The Good life

Can you look at these photo's and tell what they have in common

Robert Redford- gorgeous actor- photo by studio

Some favorite books-photo by Barb-avid reader

With this photo?

This is 6 Gateway Dr in Great Neck, New York and it can be yours for a cool
$3,888,888. I am a huge fan of F. Scott Fitzgerald (Zelda too)!
He and Zelda lived here from 1922-1924. He wrote 3 chapters of The Great Gatsby in this house.
Of course the first photo is Robert as Jay Gatsby. I know you know that!!

Between the two of them, they had so much talent and such tortured lives.
They lived life large and not in a great way.

The house was built in 1918 and of course has been remodeled many times.

Is this not gorgeous?

Spectacular kitchen. I would have loved to see the original one.

The stories those walls and floors could tell!

 Love the cow!

What does 3,888,888 buy you? 7 bedrooms. 6.5 bathrooms  and so much history.
A modest 5,174 sq ft. Can you even imagine? 

I am on a hunt to find some original photo's. If there is a will, there is a way.

If you are a reader, try to pick up the books in the 2nd pic. They are worth your time.

Whoo hoo.... first post for June. On a roll.

Big hugs

That's a gorgeous house - it really would be interesting to see it as it was when the Fitzgeralds lived there.

I'm sure it would be interesting to go back in time and see it as it once was.
