Sure beats the long, tedious, drawn out process that more often is the case: between the accepted offer and the final walk through, it could be months. But with these two – short and sweet…

167 ZACCHEUS MEAD LANE LISTING

LIST PRICE 6,495,000

The sellers bought this in 1999 for 6,200,000, and did some pretty specific changes to the property – like a complete Japanese bamboo wing for meditation, yoga and tea… they then tried selling the property with a list price of 10,500,000 in 2016. It finally expired with it’s first agent after 649 days at a price of 7,995,000. Re-introduced at the beginning of the Spring 2018 market, it now has a deal.

25 GROVE LANE LISTING

 4,200,000 LIST

The original house was built in 1982, but it was since “re-built” per the listing description in 2014.

The urban oasis as it’s described, and that’s spot on! Sometimes you can’t always buy a home based on square footage. When space is used properly and efficiently, less can work.

Take this in town beauty – 3 Maher Court. With all levels finished, 3000+ SF, 5 bedrooms and 3/1 baths, this in town beauty has so many useful features, including a well equipped outdoor kitchen, directly through the French doors in the main kitchen.

3 MAHER COURT – GREENWICH – 2,875,000

Impeccably fresh, inside and out, this property should be on your list of homes to see. Spaces are thoughtfully executed, and the proximity to just about anything, is perfect for in town living, with your own piece of paradise just steps from the main house.

309 Round Hill Rd – Greenwich – 1,925,000

I remember, not so long ago, that the average days on market for a contemporary was much longer than traditional homes. Not any more! It needs to be in move in condition, but at least if you get a deal, you can ostensibly flip it for a pretty nice profit.

Take 309 Round Hill Road. After 14 days on market, it has reported “pending status” which is usually indicative of a cash deal. The sellers bought it for 1,375,000.

During it’s “before” state, it was on the market for 471 days, starting at 1,950,000 in March 2016.

4 acres, 4200+ SF, 4 bedrooms, totally renovated/freshened including a refurbished tennis court.

2 LEDGE ROAD OLD GREENWICH CT

Beautiful new construction in Ledge Rd Association…it took a couple of years to get a deal, but when the price is right, buyers will come. Starting in the mid 5’s, it got a deal when the price was reduced to 4,295,000.

94 PECKSLAND RD – GREENWICH

Old dated house, and we will not be shocked when a new house is built here. 5.86 acres on a beautiful street.

43 HIGHVIEW AVE OLD GREENWICH

You want to sell an old house? This is how you do it. Beautiful. Starting 59 days ago at 3,295,000 it was reduced to 3,095,000 and got a deal. And I wouldn’t be shocked if it went slightly over this last list price. It’s a brand new house basically, expanded and improved on an original concept.

29 ALDEN ROAD GREENWICH

Finally! With an extremely long history of days on market, mortgages, liens, re-packaging, agents – at 2,950,000 this property has attracted a buyer. It was purchased in 2003 for 3,150,000. The shell of the house still stands. 3.37 acres in RA1 zoning.

53 SOUND BEACH AVE – OLD GREENWICH

After just 59 days, this little charmer got a deal on an asking price of $1,095,000. The sellers bought it in 2009 for 890,000. Busy through street into Old Greenwich, it will never command strong price, but it’s a convenient roof over one’s head and for many, beats renting.

89 PROSPECT ST – GREENWICH

It only took 8 days before this was reported. List price 985,000. The sellers bought it in 2014  for 829,000 after only 4 days. It’s super cute, and also on a through street going from Hamilton Avenue to Putnam Avenue, but great for commuters.

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.

15 N CROSSWAY – OLD GREENWICH – 43 DAYS ON MARKET – LIST 6,995,000

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.
