The property, on Camino de la Costa near Avenida Cresta, at one point belonged to noted mystery writer Raymond Chandler, known mainly for creating the iconic private-eye character Philip Marlowe and his role as a Hollywood screenwriter.

He worked on the screenplay for Alfred Hitchcock's "Strangers on a Train" and co-wrote the movie "Double Indemnity." The Chicago native lived in La Jolla during the latter part of his life, which ended in 1959.

The home, which previously sold for $5.3 million on July 28, 2008, features six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. The current assessed value is $4.7 million, public documents show.

Real estate agent Dennis DeSouza represented both the buyer and the seller in this deal. In 2012, DeSouza sold Phil Mickelson's La Jolla Beach house and Drew Brees' Carmel Valley home.
