For more than $400,000 less than it's worth.

The home has been Pegged as an English country estate...


Sitting on over 5 acres of land.

It was built in 1928 but has since been renovated, and it's not too shabby.

And now, after 5 years of trying to sell, O' Donnell is finally moving forward with her house...

But it's not what you would expect.

O' Donnell's home is to be demolished...

And turned into affordable housing.

As per The Post, the home is expected to be demolished and turned into a series of affordable housing units per a landmark public court settlement with Fair Share Housing Center.

A plan that has left some residents unhappy.

The NYP reports that according to a source who lives nearby, the borough had plans to comply with the affordable housing requirements in Saddle River which means sites should be 100% affordable.

But, in this case, local developers Saddle River Investors intervened.

The settlement between the borough of Saddle River and the Fair Share Housing Center of NJ will see O'Donnell's home converted into 60 units.

In which, 20% will be affordable housing.

The source explained to the NYP that of the 60 units, "only eight are set for low and moderate income and the developer will stick the eight units in the back corner of the property instead of integrating, so everyone will know these are the homes saved for the poor."

O'Donnell reportedly sold the property at a $1 million loss for $5.3 million on March 17.
