OXFORD, England (AP) _ The house where former President Clinton lived during his time as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University is for sale _ for the very un-studentlike price of $1 million.
Clinton rented a ground-floor room in the building at 46 Leckford Road in leafy north Oxford from 1968 to 1970. The building has since been converted into a four-bedroom, two-bathroom family home.
``We are pleased to be offering for sale a piece of contemporary Oxford history,'' said Giles Lawton, director of John D. Wood & Co. ``The house is located in a very popular and convenient part of the city and we anticipate strong interest being generated.''
Clinton is not the building's only link with history. Among his housemates was future deputy secretary of state Strobe Talbot, and the house reportedly was later rented by Howard Marks, one of Britain's most notorious drug dealers.
