“This is an exceptional opportunity for people to bid on items they need and can use right away,” said Tim Chapulis of Tim’s, Inc. Auctions. “It’s a blend of old and new but just about everything was purchased recently and incorporated into a truly beautiful home. This auction is only taking place because the home’s owner has accepted a position overseas and she can’t take it with her.”
The homeowner – Maria DelRoser Calvoverges – does research work into cancers of the blood, such as leukemia. Her new position will be in Spain, where she has roots. Ms. Calvoverges has a keen eye for fashion and décor, and the items being sold reflect her good taste. All five bedrooms and the other rooms in the house are marvelously appointed, in styles that are popular right now.
