FALL RIVER, Mass. — The mansion where Lizzie Borden lived out her days after she was acquitted of the ax murders of her father and stepmother is on the market.

The Victorian on French Street in the city's north end is described in the real estate listing as an "art piece that has been painstakingly restored to its original grandeur, with no detail overlooked."

The current owner purchased the house in 2014 with the intent to turn it into a bed and breakfast.

Kristee Bates has renovated the eight-bedroom home and is asking for $849,900.

The 4,000 square foot home has 6 fireplaces, 8 bedrooms, and 3 and a half baths.

The listing information notes the home is "offered for sale fully furnished and has a variance to operate as a bed and breakfast. It has been a private residence since it’s restoration, unseen by the public."

Lizzie Borden lived at Maplecroft from 1894 until her death in 1927.

The house is not the same one where Andrew and Abby Borden were killed in August 1892.

That home on 2nd Street in Fall River is operated as a bed and breakfast and museum.
