(TMZ) – The farm that inspired E.B. White’s classic children’s novel, "Charlotte’s
Web," has hit the market, and looks to be a great deal.

The 44-acre saltwater farm in Brooklin, Maine — where White lived when he
wrote ‘Charlotte’ — has been listed at $3.7 million.

The property includes a farmhouse, a guest house and a barn — the inspiration
for Wilbur and Charlotte’s hangout. White bought the estate in 1933, and lived
there until he died in 1985.

The listing agent, Martha Dischinger of Down East Properties, said the current
owners are only selling because they’re in their 80s. FYI, there’s no livestock
on the grounds.
