Offering as a “turn-key” business – please read the full description

Built in 1910, this historic Lawrenceville home has more than 3,000 square feet of living space PLUS A FULL BASEMENT. Original stained-glass windows welcome visitors upon entering this beautiful home. High ceilings decorated with imported African mahogany accent the beauty of the rooms on the main floor. Mahogany built-ins are found throughout the main floor. The kitchen is spacious with modern appliances and a dishwasher. An ornate mahogany staircase leads to the four bedrooms and two full bathrooms upstairs. The master en suite opens to a balcony laden with copper tile. Every hallway and bedroom has large, spacious closets offering plenty of storage on every floor.

The full basement was occupied by Elaine, who graciously gave her best to her guests. The basement has concrete floors and five rooms for storage and family living. A large pantry is at the bottom of the staircase. A fireplace and bar are in the main living area of the basement. Thought to be a speakeasy from prohibition days, the bar is intact, except for the mirror in the built-in cabinet.

Lovingly intrigued by her late husband’s Jewish heritage, Elaine decorated the house with meaningful furnishings. Modern and antique furniture mixes beautifully in every room. Dishes and dish sets are enough to host any party. Books of all genres fill every bookcase with a world of knowledge. This one-of-a-kind home and collection is being offered at online-only auction as a turn-key operation. This means a successful buyer will buy the house, contents, and client contact information. If the house does not meet reserve, it will be taken to a live, on-site auction with the house and contents sold separately.
