We should have known that the man who wrote "Here Comes The Sun"  would live in a house like this. The former home of Beatles guitarist George Harrison is on sale, and it's quite a looker--at least the outside. 

The Studio City, California home has a lap pool with a prism-shaped glass ceiling--which alters and deflect sunlight in all sorts of creative ways--and an indoor koi pond. 

According to the listing, the nearly 3,000 square feet three bedroom, three bathroom home is close to Hollywood, downtown, and studio city. 
But a line in the a listing, something about the property being a "great opportunity to remodel or develop into your own estate", and a lack of interior photos probably mean the home itself needs a lot of work.

The home is actually owned by security expert and author Gavin de Becker--who was friends with Harrison. It's fitting that Harrison, the most private and mysterious Beatle of all, was friends with a security expert. And this home does indeed provide what they claim to be a highly sophisticated security system.

Still, this home is forever associated with a key member of arguably the greatest band of all time, and there will be enough Beatles fans out there who may be interested in snapping it up. 

The price of 1.5 million is probably lower than it would have been a few years ago, given California's staggering home price drop and all.
