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."
