39 MIDBROOK LANE OG - $2,150,000

Great house, perhaps the nicest on the street - which doesn't always work in the sellers' favor...Sits back, lots of light, drama - not a cookie cutter house...click on the link above to see the entire listing. It began its journey at $3,299,000 and the market denied them until recently. The town has this property valued much closer to this list price. Lots goes on behind the scenes sometimes...the market is the market - it is what it is.

146 HENDRIE AVE - RIVERSIDE -  $3,895,000

This was first introduced to the market in 2014 for $4,595,000 - new or not - Riverside or not - the market denied this price. 6 bedrooms, 6 baths - new construction, everything in the right place - 7600+SF, 4 fireplcaes - It is beautiful...it's a good idea, when selling a house like this in today's market, to feature some artwork, because they all start to look the same, and when I look back at the interior shots, it jogged my memory about which one of the new houses I had seen recently.

22 ARNOLD ST - OLD GREENWICH - $2,095,000

It's cute - off Havemeyer - 3800SF 4 bedrooms, 4 baths Newish construction...I wonder if the buyers also looked at 16 Roosevelt south of the village - may have been a bit out of reach at $2,395,000 - new construction about the same size - 4 bedrooms...

2 Boxwood Lane is Back - You had me at .83 acres in town - why talk about a "new" kitchen?


Sometimes a seller will exaggerate about their property, but it is our job to stick to the facts and do some digging. Everyone makes a mistakes, but if you can't tell the difference between a new kitchen and one that was perhaps remodeled in the 80's - I don't know

"Remarks: A private oasis only a block from town on an over-sized 0.83 acre lot awaits just off Maple Avenue. Very few houses in Greenwich give you this much land, a new kitchen, walking distance to town and privacy."

Back on market with new representation, at $100K less than the last list price - boasting a new kitchen...It is currently listed for $1,695,000. It's on .83 acres in town.

Judge for yourself:

  • Corian Countertops
  • Off White and Blue Tile Floors
  • Fluorescent Ceiling Fixtures
  • White appliances may be newish (I'm sure replaced), but certainly not on the must have lists of the buyers that I am working with
The current owners bought the property in 1987 - so maybe the kitchen was new - in 1987.

IN CONTRACT

10 Will Merry - $4,495,000

Sellers bought this is 2005 for $3,730,000 and did some nice upgrades throughout the years. They tried unsuccessfully to sell it in 2011 for $5,490,000, then again in 2012 and were denied $4,875,000 and again in 2014 where the exuberance of a bettered market gave them the confidence to bring it back at $4,950,000.

If they get anywhere close to asking price, they should be thrilled....

POOL SHOT FROM PREVIOUS LISTING  CLOUDY DAY :-(

OUTDOOR SHOTS SHOULD BE TAKEN ON A SUNNY DAY

I DID LIKE THIS IDEA OF CUTTING INTO A HILL AND MAKING
IT LOOK AS THOUGH IT WAS PLANNED...ILLUSION OF A
SEMI LEVEL YARD - WHICH IS ATTRACTIVE TO YOUNG
FAMILIES...THIS STREET IS 2 ACRE ZONING - SO LOTS OF
SPACE TO KICK THE SOCCER BALL AND RUN AROUND....
DO KIDS STILL DO THAT UNLESS THEY ARE CARTED TO
THEIR GAMES?

VINCENT CAMUTO ESTATE NEW TO MARKET


Vince Camuto, best known for his eponymous brand,  also founded 9 West, owned lots of property in Greenwich...the estate is now selling it all 




The estate for Vincent Camuto is selling all of the Greenwich property, 23 acres total on and slightly off Porchuck Road - or as realtors would advertise, off Round Hill Road. They might also say "close to town" even when you're a stone's throw to the Parkway - clients would argue, so why even go there. One thing is for sure, is that it doesn't take more than 15 minutes to get to town. I know because I live on Porchuck. So my choice of words for location might be, convenient to the Parkway and Westchester airport, and a 10-15 minute drive to town.

The facts - a huge parcel of land is being sold, with a menu of choices for either the whole enchilada or in pieces....

TODAY'S MENU


11 CHATEAU RIDGE - 8.16 ACRES - $2.9M

5.29 ACRES - LOT A - $2.5M

4.49 ACRES - LOT C - $1.1M
10 ACRES -  LOTS B & C - $2.6M

Open House Pick of the Day - 900 Lake Ave

...not a new listing, but after re-visiting, it's unbelievable that it doesn't yet have a deal. This house is so solid - beautifully constructed. The mechanicals and plumbing are amazing...I regret not having taken a photo while I was there...everything is top notch.

The house feels good, warm and inviting - great kitchen and entertaining spaces...and they've done a great job integrating the original house with the additional space...

There is a pool site, albeit not town approved...
