Ledger, who continued to wow moviegoers with postmortem performances like his iconic portrayal of The Joker in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight, was a different kind of young Hollywood star. He was less interested in the status quo and more concerned with doing indelible work. This is a major reason he remains beloved today.
Ledger also had unique taste is housing. And now would-be homeowners or investors with deep pockets can own the property nicknamed "The Tree House" - at a listing price of $2.995 million.
The photo above demonstrates how the property earned its nickname. The 1,861 square foot home is surrounded by so many sycamore trees, it's easy to feel the secluded magic of living in a forest. And with an additional 2,500 square feet out of exterior living space, including a movie lounge with projector screen, a dining and barbecue space (below) and multiple seating areas, this home clearly celebrates the great outdoors.
Ledger and Williams lived in the two bedroom, two bathroom home until they ended their engagement in 2007. After actor died in Manhattan in January 2008, the home was sold to soap star Adrian Bellani that July for $2.5 million.
