This late 18th-century property comes with more than just 18.7 acres: It has a history traced back to one of the greatest American authors of all time.

The website reported that Samuel Langhorne Clemens — a.k.a. Mark Twain — did not live on this piece of land, but the one next door. After his wife died, Twain lived at Stormfield, his country home located right outside of Redding, Conn., in the early 1900s. He bought the neighboring 325 Redding Road for his youngest daughter, Jean, according to the property’s listing.

Now, 325 Redding Road is listed for sale for $1,850,000, and offers an antique farmhouse, barn, and studio on nearly 19 acres of land. The five-bedroom, three-bathroom, 3,645-square-foot farmhouse has been completely renovated.
