"Charlotte's Web" farm is for sale. You know, Homer Zuckerman's old place, which is really a 44-acre saltwater farm in Maine where E.B. White penned the beloved children's book. They're asking $3.7 million.

The Brooklin home where White lived until his death in 1985 includes a barn that was the setting for the story featuring a pig named Wilbur and a spider named Charlotte.

How Wilbur, scared he'll end up on the dinner table, hatches a plan with Charlotte, who lives in his pen, to prevent that was made into a 2006 animated movie starring the voices of Dakota Fanning, Julia Roberts, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Redford and several others. It was narrated by the recently late Sam Shepard.

The home dates to the late 1700s. White and his wife, Katharine, bought it in 1933.

Down East Properties listing agent Martha Dischinger says current owners Robert and Mary Gallant, of Anderson, South Carolina, are ready to sell after more than three decades of ownership.

She said Wednesday the property retains many historical touches and the owners maintained the gardens tended by Katharine White before her death.

E.B. White also wrote "Stuart Little," another children's book.
