Chuck Berry's former home in St. Louis, Missouri is on the market for a very reasonable price.

Berry bought the house, which was built in 1909, back in 1958 and lived there until the 1970s when the current owners bought it. 

While he lived there, he wrote his hits "Little Queenie," "Back in the U.S.A." "Memphis, Tennessee," "No Particular Place to Go" and "You Never Can Tell."

"Most walls whisper, these walls rock 'n' roll. ... Walk the halls of this historic manse and listen very carefully!" says the homes listing by Coldwell Banker Homes.

The three-story home sits on a property of a little more than a quarter-acre. Its includes a large kitchen, butler's pantry, an "architecturally significant" dining room, two front parlours, stained glass windows, leaded-glass-enclosed built-in bookshelves and a games room in the basement. It also has a marble bath in the master suite!
