The Kauai estate of the late author Michael Crichton (“Jurassic Park,” “The Andromeda Strain”) is on the market for $12 million, reports the Wall Street Journal.

Although Crichton was battling cancer and receiving chemotherapy treatments, he was expected to recover, but then died unexpectedly in 2008 at age 66. As a result, Crichton’s two, side-by-side Hawaii estates are on the market with one selling last December for $10.1 million. That leaves this estate, which is sited on 1.2 acres in coveted Hanalei Bay.

According to the home description, it was built in 1926 for a prominent Kauai physician “…when the affluent traveled by horseback to vacation at Hanalei Bay.” It still maintains the feel of a classic plantation estate whose verandas overlook pristine grounds of carpet-like green lawns, Three parcels are included — one which is vacant. The main home, which was remodeled in 2002, is 3,000 sq ft and has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Also on the grounds is a guest cottage that contains two bedrooms and one and a half baths. Plus, there’s a yoga studio and a three-car garage.

While the property is fully air-conditioned, there appears to be ceiling fans in each room, perhaps as more of an aesthetic in capturing the 1926 plantation feel.
