36 Perkins Road – Greenwich CT – $4,825,000

I showed this a couple of times to end users, which is what the seller was obviously trying to attract.  Today’s buyer is spoiled and picky, and this was not going to fly the way that it was presented. Buyers thought that it was too much work, and the way the home is presently sited, sits too close to the road.  The rear yard is beautiful.

Unfortunately, after nearly a year on market, it either sold to an end user for a great price, or to a builder. It’s a beautiful lot on the corner of Lake and Simmons.


The sellers bought it in 2009 for 6.5M so they must be thrilled with a quick cash deal. Smart on their part to provide an elevation certificate. One less thing to have to guess about or deal with.

207 Byram Shore Road reports “pending” status today, however, it’s reported for the agent who had the listing prior to the current listing agent…

The property is owned by Robert Weinstein, brother to the disgraced Harvey.

A mystery!

14 Druid Lane – Riverside CT – Closed 2,367,500

With only 11 homes on the market in Riverside, priced between 2.1 and 2.4, it’s no wonder that this got a bid within 41 days – list 2,195,000…but 172,500 over list!



I wonder how many “not you’s” are out there?

Greenwich certainly has it’s share of beautiful properties, but this one knocks it out of the park! I said so when it was listed at a much higher price – in 2016. It began it’s pricing at 22M in 2016. Today’s price: 14,900,000.

Built in 1930, this property delights in every way – understated elegance is captured in every space. Quality, taste, function. 13 acres, 12K SF, 7 bedrooms, 9/2 baths, a carriage house – just amazing.

There is absolutely nothing was spared in creating and renovating this home.

If this is within your budget – my advice: Just Do It!


This has been on for a while, and there were a couple of pushbacks when I showed it…so its doubtful that it will close at full asking price. It’s obvious that the additions look like just that – they kept adding & connecting to the right. It is a bit in no man’s land so location may not work for some.

 19 SUBURBAN AVE – COS COB – 1,575,000 LIST

This started at 1,749,000 in February and finally someone has hit the bid at this price. It wouldn’t surprise me if it closes just lightly higher.

This was a long road for 44 Close Road. Originally designed and built for Tommy Hilfiger, with an aesthetic of the Ralph Lauren Madison Ave store, but never did he move in. Rather the buyer ended up over his skis, owning this along with another property on Lake Ave, with mortgages that far outweighed the value of these properties.

The buyer bought this in 2005 for 9.5M. No . w bank owned and with a price tag that seems to have met the market, it reports a deal

21 Cove Road Old Greenwich – 2,595,000

Fresh and clean with a beach theme, this home was a delight to tour. It’s better in person that what the photos represent, since part of the experience is how fresh this home feels and smells. It has great 50’s bones, and the baths are beautiful. The kitchen is well equipped, and the space is accessible to the rear terrance. Transitional in style, it is timeless, which appeals to a broader audience.

21 Cove Road is appropriately positioned in the OG market for similarly sized homes, but 19 Grimes may see the love first. It does have more of a view, with similar flood exposure, albeit the finishes are not quite as elevated as 21 Cove.

(to 3000SF) 21 Cove and 19 Grimes have the same FEMA AE High 13 feet & 12 E Point has some areas that are VE high to 15 feet. Shore Road is mixed with some of the property being X and AE to 12 feet. None of the three above have elevation certificates that are available on line, and none of them speak to how much additional flood insurance costs. They’re unknowns that have to be answered anyway, so I say, open the kimono now for full disclosure. In this price range, it may still be a concern.
