A fabled West Hills compound in rustic Box Canyon, once home to a cult leader and his barefooted followers in robes, is on the market for $4.8 million.

Set on 16.5 acres, the property branded “Xanadu” and promoted for its “boundless potential” boasts 4,000 square feet of living space across several modest houses and a lodge. Combined, they offer seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms.

It was here that Krishna Venta, a small-time criminal born Francis Hernan Pencovic, proclaimed himself the second coming of Jesus Christ and established his WKFL (Wisdom, Knowledge, Faith, Love) Fountain religious sect in 1949. He predicted a global war and set out to gather 144,000 people to rebuild afterward.
