The former home of the late gossip columnist Louella Parsons, which is known as Marson Farms, was recently sold for $719,000.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the Northridge home was originally built as a ranch for the columnist, who died in 1972 at the age of 91. The two-story French Colonial features four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in 4,465 square feet of living space, including the guest quarters, which as a separate entrance.

The house was originally part of a 28-acre farm, the source reported. The home still boasts a sun porch-family room that face the backyard lawn, a rose garden and swimming pool.

The L.A. Times stated that before securing a position as a legendarily influential Hollywood columnist, Parsons was writing social notes and a film column. The writer moved to Los Angeles after being diagnosed with tuberculosis in the mid-1920s and became a syndicated columnist for William Randolph Hearst.

The house was previously sold in 1981 for $280,000 and moving trucks might be seen outside it once again if the house is purchased soon.

Parsons won the Special Journalistic Merit Award in 1960, according to IMDB.
