Hint: It was Clint Eastwood's directorial debut.
Calling all movie buffs: a stunning clifftop estate – and one-time setting for the famous final scene of a Clint Eastwood movie – is now on the market.
Perched on the cliffs of Carmel, California, 200 feet above the Pacific, the sprawling estate affords sweeping views of the craggy coastline and crashing waves from its two levels of decks. Eastwood fans might recognize one of those decks from the fateful final scene of the 1971 thriller Play Misty for Me, in which a radio disc jockey is stalked by an obsessive female fan. (Spoiler: It doesn't end well for her.)
Situated on a gated 1.25-acre property, the recently renovated house spans 2,781 square feet and has three bedrooms and three baths, plus a one-bed, one-bath guesthouse. While it's luxuriously updated with hardwood floors, a contemporary kitchen and outdoor fire pit, the real draw comes from the breathtaking views for which the Carmel coast is known. Glass walls, large skylights, and an open floor plan flood the home with natural light and allow for plenty of vantage points for savoring the ocean views.

Once a Carmel resident, Eastwood—who was even elected mayor of the city in 1986—included the bright and airy home in his 1970s box office hit, launching its real estate icon status. Up until just a few years ago, the same family who lived in the home when it was featured in the film still owned it. Now, the star property is up for grabs for a cool $11,900,000.
