The Smiths’ former St. Clair Shores house hit the market Monday with a selling price of $499,000. An open house is scheduled from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday.

The two-story house is at 22501 Beach St., just north of 10 Mile. The 2,116-square-foot “Storybook” home, as described by the Realtor, sits on a canal and is a very short distance from Lake St. Clair.

Several stories in Patti Smith’s memoir, “M Train,” released in 2015, took place at the house.
