The Concord, New Hampshire, house where J.D. Salinger lived in the 50s and 60s is on the market.  This is the 2,900-square-foot property he bought in his successful attempt to escape the limelight after the publication of Catcher in the Rye.

FORMERLY THE HOME OF WRITER J.D. SALINGER, THIS CHARMING HOUSE IS SET IN AN ENCHANTING GARDEN OF FLOWERS AND TREES. LAND ON BOTH SIDES OF THE ROAD ENSURES PRIVACY. DRAMATIC VIEWS OF MT. ASCUTNEY. LOVELY STREAM. GROOMED TRAILS THROUGH THE PARKLIKE WOODS. SEPARATE APARTMENT ABOVE THE GARAGE. GARDEN SPOTS TO SIT AND DREAM. A FABULOUS NEIGHBORHOOD!
–From the listing.

The house is listed at $679,000, which seems insanely cheap, until you notice that it’s assessed at about half that amount.  You can see the listing at the Martha E. Diebold Real Estate.
