It is over 9000SF of solid construction – it has a bit of a past, but that was then and this is now. I say so what who cares – where else are you going to find a 9000+SF home, with a putting green, theater, wine cellar, 2.39 acres, dock, infinity pool for this new asking price ?

Listing reads English Manor, which lately has been enjoying more love than Tudors, and since this property is both, they ran with the odds of getting a better price. But for $11M, I would want the same exterior finish on the facade as well as the rest of the house. Is that a turret over the front door? I may have to see this for myself today…maybe I am missing something…

Described as a “compound” 11 Flagler Drive is a 5100SF property on 2 acres – a compound – not so much. The owners bought it in 2000 for $6,800,000. What they’ve done to update the property is fabulous, but to warrant $5.6M+ more than they paid 14 years ago, appears that they would like to capture every bucket of paint, all repairs and the rent that they otherwise would have had to pay to live this lifestyle. Get real.

On a beautiful street that rubs elbows with Conyers Farm – 89 Lower Cross Land Listing – is reduced once again….for a crazy low price of $899K for 4 acres. Obviously the bank is saying that they want it off their books….their loss – your gain. This property in 2007 was marketed by the builder for 7700SF 6 bedroom home for $6,700,000 – just to add a little perspective.

It’s a great value in Cos Cob condo living, but it surely isn’t getting any love form this marketing…
