2 New but Been There Done Those Listings


I pray for selfish reasons that both of these properties find love this time around...99 Porchuck is an eyesore that we've had to endure for years

99 PORCHUCK RD - $1,849,000
4 acres in 4 acre zoning...some wet, hilly and wooded - but contiguous to Audubon...anecdotally was used as a parking lot in 2003-04 for the Audubon Deer Hunt...

It was purchased by the present owner in 2002 for $1m (perhaps under duress since it was marketed in 1999 as being under renovation for $1.7M) The current owner then tried to sell it for $3.6 during the height of the market in 2005...ironically close to the price that 18 Porchuck Rd just fetched....a mansion on 8 acres...

18 PORCHUCK RD - SOLD LAST WEEK FOR $3,650,000

 
18 PORCHUCK RD

 Then there's 26 Bedford Rd - again
26 BEDFORD RD - $1,950,000
Realtor owned, and still over priced - it's a 3 bedroom/2 bath house on 3 acres in not exactly the most sought after location. We may be back to '06 prices in Riverside - Bedford Rd - not so much.

Ex Olympian is Arrested Stalking a Deer through a Lexus Parking Lot


Since everyone is out of town this weekend, with the exception of a few of us...not much to report. So for entertainment value...

First and foremost - out of season hunting can be done on private property, with owner permission - but not in a commercial parking lot!

He got such a bad shot that the deer had to be euthanized!  So he wasn't a competitor in the biathalon - thankfully for his prides sake-  stick to what you know!

WALSH LANE ACTIVITY - New and Pending



21 WALSH LANE - $4,495,000
THE LONG AND WINDING ROAD
On and off with the same realtor for a very long time, it is finally with another today. Timing had lots to do with the history, and the first realtor was very successful with leases that carried the property to this point. It's back with a slightly higher asking price than when it was last on the market in 2012 - so we'll see...

48 WALSH LANE - LIST $5,990,000
Sellers bought this 6300+SF 5 bedroom house for $4M in 2008. Nothing exceptional, built in 2009. It's a bit cookie cutter, in my opinion.

New Listing - 16 Mackenzie Glen - $1,795,000




CUTE UPDATED COLONIAL
Just over an acre in RA1, this cute 2800+ sf home has been updated, and should find love quickly. The sellers bought it for $1.7 4 years ago, so it's priced well. The photography for this listing made it to the Wall of Shame...


PHOTO WALL OF SHAME!

OUT OF FOCUS AND CROOKED - NICE KITCHEN - SHAME!
CLUTTER AND USED/NOT MATCHING TOWELS - SHAME!

Not only did the photographer/most likely realtor not take the time to remove the clutter from the counter (we don't need to see what brand of toothpaste they're using) but she's in the mirror to the right of the window.
