So we were bit by Spring fever and curiosity to see a luxury community in North Stamford, Windemere on the Lake. So, my husband and I ventured out to look at what we thought were several Open Houses in a planned luxury community in North Stamford, CT, piqued by photos and descriptions that looked amazing – beautiful lush greenery, a lake, property surrounded by a wildlife preserve of 74 acres, using green technology. a clubhouse, pool and tennis court, services with interiors using Wolf and Sub Zero, Christopher Peacock cabinetry, Marvin windows – you get the picture.

There were 3 that were advertised as “Open House 1 – 4pm” :

When we arrrived, there were in fact 3 of a total of 24 planned homes on the sub-divided property, however, only one had an open door – one available for immediate purchase – one real Open House. When we asked about the other 2 advertised Open House homes, the realtor attending the Open House, informed us that they were not yet built, but the homes that had been photographed, located to the left and right of the one that we were standing in were “occupied” and recently sold for $2.4 and $2 within 34 days or so. Nice.

We felt duped – and this did not instill confidence or an appreciation for having duplicate looking homes in this price range in North Stamford, within such close proximity (given the fact the land surrounding each home is approximately a third of an acre).

So where are the other 60+ acres – over yonder!
