Life goes on….new listing in backcountry – 9 Bayberry Lane

9 Bayberry Lane was just listed yesterday, and it will be interesting to see what happens to this “estate”. On 8+ acres, and zoned RA4 – who knows? Listed at $5,750,000 an assessed at $3,771,180, the improved land is quite pretty – and historically there are the GRT (Greenwich Riding Trails) that cut through the unimproved areas of the property – so that’s charming – for what it’s worth…

There is no conversation about subdividing per the listing, but who knows whether they could provide access from Cherry Valley? I believe that the opening to the property as it exists is too narrow to provide access for (2) homes.
Will the buildings be razed? Most of them are not worth the amount of space they consume. And the main home is in need of restoration in most areas of the home – like all baths, there are 5 1/2 and 7 bedrooms. There was a new kitchen with butler’s pantry installed in 2007, but overall the house is very typical of the homes that were built in 1935 – the 2nd floor composed of  a long narrow hallway with lots of little rooms with the master also in need  of TLC….
Time will tell – the home next door at 5 Bayberry was completely gutted beautifully renovated in 2002. Year built same – SF and B/B provide pretty good comps, although it sits on 4 acres – It was listed for $5,295,000 and eventually sold after 500+ days for $4,750,000.
We’ll see….
