A 111-year-old mansion in New Jersey has been put on the market for a meager $10. What’s more, the owner is even offering the buyer $10,000 to help with the cost of moving. But, as they say, if it seems too good to be true, then it most probably is. In this case, for instance, the generous offer comes with an almighty catch.

The aforementioned house is in the desirable Montclair area of New Jersey. And if the price tag wasn’t enough to entice buyers, surely they’d love its position on a street named Pleasant Avenue? Its very name makes it sound a lovely place to live.

And it was renowned local architect Dudley S. Van Antwerp who constructed  the property in 1906. He set up his own design practice in the early 1900s and was responsible for the architecture of Montclair Wachtung Avenue Congregational Church and the Yacht Club in Bayside, Long Island, among other buildings.
