Well, old sport, now you can live that West Egg fantasy life. This over the top mansion on Long Island was the inspiration for the titular character's estate in the 2013 film adaptation of The Great Gatsby. And the price? You'll need Gatsby's fortune to match, because this place is listed for $85 million.

When the classic Fitzgerald novel was being reimagined for the big screen, the film's set designers took their cues for the fictional West Egg abode from this very real 1928 mansion in Kings Point, Long Island. The place boasts 18 bedrooms and 32 bathrooms across its expansive 56,000 square feet.

The estate encompasses the main house and two separate guest houses. Spread across eight acres, it includes Japanese and English gardens and koi ponds, a 250 foot private dock (that's suitable for a yacht up to 200 feet long), an indoor lap pool, a lazy river, an outdoor pool with a slide and swim-up bars, a full tennis court, bowling alley, electronic casino, in-home hair salon, shooting range, multiple (yes, multiple) wine cellars with a tasting room, saunas and steam rooms (plural!), oh, and smart home technology.

If that wasn't enough, there's also a two-story garage that fits nine vehicles and comes with a hydraulic lift. You can't see the green light of Daisy Buchanon's place, but you can see the New York City skyline.

The property was home to Russian billionaire Tamir Sapir, who made his fortune in real estate and died in 2014, according to Mansion Homes. And funnily enough, this place is on Pond Road, but there's a Gatsby Lane just a few streets over.

Fitzgerald lived on Long Island himself for a time, in a place not nearly as grand, but located in nearby Great Neck. The property was for sale for nearly $4 million back in 2015.

Cheers, old sport
