Fate

Burned down, possibly due to arson

The Baudelaire Mansion was the original home of the Baudelaire family, but was burned to the ground at the onset of The Bad Beginning. Count Olaf, the main antagonist in Lemony Snicket's novels, was believed to be the arsonist that burnt down the Baudelaire Mansion although he will not admit to it as quoted in The End.

Description

The Baudelaire home was an expansive property most noted for its large private library that held "books on every subject". As mentioned in The Grim Grotto, in the library, there was once a group of books that Mr. and Mrs. Baudelaire kept on the top shelf that included an atlas, romance books, and war books. When Klaus, at a young age, managed to get the atlas from the top, but was ruined when he and Violet left the window opened and rain came in. Their mother said the atlas was "irreplaceable."

The property contained a secret passageway leading to the penthouse apartment of Jerome and Esmé Squalor667 Dark Avenue. The purpose of this passageway was to direct members of V.F.D. to a safe place before the schism. This passage is the reason why Jacques Snicket had urged Jerome Squalor to buy the penthouse at 667 Dark Avenue. The special "emerald lumber" used to build the mansion was supplied by the Lucky Smells Lumbermill.[1]
