David Oyelowo as Martin Luther King in Selma Pathé

Selma may have missed out on the best film Oscar, but fans still have a chance to be part of big screen history after the home that featured in the civil rights drama was put on sale.

The five-bedroom property, which doubled for the Selma, Alabama home of Sullivan and Richie Jean Jackson in the Martin Luther King biopic, has gone on the market for $499,000 (£323,000).

The stunning 1930s Craftsman style house features staging put in place for the film shoot, three bedrooms as well as an office with a separate entrance. It also boasts plenty of period details including a claw-foot bathtub and two pedestal sinks in the master bathroom, ray ceilings, fireplaces, French doors and a wooden staircase.

Played by Niecy Nash and Kent Faulcon in Ava DuVernay's film, the Jacksons were friends of King, and the iconic activist planned his famous Selma-to-Montgomery marches at their home.

Although the property was staged to look like the real Jackson house in Selma, the original property, where MLK took meetings with many well-known leaders, held phone calls with President Lyndon B Johnson and watched the passing of the Voting Rights Act on TV, is expected to be turned into a museum.

Meanwhile, rapper Common and singer John Legend are celebrating after their track Glory took home the Best Song at 87th Academy Awards.
