You Can Own The House Where Fitzgerald Wrote Gatsby

In the housing market? Live near New York City? Have a spare $3.8 million?

If that’s you, then you could be the owner of the house where F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote The Great Gatsby.

The Fitzgeralds rented the house, located in Great Neck just outside New York City, for two years in the early 1920s. He started writing the manuscript while living there and finished the novel when they moved to France.

The beautiful home has 7 bedrooms and 6.5 baths.

Can you imagine? Sitting under the same roof that Fitzgerald once wrote Gatsby? Well, for 3.8 million, you can do just that!

Anybody willing to loan me a little cash?

A few more photos of the house below. You can see all the photos over at Zillow.

  10. I fear the depression he might have fallen into had he ever seen that patio furniture.

  16. If ever a house were to be described as so very Gatsby… I could imagine myself swigging champagne on the lawn!

  17. “My own house was an eyesore, but it was a small eyesore, and it had been overlooked, so I had a view of the water, a partial view of my neighbor’s lawn, and the consoling proximity of millionaires — all for eighty dollars a month.”
