harriet2Have you ever wanted to live like Harriet the Spy? The fictional home of Louise Fitzhugh’s feisty protagonist has been put on the market.

This New York City-based brownstone features an asking price of $4.95 million. According to the cocoran group website, an open house has been scheduled for June 14.

Here’s more from The New York Post: “The Queen Anne-style corner house, built in the early 1880s, comes with five bedrooms and 3½ bathrooms. The home has lots of light, and views of Gracie Mansion and the East River. Its best features include large rooms, high ceilings, formal living and dining rooms, a windowed eat-in kitchen, a center hall skylight and built-in bookcases “on every floor,” according to the listing — along with a garden.” (via Apartment Therapy)
