Cartoonist Charles Schulz passed away 10 years ago this month, but Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang lives on in the hearts of many of Schulz's fans worldwide.

The Santa Rosa, Calif., home in which Schulz penned many of his comic strips has been on the market since November for $2.9 million. But attention Peanuts fans: the asking price is being dropped to $2.275 million, broker Gus Kyriakos of Pacific Union tells me.

The reason for the price drop is that the home was originally being offered with an adjoining 2-acre buildable lot, but that parcel is now being marketed separately for an additional $600,000, Kyriakos says.

Mr. Schulz purchased the home for around $250,000 in 1973, and lived there in the 1970s, Mr. Kyriakos says. The current owner, who bought the house in 1996, is the second owner after Schulz, he adds.
