LIVE LIKE MARTHA
Martha Stewart's childhood home in Nutley, N.J. so often idealized in the pages of Martha Stewart Living is for sale at an asking price of $549,000. The embattled domestic guru lived at 86 Elm Place from age 3 through high school. And even though Stewart's mom sold the three-bedroom abode to its present owners back in 1987, the place still reflects Martha's green thumb, boasting fig trees and a holly bush planted and pruned by the diva herself. But sorry, all you looky-loos: There'll be no open house, and only pre-qualified buyers will be shown the home's interior. Presumably, the mortgage closing costs would include property taxes and the fee for an exorcist.
