Warren home of author Philip Roth is for sale
 
 
WARREN – The luxury real estate firm of Klemm Real Estate has listed the long-time country home of famed author Philip Roth for $2.95 million. The property consists of 147± acres and is a mix of pastures and woods peppered with antique stone walls. The centerpiece of the property is a c1790 antique home with 3 bedrooms, 3 fireplaces and many original antique features. Additionally, there is a barn and pool, as well as Roth’s charming writing cottage with wood stove.

“This is a rare offering. Not only was this the residence of one of the great authors of our time, but this is a magical property in a serene and utterly private setting with a wonderful antique home commanding over so much acreage,” said Peter Klemm, broker of the firm and listing agent of the property.

Roth, who died in 2018, was the noted author of more than 20 novels as well as numerous short stories. He earned a master’s degree from the University of Chicago and was also awarded honorary degrees from such universities as Harvard, Brown and Columbia. Eight of Roth’s books, including Goodbye, Columbus and The Human Stain, were adapted as films. He won the Pulitzer Prize for his 1997 novel American Pastoral.
