You may recall this house from a few months back: A beautiful abode. With a stalker..
The Westfield New Jersey house made some news.
Now it’s back in headlines again because it’s for sale, back on the market (the market did not accept it before) ..
Here is the catch: Someone is watching.
A Westfield, New Jersey, home supposedly afflicted with a “watcher” who sends menacing notes is back on the market — this time at a reduced price.
The homeowners, Derek and Maria Broaddus, say the “watcher” sent his first note to them and their three kids just three days after they closed on the $1.35 million home in 2014.
The Broadduses tried unsuccessfully to sell the home last year after they claim they received a disturbing letter that read in part: “My grandfather watched the house in the 1920s and my father watched in the 1960s. It is now my time.”
The listing says the house, located about 25 miles from New York City, is a “stately colonial designed with all the character and charm of the early 1900’s.”
The Broaddus family never moved into the home due to the letters and have sued the previous owners, claiming they knew but didn’t disclose that someone had a “mentally disturbed fixation” on the house.
It’s a buyer’s market.
Or stalker’s market, perhaps?
