Broker Open Houses TOday

I was showing properties in the morning, and couldn’t get out to many of the broker open houses on tour today…

I did manage to see:

30 Oneida Drive – $4,895,000 – A charming and chic 3 bedroom and 2.5 bath carriage house, one would also be able to construct a substantial home on this over sized 1.42 acre lot…throw a stone to town, train, Indian Harbor Yacht Club, Bruce Museum …. but at the moment, it is STILL  a 3 bedroom , 2.5 bath carriage house on the marsh – across the marsh is the view of the new condos, that are selling for $5M+ – which should have been the pitch to re-list…
It has been on the market since 2010 when it was listed with the same agent as the current listing agent, for $6M…it did go to another agent for 2 rounds before landing back again with the first… I ask myself: “How does this happen?”
30 ONEIDA DRIVE – 4,895,000
Then there was 21 Vista Drive – listed currently for $54M – with bragging rights that one former owner the Donald…
21 VISTA DRIVE – GREENWICH – $54,000,000
According to Virtual Globetrotting:
“This is the Greenwich, CT estate of Robert M. Steinberg and his wife Suzanne L Steinberg. Mr. Robert M. Steinberg is a retired executive of the firm Bear Stearns.

This magnificent estate is grandly poised on its own six acre peninsula rimmed by the sparkling waters of Long Island Sound. The home was built in 1939 and had 13,923 square feet, but additions were added on when the home was purchased in 1998 for $15,000,000, which brought the total living space to 25,000 square feet. Additionaly, a seperate lot was added on making the lot size 5.80 acres. The property was taken off the market in 2010 after being listed for sale at a price of $50,000,000. The land is owned by the same owner, but taxed seperately. The main home is currently valued at $12,721,800 and has property taxes of $128,617 a year…..”

Lastly because I was less than impressed with the property or the greeting at the door (is it really necessary to be rude to another agent for no reason? Just wondering) 
A 4800 SF Victorian – lots of wall to wall, hot, spiraling, the floor plan is not relevant – it’s been a rental for the last 15 years… asking price: $5,450,000
