Buying this home brings with it a piece of Martha Stewart’s story.
The businesswoman, lifestyle expert, and swimsuit model’s childhood home in Nutley, New Jersey has hit the market for $600,000.
The modest four-bedroom, three-bathroom North Jersey home was where the longtime TV personality lived with her parents and five siblings.
Located at 86 Elm Place, the home screams humble beginnings.
Stewart, 81, spent much of her childhood and teenage years in the home — and it was here that she learned many of the skills, including cooking and housekeeping, that shaped her into the character she eventually became. Today Stewart has a net worth of $400 million.
His house, built in 1930, came on the market on May 5th. It previously sold for $385,000 in 2005 and again for $420,000 in 2011, according to property records.
The colonial-style residence extends over almost 2,000 square meters.
“As you approach the home, you will be struck by its classic, symmetrical facade, with a central door and spaced windows on either side,” the listing reads.
With a total of 10 rooms, the main level has a living room, an adjoining dining room and the open kitchen.
The four bedrooms are upstairs. The house sits on a manicured lawn surrounded by mature fruit trees including peaches, pears and figs.
There is a bonus room on the third floor.
Long before Stewart published her seminal 1982 book, Entertaining, this was the home where she hosted gatherings of high school friends.
Stewart, born Martha Kostyra, moved to 86 Elm from Jersey City in 1944 when she was three years old.

Meanwhile, Stewart has lived in multiple homes throughout her career — from her famous historic farmhouse affectionately named Turkey Hill to her current estate in Bedford, New York. which often happens in her popular Instagram account.
