The Froh Heim Mansion takes its name from the German words for "happy home"and whoever wins the home's auction on September 26 might be very happy indeed. The home in Far Hills, New Jersey is on 11 acres and was originally built for a mining industrialist by venerable New York City architects Peabody, Wilson and Brown. The Mediterranean style home has 16 rooms with seven bedrooms. It was built on a grand scale, a 47-foot banquet dining room includes a limestone fireplace and four crystal chandeliers. The home has been updated with modern features including central air conditioning. The grounds include a pool, wine cellar, barn and two caretaker apartments. The auction is being held with no minimum reserve bid but this home was previously offered for sale for $8.9 million.
