A foreclosed house in Yonkers will be auctioned for as little as $60,000 along with four other properties on Thursday.

The one-family home at 7 Moquette Row is a two-story building on a historic street of small row houses built for families who worked in the former carpet mills on Nepperhan Avenue. The opening bid for the house is $60,000 and the auction starts at 11:15 a.m. in the lobby of the Westchester County Courthouse, 111 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in White Plains.

Built in 1893, the three-bedroom house is fire damaged and city tax records show that the house’s tentative full-market value for 2016 is $133,300. A spraypainted sign on the 960-square-foot home’s front door states that the house burned on May 14, 2010.

Court records show that in 2014 Yonkers foreclosed on the property, which was formerly owned by Frank Battaglia of 75 Alpha St., Tuckahoe.

At 10:30 a.m. there is an auction for a 0.05-acre vacant lot at 179 Ashburton Ave. The starting bid is $100,000 and city records show that its tentative 2016 full-market value is $73,000.

At 10:45 a.m. a building at 181 Ashburton Ave., adjacent to the vacant lot at 179 Ashburton Ave., will be auctioned with a starting bid of $150,000. The tentative 2016 full-market value is $363,3000 and in 2014 Yonkers foreclosed on the property, formerly owned by Cherilyn Mejias.

The three-story building built in 1903 has retail on the ground floor and apartments above.

At 11 a.m. a commercial property at 350 Ashburton Ave. will be auctioned with a starting bid of $125,000. The 0.07-acre lot is listed in city tax records as having a tentative full-market 2016 value of $56,700.

The city foreclosed on the property in 2014 and it was formerly owned by Ascott Real Estate in Hobe Sound, Florida.

At 11:30 a.m. there is an auction for 213 Lake Ave., a dilapidated corner industrial building near Nepperhan Avenue. The starting bid for the property is $209,500 and city tax records show that its tentative 2016 full-market value is $550,000.

The building has a gross floor area of 2,996 square feet and it was formerly used for retail. City records show that it was also owned by Frank Battaglia.
