A bid of $1,029,500 has been received for the Lake District Victorian within which the mummified corpse of the homeowner was found among the items hoarded by her surviving adult daughter. And the final sale price could go higher.
As the mother’s death was never reported, the sale will require court confirmation. And while the $1,029,500 bid for the house has tentatively been accepted, interested parties will have an opportunity to bid higher at the probate hearing for the estate, the date for which has yet to be scheduled.
As a plugged-in reader first reported and provided a peek inside when the property hit the market listed for $928,000: “the front half of the property is in great shape with plenty of potential (two beautiful original fire places, lincrusta in the hallway, original trim, etc),” but the back half is another story.
