ELLSWORTH, Wis., Nov. 4 (UPI) -- Author and radio star Garrison Keillor is selling his property in rural Wisconsin for $1 million, the (St. Paul, Minn.) Pioneer Press reported Friday.

The "Prairie Home Companion" star lives full time in St. Paul.

Keillor is selling his 11.5-acre getaway along the St. Croix River in Pierce County, Wis. The property includes clay tennis courts, a nearly 1,900-square-foot log home, a log guest home, a studio and a detached office where he wrote his novel "Wobegon Boy," the newspaper said.

"It's in the woods -- it feels like a hamlet," Joyce Peterson, a Realtor with Coldwell Banker Burnet, told the Pioneer Press.

Peterson said she did not know why Keillor decided to put the property on the market six weeks ago.
