If you want to prove you’re the biggest Swifty of them all, then you may want to put your money where your mouth is. Taylor Swift’s childhood home in Reading, Pennsylvania  — the house where songs including “Love Story” and “Teardrops On My Guitar” were rumored to have been written —  is currently for sale, and it can be yours for just under $1 million.

The house is a 1929 5-bed, 4-bath Georgian Colonial-style home that sits on a massive .75-acre lot. In the backyard, there’s a pool, trampoline, and raised-bed garden, and the property also comes with a detached 2-car garage.

Inside, much of the house’s antique character remains. Crown molding, rich hardwood floors, pocket doors, wood paneling, built-ins, fireplaces, and more details make this place the stately home it is.

The home last sold for $700,000 in 2013 (and looked a bit different than it does now). The current owners painted the exterior brick white and updated some of the interiors. You can check out the updates the current owners made in the last 10 years via the RE/MAX listing.

The buyers already agreed to a $100,000 price drop since the house was first put on the market in Feb., so perhaps patience will pay off. Sure, you may have to pull a few of your fellow Swifties into the deal to make it happen, but being able to live in the same house baby Taylor did all those years ago? You know all too well that would be the ultimate experience.
