While it may not be possible to live inside of The Great Gatsby, you can now buy the house that F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote the novel in. Well, at least if you have $3.9 million to spare.
The 5,000-square-foot house is located in Great Necks Estates, about a 45 minute drive from Manhattan. F. Scott and his wife Zelda lived there in the early 1920s and it is where Fitzgerald is believed to have written his Great American Novel, The Great Gatsby. The novel of socialites and lavish parties was inspired by his own time going to lavish parties with socialites in Long Island, where the house is located.
You can see the listing and interior photos at Coldwell Banker’s site, where the house is listed as a single family residence with 7 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms.
