The house which Ernest Hemingway wrote his final novels before commiting suicide has been listed on the National Register-and it it still more or less exactly as he left it.

Hemingway's wife Mary Hemingway gave the Idaho based house to The Nature Conservancy after the writer took his own life on the property in 1961.

The Conservancy decided to list the house, which they have been using as an office, as it provides valuable insights into the authors way of life. 

The house is still full of the Hemingway's possesions and remains relatively untouched-his boots are even still sitting by the fireplace as he left them.

The house has rarely had any visitors due to zoning restrictions-but the Conservancy now hope to start a writer-in-residence programme.
