Location: Middletown, N.J.
Price: No Reserve, Absolute Auction
The Skinny: The national brokerage firm Keller Williams has decided to enter the auctions market with Supreme Auctions and is opening their foray into that business with this brick manse in New Jersey, about an hour south of NYC. The Georgian-style estate was built in 1916 by architect John Russell Pope, the man behind the Jefferson Memorial, and is located across the street from the Navesink Country Club. Measuring 12,000 square feet, the mansion has some spectacularly well preserved segements, but few rooms that couldn't use some work with the decor. The mirror-and-brass bar area looks particularly dated, as does the master bed, and the dust on the floors can't be doing much to inspire bidders. Then again, the bones are there to create a stunning suburban estate, particularly given its waterfront location, and a buyer could scoop this place up for cheap, as it's being sold in a no reserve absolute auction on June 19.
