The former New Hampshire home of J.D. Salinger is for sale. The 2,900 square-foot home with 4 bedrooms and five bathrooms in Cornish, NH is listed for $679,000. It is said to be perfect for those seeking privacy.
After the immense popular success of his novel Catcher in the Rye, Salinger left New York City and moved to this house, where he began to develop his reputation as a recluse. Word is Salinger wrote every day in this house, but he published only slightly after he moved to New Hampshire and then not at all over the last half decade of his life. Salinger moved into this 4-bedroom after separating from his first wife (Sylvia Welter) and before marrying his second (Claire Douglas). It was 1953, the same year his almost equally famous Nine Stories was published.
