26 Stillman Lane gets a deal Today

26 Stillman Lane - List $4.5M

After 231 days on market, this Sherwood Farms Association home has a deal. Built in 2015, the builder bought the lot for under $1.5M in 2009. 6600 SF house with an asking price of $4.5 / $680 per SF No pool (approved site per the listing), no theater and no wine cellar. 

I saw this when it was not complete and the interior looked much like many of the homes that are being built in 2014/2015...Lots of white, darker  hardwood floors, marble counters, back splashes and baths. etc... 

If more than one buyer was in line for a house with blue shutters, they may even get over asking price.
