Lizzie Bordens Massachusetts Mansion Can Be Yours For $849KRest your head in the former home of the ax-wielding murderer… if you dare to close your eyes.
Lizzie Borden may have had an ax, but she also had exquisite taste in real estate. And now, you can cash in on the Massachusetts murderesss famed Maplecroft Mansion, which just hit the market for $849.000.
The eight-bed, four-bath home, which is located in Fall River, MAs Highlands Historic District, is a stunning Queen Anne Victorian most people would kill for. (Lizzie included, of course.)
Commissioned in 1898, the home was purchased by Borden and her sister Emma in 1893 after she was acquitted of murdering her parents with an ax. Perfectly restored to its impeccable Victorian style, the 3935-square-foot property includes the ornate details one would expect from the time period: tin ceilings in the old-fashioned kitchen, coffered ceilings in the parlor, stunning mantles, and custom millwork. Each room of the home is reminiscent of the time period, with unique pieces of Victorian history. Thats right- it comes fully furnished with art, furniture and accessories straight out of turn-of-the-century New England. With Halloween coming up, youll have plenty of costume ideas, at least.
Borden remained in the home until her death in 1927, and her life story continues to enthrall the public through TV, film, and even a Lizzie Borden-themed opera. Most recently, shes been portrayed by actress Christina Ricci on the Lifetime series The Lizzie Borden Chronicles.
