TV host Huell Howser famously exposed California with bug-eyed wonder, but kept one little piece of it to himself -- his desert hideway ... which just hit the market one year after his death.

Real estates sources tell us ... Howser's bachelor pad in Twentynine Palms just went on the market ... for $395K. 

Huell died from cancer in Jan. 2013 ... and his Estate stands to make some good cash off the sale of the 2 BR, 2.5 BA ranch home. We're told he bought it in 1997 for $160K ... then completely renovated the pad.

The "California's Gold" host called it his "dream home."  Check out the pics ... "You are in for a treat."

There are nothing but Marines in 29Palms. It's way out there up Hwy 62 off the way into Palm Springs. I lived in Yucca Valley which was about 20 miles away from 29 Palms. Hot as hell in the summer and cold as a mofo in the winter. Snow too....

Correct Philosopher. Twentynine Palms is in a high elevation in the Mojave Desert. (Southern California does not automatically equal "ocean".) At first I thought the house appeared way too dark in some of the rooms, then I noticed (duh) some of those pics were taken at night. Still way too stark, sandy, and cold for me.

This is one of those very local things that TMZ doesn't realize most of the country will know nothing about. Huell is a legend in Southern California and it was really sad when he died, but why would someone in New York, Florida, or wherever know about him. For those that don't know he hosted a show on PBS where he went around to interesting out of the way places in Southern California to show sides of the region most of us didn't know about. The fact that he was an eternally optimistic gay man with a strong Southern accent added to his charm.
