The SOLD sign went up on the lawn of this 1911 Wayne home within days of its RE/MAX listing. The sale of the formerly named Howerton Hill is still pending, so we don’t know the final numbers, but given all the amenities — hardwood floors, fireplaces, updated kitchen, large brick patio, partially finished basement and new split-rail fencing around the property — it’s no surprise it was snapped up. It also has another standout feature: a new three-car garage that’s been converted into a “man town” with a movie screen and projector, recalling one of the home’s former owners, “Big Screen” Harry Fried, founder of the Anthony Wayne Cinema movie theater.
