Elizabeth Gilbert, author of the wildly successful book Eat, Pray, Love that was made into a movie starring Julia Roberts is now selling her Frenchtown, N.J. home.
And she has written a lush description of the 4-bedroom home on the market nearly $1 million, according to Curbed.com.
And the website’s listing is quite fun to read:
“She shows off her writing chops by crafting no-holds-barred broker babble that dovetails seamlessly with her literary style and personal brand. Some choice cuts include her endorsement of the home’s “Skybrary” (“This enchanting, unique creative space is too magical to be described, and must be seen to be believed.”), her take on what the house needs (“This handsome nine-room, four bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom house has everything, and needs NOTHING.”).”
Listing agent Better Homes NJ VRI Realtors says the home built in 1896 has many modern updates such as a chef’s kitchen, wine cellar, huge closets and hardwood floors. There is a wrap-around porch and the home is in Frenchtown’s historic district.
Here are some photos.
