uctionsllc.com.The land which the home resides on was purchased in the summer of 1957 by the family of A.J. Fasolo, an Italian immigrant and general painting contractor in Farmington.According to A.J.’s son, John, when the land was purchased the family wasliving on a busy street and wanted to relocate. They moved in on Dec. 17 1967. It has remained in the same family until it will be offered to the public this Sunday.Chapulis said that he spoke with Joh Fasolo about how his father would come home from work and work to clear the land until he ran out of daylight. They lived on the same street as Alexander Haig, who served in President Ronald Reagan’s cabinet and was the head of NATO.” His son recalled how his family would wave to Mr. Haig while they were driving by in their red Chevy paneled fan and he was out walking with his security guards,” said Chapulis.A.J. Fasolo served as a volunteer firefighter in Farmington from 1961 until his death in 1982.Once the real estate auction is completed, Chapulis will begin auctioning off the contents of the estate at approximately 4 p.m.“The house is mostly untouched,” said Chapulis. “It has wonderful cherry wood bedroom furniture, a pair of twin beds and original children’s toys that were put in the attic many years ago. There are also numerous ladders and painting equipment including an early steeple seat.”Other items in the home include a Roy Rogers and Dale Evans lunchbox from the 1960s, a mounted swordfish, an Italian Piaggio motorcycle and a clock collection.“Among the clocks is a rare, wooden works clock from Farmington with beautiful hand-painted glass and stenciling featuring a sailing ship and a nautical theme. This is a rare piece of Farmington history.
