I was browsing through the MLS listings when I saw some old familiar pictures and a new low price that made me do a double take. Old Lion Manor, a Hidden Hills, California estate once owned by "The Exorcist" author William Peter Blatty hit the block last year at a hefty price of $27.5 million. Old Lion Manor is a three acre playground that includes a waterfall with a cave, statuary, a theater with seating for 28, a spa with a massage room, wine cellar with a tasting area and more. The facilities include a tennis court, volleyball court, equestrian ring and stables and a chessboard with life-size pieces. There is even a mechanical bull. The house has been rented out for parties (numerous photos of the pool stuffed with people can be found online) and the interior has a bit of a theme park feel with elaborate murals and heavy furniture but it is a pretty amazing spread. How low did it go? This home is now listed at $8.65 million. Think it will find a buyer now?
