What Do You Expect for Homes Priced at $10 and Over?

The Greenwich Time today has a real estate article featuring 65 Clapboard Ridge Rd which came to market this week. I toured it during the broker tour on Tuesday and it is beautiful. I was somewhat surprised that it didn't have a finished lower level with the requisite wine cellar, theater and gym...but hey, what do you want for $12,495,000M? Shame that the article didn't help with the real estate world in getting close to asking price for this beautiful location in mid country Greenwich, by saying that there was a glut of inventory. Don't they get it? We don't need to wait for an answer...

What surprises me when I see properties over $10M is the expectation that it will have everything...some do, but most don't - read on ad compare...

8 Bedrooms, 9+ baths, 5 acres - inconsistent with a luxury listing, is
the small oval pool and a shallow theater that requires the viewers to
look up at the screen - strange for a $15M price tag. To see the full listing:

6 bedrooms, 6+ baths, 3.85 acres...This doesn't have a finished lower level - so no theater, wine cellar or gym. It has a better kitchen than the one above... see the full listing below

This is my favorite, which I have written about before...the owners took everything
into consideration with a top to bottom renovation - gorgeous beams, floors, and
architectural details - the grounds are magnificent with its own stocked pond!

This gets my Vote!
