MERIDEN — A classic Tudor-style mansion on Lambert Avenue offers a slice of history and luxury and is on the market for $387,000.
Known as “The Castle,” 70 Lambert Ave. was built in 1930 by local Russian-born real estate mogul Esidor Derecktor for his daughter. The 5,466-square-foot mansion is spread over about a half acre and has 5 bedrooms, four bathrooms and two kitchens.
In June, the home was on the market for $450,000, but has since been reduced.
”It just screams wealth and at this price you can look really, really wealthy for not a lot of money,” said realtor Marc Seigel. “It’s an inexpensive way to look like a multimillionaire.”
The exterior features intricate brickwork, pitched roofs and leaded windows while the remodeled interior retains the home’s historic qualities with exposed beams and domed ceilings. The kitchen is updated with modern appliances and granite countertops.
The home is in the city's inner tax district. It was assessed by the city at $289,590 and had a tax bill of $12,180 this year.
