The nearly 4,000-square-foot home that once belonged to Grandma Mary Duggar has been listed for sale.
The house is, of course, the location that the Duggar Family matriarch died tragically in June, after reportedly slipping into her pool and drowning. Grandma Mary was found by her daughter Deanna (who is the sister of Jim Bob Duggar), and a 911 call made from the residence on that day indicated that Mary was unconscious when she was found.
The new trailer for the upcoming season of Counting On revealed that Grandma Mary’s death and funeral will be covered for the show. Now, it seems the family is trying to unload the house where the tragedy occurred. (The Duggar Family: Life is Not All Pickles and Hairspray Facebook page was the first to reveal that the house was listed for sale earlier this month.)
The house, located in Springdale, Arkansas, boasts four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.
“Rare find for the price,” the real estate website description reads. “Lifestyle quality home on 1.51 acre country lot with pool and shop/office building! Soaring ceilings, heavy crown molding, heavy plantation shudders, double stair case, granite countertops and many craftsman features. Large Master Suite, bonus room, office/study. New roof, new 18 Seer air-conditioning; new heavy attic insulation.”
The real estate website’s description even gave a nod to the very Duggar-esque possibilities the house offers, including an area to homeschool your youngins!
“1600 sq.ft. metal shop building has 972 sq. ft shop with 628 sq. ft. of a.c./heat in office/homeschool area with half bath. Plenty of room for family and friend entertainment and the many projects you have in mind!”
While the website description does not go into great detail about the pool, there are several photos of the area where Grandma Duggar had her accident. Of course, it is not mentioned on the real estate website.
Also not mentioned is the fact that the house is literally one minute away from the Duggar Compound, where Jim Bob, Michelle and their assorted unmarried offspring reside.
It is not known why the Duggars are trying to sell the home, rather than move someone in the family into it. (Certainly poor Joy would probably love to soak her hooves in that bathtub, considering she and her family are currently living in an RV!)
Grandma Mary’s home can be yours for the low price of $489,000.
