The tidy house staged as the subject property in the movie "House of Sand and Fog" has come on the market at $1,999,000.
Although the Academy Award-nominated film, starring Ben Kingsley, was set in San Francisco, the home sits on a lot of more than 1 acre in Malibu with ocean views. The 1,239-square-foot house, built in 1955, has two bedrooms, 1 1/2 bathrooms, beamed ceilings and a brick fireplace.
The 2003 film's tragic plot centered on an ownership dispute. In real life, however, this is a probate sale, and court approval is not needed.
