If you are a writer (or a musician or artist) then itâ€™s likely youâ€™ve dreamed of living the â€œJazz Ageâ€ lifestyle of F. Scott Fitzgerald.
If you happen to have half a million dollars to spare, now you can!
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.)
Heâ€™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!
