Ever wanted an inspirational place to write? Look no further, LitReactorVerse! You can now own an iconic home in which to write your bestseller … if you’re willing to shell out $3.8 million, that is.

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s New York home—the same place where the infamous author is believed to have written The Great Gatsby—is up for sale, reports The Guardian. Coldwater Banker Residential Brokerage announced on Wednesday that interested parties can purchase the Long Island manor for the aforementioned price of $3.8m.

The Mediterranean-style home boasts 5,000 square feet and includes seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, a music room, and multiple fireplaces. Originally built in 1918, the estate is located about 20 miles from Manhattan in the village of Great Neck Estates.

Along with his wife Zelda, Fitzgerald owned the manor from 1922 to 1924.

Prospective buyers, be warned: you’ll be required to let me come vacation there at least once per year. Don’t worry; I’m a polite houseguest!
