Next door to “Maplecroft” this house was once owned by Lizzie Borden. This Victorian is and always has been a three family home but was once known as the James Davenport House and was built in 1879 by the ninth mayor of Fall River.
Painted last summer with lovely new landscaping and planters added – among other improvements – it was listed for $315,000 last August but sold just before Christmas last year for $282,000.

I wrote about this last October but had wrong information. Michael Brimbau, the owner since 1992 (and author of The Girl With The Pansy Pin) moved out to work on the charming fixer-upper he purchased on Charlotte White Road in Westport. Stefani Koorey remained until it was sold.
One of those very old homes built with one bathroom on first floor but second bedroom on the second floor. Improvements have been made.
Mr. Brimbau has also written a clever comedy By the Naked Pear Tree: The Trial of Lizzie Borden, actually a play in which two of the scenes had been performed at the Somerset Library by the Pleasure of Poetry Club .
And yes, that’s Stefani Koorey in the front. The one with the moustache. Judging by the photos on the link above, looks like this group had a lot of fun. By the way, I highly recommend Mr. Brimbau’s book. It is quite funny and very well written.
