F. Scott Fitzgerald played the social scene on two American coasts and several European cities but it was in Maryland where he had some of his most prolific years as an independent writer (as opposed to those years he was churning out prose as a Hollywood hack). He lived in this house during the thirties when his books Tender Is The Night and Taps At Reveille were published, plus numerous essays that were later collected in The Crack-Up. The home is now on the market as an estate sale and comes with its own blue plaque on the exterior giving the details on Fitzgerald's time there. The home is a four bed, three bath with 3,600 square feet asking $450,00. It still has heaps of the original details from its 1900 birth year. See the ornate fireplaces in most of the rooms, tall windows, french doors, and floorplan just perfect for a literary salon.
