A house designed by renowned Montclair architect Dudley S. Van Antwerp is up for sale at an astonishingly low sticker price of $10 or less. There’s a catch, of course.
During its June 12 meeting, the Montclair Planning Board approved a subdivision application for 44 Pleasant Avenue. A condition of the Board’s approval requires that the existing dwelling on the property be offered for sale and relocation in an effort to save the historic Dudley Van Antwerp home. The buyer must move the house from its present location to a site within approximately one-quarter mile of its current 44 Pleasant Avenue location.
Below are the building’s purchase requirements, shared today by the township of Montclair:
The premises are purchased “as is,” “where is.” The structure must be removed from its present location at 44 Pleasant Avenue, Montclair, NJ, to a location within approximately ¼ mile. The purchaser shall be required to enter into a contract with seller in which: (a) the purchase price not to exceed $10.00; (b) the purchaser shall perform all necessary remediation before the move and the costs of the move shall be borne by purchaser; (c) the seller will contribute a maximum of $10,000 toward the move cost; (d) all other incidental costs, if any, shall be borne entirely by the purchaser, which; (e) purchaser shall also indemnify seller from any and all liability, including attorneys’ fees and costs; and (f) purchaser shall provide appropriate insurance guarantees.
