Here is a great property to consider if you are a movie fan. Author of The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda rented this wonderful Great Neck property in the roaring twenties from October 1922 until April 1924. This is where Fitzgerald started to write the great American novel and finished writing three chapters. He was said to have used the room above the garage as his office. The Mediterranean-style home built in 1918 is now up for sale for $3.9 million.
The mansion with more than 5,000 square-feet of living space boasts seven-bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. Its well-appointed interiors feature a wood-burning fireplace, a second-floor balcony, hardwood floors, arched windows, a gourmet kitchen, a den, a maid’s room and a bar in the basement. The exteriors feature well-manicured gardens, a terrace for outdoor entertaining, a driveway and a two garage.
An additional perk new owners going to enjoy massively is the access to the exclusive country club. The Great Neck Estate where it is located also employ a private police force.
Not only F. Scott Fitzgerald started writing the Great Gatsby in this house, he and his wife regularly attended social events their wealthy neighbors organized. Many of the characters in the book are inspired by the neighbors while their opulent homes gave inspiration to fictitious mansions. The property is listed with Coldwell Bankers.
