the price has now dropped from $2.9 million to $2.275 million. From the photos, which you can VIEW HERE, the place appears to be in need of an overhaul.

The home has a nice stained-glass window in a “chapel” room, which the real estate people suggest can be removed and replaced with a big-screen TV. They’ve even created a mock-up of what this new den of Godless debauchery could look like:

  • “the place appears to be in need of an overhaul.”

    Whew – you’re tough. . .looks like “move-in” condition to me !

    • amid

      I’m currently in construction mode at my place. Everything looks like a teardown to my eyes right now! =)

      • Chris Sobieniak

        Sad some people don’t appreciate stain glass windows much anymore but that “Godless debauchery” certainly fits the makeover!

      • Doug

        Mybe the new owner could have the 20th Century Fox logo done in stained glass. I’ll bet that original stained glass would fetch a pretty penny.

  • Oh, to have 2.275 million dollars…

  • Yeah, the place looks pretty good. And the price is right, too. Now about the commute to Toronto…

  • that looks like a grand spot for a party or three. I have to say that no recent notion has caught my attention concerning lack of taste than this suggestion of ripping out a stained glass window in favour of a massive telly. Sure it may be pleasant to enjoy the dappled light playing through the different coloured glass, casting toffee wrapper hues across the faces of your smiling family… but who needs that when you can watch UFC larger than in real life?

    Didn’t he have his studio there? Wonder what happened to it? I once saw some “60 min.” -style “Shulz at home” video feature on him, and of course a big section of it was in his studio.

      His studio space is currently set up in the Charles Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, CA.

    Perhaps the studio was shipped and reassembled in the lobby of Hostess cakes or Met Life.

    Boy, Amid, I don’t see how anyone could live in such a dump. (But I’d like to give it a try.)

  • yoni

    all that from working for peanuts?!

  • Gerard de Souza

    I’m pretty old fashioned. The replacing the stained glass is tacky. Another trend I can’t stand in homes is putting the TV above the fireplace.

  • Johnno

    It’s a lovely home. Hopefully a Catholic person buys it and makes use of the chapel room. I’d personally love to have one to pray in.

    Laughed at “Godless debauchery”

  • Iritscen

    If there’s anything that this and the previous post have taught me, it’s that there’s good money in not being funny.

    • Iritscen

      Er, by “previous post” I meant the Seth MacFarlane one.

  • I can’t decide: Walt’s or Charles’? Do these homes come furnished? I was trying to picture our furniture in Walt Disney’s home, and it wasn’t quite the same as the images.

  • Dominick

    Good Grief
