F. Scott Fitzgerald House Up for Grabs

If you are a writer (or a musician or artist) then it’s likely you’ve dreamed of living the “Jazz Age” lifestyle of F. Scott Fitzgerald.

If you happen to have half a million dollars to spare, now you can!

F. Scott Fitzgerald's town house at 1307 Park Ave. in Baltimore is up for sale. For $450,000, it could be yours.

This is one of two Baltimore homes F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald lived in during their five years in Baltimore. (Zelda burned their first one down while dispensing of papers.)

He’d already enjoyed the success of The Great Gatsby, known by many as the Great American Novel, when he lived in this home. He lived here when he published Tender is the Night.

What a perfect place for a writing residency, visiting authors, and literary events!
