Celebrity homes is back with one of the dream homes that inspired a great book. There’s no green light across the lake, but this house is as close to Gatsby as it gets. The luxury home where author F. Scott Fitzgerald first started writing The Great Gatsby can now be yours.
The Great Neck, N.Y. home has seven bedrooms and six luxury bathrooms, taking up more than 5,000 square feet, and includes access to an exclusive country club. It was built in 1918 in a Mediterranean style, but has been updated with a modern touch multiple times since. It’s now on sale for a very specific $3,888,888.
The famous author lived at 6 Gateway Drive for two years, from 1922 to 1924, hanging out with wealthy neighbors who likely inspired the characters in his novel. He started writing the novel in a room above the garage, and completed the first three chapters while living there. In 1924, he and wife Zelda moved to Paris.
