MERIDEN — A classic Tudor-style mansion on Lambert Avenue known as “The Castle” has sold for $367,000.
Joseph Geremia and Niki Geremia purchased the home late last month. It was built in 1930 by local Russian-born real estate mogul Esidor Derecktor for his daughter.
The 5,466-square-foot mansion at 70 Lambert Ave. is spread over about a half acre and has 5 bedrooms, four bathrooms and two kitchens.
”It just screams wealth and at this price you can look really, really wealthy for not a lot of money,” realtor Marc Seigel previously told the Record-Journal. “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.
