LA JOLLA (KUSI) – Looking for a new home?

You can live in this famous La Jolla mansion with your spouse, or you can live in it with a mouse.

Dr. Seuss’ La Jolla home is on sale for the first time in 75 years, with a price tag of about $19 million.

Known to his neighbors simply as “Ted,” Geisel bought the property in 1948 and lived there until his death in 1991. The home was later donated to UCSD in 2018.
