Even when a historic home was priced for less than the cost of one month’s Netflix subscription, it couldn’t find a buyer.

Of course, the true cost of the Montclair, NJ home would have been much higher than its $10 list price, because a buyer would have had to pay to move the mansion off its 2.7-acre site.

Known as the “Aubrey Lewis House,” the mansion was built in 1906 and belonged to an esteemed citizen of Montclair for which the home was named, along with his wife Ann. Aubrey Lewis died in 2001 and his wife subsequently took control of decisions regarding the mansion.

If you want to get in on this deal, we have some bad news: given that no one wanted to buy the super cheap home, it has been demolished.

A group of developers operating as Boddie-Noell Enterprises Inc. oversaw a proposed a subdivision of the site of the mansion to build eight houses there. [NJ.com] — Mike Seemuth
