Honest to God - This is a Real Listing!

....and so it goes...

"House Sold "As Is" condition. Subject to Probate Court approval. Information is taken from town records and Fieldcard. Agent has not been in the house. Oil tank & laundry location unknown. Buyer will need to do their due diligence prior to purchasing. Agent makes no representations to house, land, or septic. There are no sewers on the street. Please note that GPS does not direct you to the house. Peepers Hollow is a private street off Riversville. Agent researching private road cost."

Starting at $1.5M in December, my first thought was this agent had no idea what they were doing...It's in 4 acre zoning and only .15 acres....the agent is not member of the Greenwich MLS. It is now priced at $750K.

 
THE LISTING CLAIMS TO HAVE A GARAGE

THERE ARE SOME NICE PROPERTIES ON THE STREET - BUT .15 ACRES IN 4 ACRE ZONING DOESN'T CREATE MUCH OPPORTUNITY


YIKES! BIKES!

PRIDE OF OWNERSHIP - OR VERY BAD RENTERS?

11 Club Road - Riverside - SOLD - $6,025,000 and other activity....


11 CLUB ROAD - CHARMING, RENOVATED VICTORIAN
The seller bought it from ABN Amro in 1992 for $1.2M - he's happy... One might say, well, it's been totally renovated (probably more than once). 6000+ SF, 6 bedrooms, 5+ baths- everything done floor to ceiling...very sweet...

IN CONTRACT

2 ONEIDA DRIVE E - LIST: $5,295,000
I love these condos - they're beautiful - and location is fantastic - on Steamboat Avenue. This one is 6600+ SF, 4 en-suite bedrooms, marble baths, luxurious appointments and elevators...

Sold Properties Yesterday



15 Lexintgton Ave - Closed $3,092,250 - Asked $4,150,000 in '14
Not a fan on contrived turrets, silos or lighthouses - but what do I know?...they're everywhere in 2000+ construction...and they seem to sell eventually

128 Porchuck Rd - $4,200,000 - Sellers bought it for $5.2 in '03
This doesn't bode well for 69 Porchuck - similar house that
was trying to get $6m+ 


458 Stanwich Rd - $1,875,000
Asking $2,450,000 in 2013 - it is a great house - realtor owned with a restored barn. I love the house, and would have thought that it would sell for at lest $2M.

314 N Maple Ave - $1,455,000
Normally this location would have fetched a lot more, but the sewer line that is shared by 4 properties has to be replaced. I am sure that this carved into the final price - the original price was $1,850,000. Built in 1925, never renovated, 3300SF, no air conditioning... not for the weak of heart, but needing to be close to schools and town.

6 Huckleberry - Sold $1,825,000
Originally asking $2,150,000, I found it interesting that the listing talks about the former owner who was a "key member of the Garden Club" - not sure of the relevance to the property...fair price on a nice lane...

Sales - All Shapes and Sizes - BIDDING WAR!


12 Roosevelt Ave
12 Roosevelt Ave - Old Greenwich - $2,295,000 - This was sold with an existing home and plans for the home above...like the street overall, but there is a large very modern box style home right in the back yard view - and these yards are very small....
41 Baldwin Farms S
41 Baldwin Farms South - French - 2 acre zoning - nice flow to the house as it connects with the back pool area - but in obvious need of renovations - unless you can't live without dated wallpaper
51 Lockwood Ave OG - 4 bedrooms/3 baths - 2201 SF - .28 acres
51 Lockwood Ave - Old Greenwich - Bidding War - not surprising since there is such little inventory $1.3 - $1.6 - -started at $1,395,000 and went for $1.501,000 - 14 days on market - pricing it low for centrally located properties, when there is little competition obviously worked for the seller in this case.
184 Hycliff Road
15 Hycliff Road - $2,162,500 on an asking price of $2,395,000 - 184 days on market - contemporaries don't move quickly in Greenwich. The sellers bought it in 2012 for $1.7M, and considering that when then did, it was $1M less than the asking price and had been sitting on market for over 700 days...Overpricing is the kiss of death
184 Stanwich Road
184 Stanwich Road - $2,800,000 on an original asking price of $3,225,000 - Solidly built in 1934 - just over 3800 SF - 6 bedrooms - 4++ baths - 1.8 acres in midcountry Greenwich - nice house and property...
