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.
The art of the deal transcends all businesses, and more so in real estate than in many other professions. For the client, it's often an emotional purchase or sale, rather than a simple commodity or luxury item. I make it my mission to have each side come to terms with a transaction that works for everyone. It's not always easy, but good things in life usually take effort - something from which I've never shied.
Licensed since 2009 as a real estate sales agent in CT & NY, I often work with clients on the border of both areas.
With sales and distribution experience for luxury designer products, and watching/reacting to the markets, my acumen for sales was established. Achieving success and contributing to the growth of many global apparel designer brands, such as Giorgio Armani and Paul Smith for over 20 years, it was time for a change. I wanted to explore another passion that would keep me in one location rather than traveling the globe.
Now I have the best of both worlds, a successful business as a fulfilling personal life. My husband and I have lived in back country Greenwich since 2003, where we enjoy easy access to great biking, hiking and golf. We love to ski and that's usually where our travel takes us.
Life is good in Greenwich!
