Calling all literati and English majors with decent paychecks: You have a chance to own a home once graced by F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald.

The Bolton Hill home where Fitzgerald lived during a stint during the 1930s and wrote "Tender Is the Night,"  just went on the market in an estate sale.

The handsome rowhouse at 1307 Park Ave. has four bedrooms, four baths and 3,600 square feet of pure conversation starter.

The ad on Estately boasts "gracious & elegant" living and "unadulterated" original details. There are porches overlooking a private garden, a garage and even a plaque mentioning the Fitzgeralds.

There's a charming front room with period character. Tall ceilings. Moldings and spectacular fireplaces. There's what looks like a library where one can imagine one's books going where Fitzgerald might have placed his own.

All it will cost for this piece of history is $450,000 -- asking.

Slip in to see it before the Super Bowl. An open house is set for Feb. 3, noon to 2 p.m.

See the listing.
