Best-selling novelist Elizabeth Gilbert is selling her “beautiful perfect house.”
The Italianate Victorian mini-estate is about to go on the market for $999,000, in Frenchtown, N.J. (just over an hour from NYC).
“Because I’m a restless person and I need to move all the time. It’s time to move, then! Otherwise, there is no sane reason to sell this exquisite and lovingly renovated ‘four-over-four’ Italianate Victorian house that was built in 1869 by the great-grandson of John Reading (the first governor of New Jersey and a hero of the Revolutionary War.)”
It’s no surprise that the most magical space in the writer’s home is the library. Called the “Skybrary”, it’s a magnificent 1400sq library in the attic (with a romantic cupola and 360 degree views), which was handcrafted for her over three years by a master woodworker.
