WESTPORT, Conn. -- Looking for a place to live that could inspire you to write the Great American Novel? You just might get it at 244 Compo Road in Westport where F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda spent the summer of 1920, which just hit the market.

Listed by Higgins Group, the six-bedroom, 5,584-square foot colonial farmhouse was originally built in the mid to late 1700s. It is on the market for $2.825 million.

A massive wine cellar and tasting room that holds 5,500 bottles would have been right up the alley of the hard-partying, Prohibition-defying "Great Gatsby" author.

The home sits on 1.03 acres has been completely modernized with a state-of-the-art kitchen and bathrooms as well as a swimming pool and pool house.

The back of the house faces Longshore Country Club. It was given a Westport Historic Preservation Award in 2004.
