Built in 1885 – this old lady has undergone lots of restoration – but some things about Victorians never change – the floor plans are passe for many – who prefer open floor plans….For the nostalgic few, you’ve got to embrace the upkeep…
Luckily, for the next owner(s) of 78 Mayo – they will have inherited the “love” from it’s current owners who have given new life to the HVAC, the structure itself, new plumbing, new kitchen – during the course of 18 years – from 1992 – 2010…

Beautiful Georgian Stone Facade
I toured this home this week, and hopefully will find someone who appreciates a great location, superb quality and has vision beyond “today’s trends”. Unfortunately many home buyers don’t have a  sense of preservation and go straight ahead for total renovation. What that often yields, is settling for cookie cutter features with no imagination. 
This home is not for the Brady Bunch crowd that has to have the family room directly adjacent to the kitchen…although if Mr and Mrs Brady could possibly overtake the formal dining room and open the kitchen. Changing paint themes, some light fixtures, a few flooring choices and furnishings would give this home immediate freshness…
The upper level, which has remained as “servants quarters”  – not very pretty, With a little love, it would be a great place for the kids to call their own…

What an interesting renovation – this home as a great place to weekend or to raise a family. There are only a handful of homes in this price range that are South of the Village…so it’s an amazing value. It had been a tired, boring place for so long…but with it’s new facelift – all this home now needs is a forward thinking, value driven  buyer who understands that Old Greenwich lifestyle and experience that is so special.

From Barn to Bath

These warm wood tiles have so much character – Priced from $10-$24 per sq. ft., they  are

 made from lumber reclaimed from abandoned Colorado barns. 

Each tile is fully sealed with a clear, low-VOC coating. Because

 wood tile installations don’t use grout, care should be taken in areas where there’s water – 

so the use of waterproof drywall is recommended.





List Price $1,695,000 – Close Price $1,797,000
