NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - The house where Martha Stewart grew up in Nutley, N.J., is for sale.

The three-bedroom, 1,922-square-foot house, built in 1930, went on the block this week at an asking price of $549,000.

Martha Stewart, 62, was convicted March 5 for lying about a well-timed sale of ImClone Systems stock in December 2001 and obstructing justice. She faces possible prison time when she is sentenced June 17.

However, that June 17 hearing will likely be postponed while lawyers for Martha Stewart and Bacanovic ask for new trials. In late May, government witness Larry Stewart was charged with perjury and Martha Stewart's legal team indicated it would ask for a new trial.

Stewart's last name was Kostyra when she lived in the house as a child. Her mother sold it to the current owners in 1987.

Century 21 listing agent Pat Kraven-O'Connell has not started showing the home and she is not sure how quickly the home will sell. "It's an unknown thing until we get it on the market," she said.
