Elizabeth Gilbert, writer of the best-selling memoir “Eat, Pray, Love” is gearing up for a new chapter sans her Italianate Victorian mini-estate in Frenchtown, New Jersey.

The four-bedroom home at 3 Reading Avenue will soon hit the market asking $999,000.

The home is crowned by a copper roof and a 1,400-square-foot “Skybrary” takes the place of an attic — the spot where Gilbert wrote her bestseller. On the opposite end, a terra-cotta Brazilian honeycomb holds 500 wine bottles in the basement.

“It Was The Most Expensive Place in town back when I bought it, but it always has been,” Gilbert told the times of the pad. “It and its twin next door were built to be the grandest homes in town.”

The home, which boasts a kitchen with a wood-burning stove, powder room with an automated Japanese toilet/bidet and a Balinese lava stone sink, also comes with three quarters of an acre, valley and river views. A wraparound porch with Brazilian plank floors rounds out the pad.

The home, which is is open by appointment only to brokers and buyers, is also up for grabs fully furnished, according to the Times. [NYT]Julie Strickland
