The Future of 4008 Rose Hill, the Avondale Mansion of the late Eveleyn Baskin, may be decided today as the Sherriffs sale where it will be auctioned off.
The property valued at 210,000.00 will have an opening bid of 140,000.00. The property was ordered sold as a result of USBANK taking the estate to court over unpaid mortgage debts. The property was brought to the attention of local Preservationists when Waverly Auctions announced a tag sale in which the "alleged owner" who claimed to be doing some "planned updating' intended to sell off valuable one of a kind fixtures.
After it was found out that the property was embroiled in legal disputes Waverly Auctions dropped out of the sale but at the last Minute another auction house conducted the tag sale although it appears at this point the architectural items were not sold, though some have reported that some light fixtures were gone. The legality of this tag sale is in question.
Several people have expressed interest in the grand Mansion built in 1906. The house will need some restoration but is offered at well below market value in a very stable neighborhood.
