Same Old Same Old - 137 Old Mill Road - Same Tired Decor - Same Old Price

The listing claims:

"SUPERBLY RESTORED CLASSIC GEORGIAN DECORATED BY NOTED DESIGNER HOWARD SLATKIN WITH WONDERFUL ADDITIONS IN CHARACTER BY FAMED ENGLISH ARCHITECT CHRISTOPHER SMALLWOOD - 2 STORY LIBRARY WING (ONE IS OCTAGONAL)IN A MANNER OF DALYESFORD AND GARDEN ROOM AFTER OSTERLY HOUSE, TWO OF THE MOST FAMOUS 18TH CENTURY ENGLISH HOMES DESIGNED BY ROBERT ADAM. GRAND SCALE, HIGH CEILINGS, SUPERB DETAILING - LIVING ROOM WITH EXQUISITE PANELING, MEMORABLE DINING ROOM, GREAT COUNTRY KITCHEN/FAMILY ROOM PLUS UPSTAIRS FAMILY ROOM. TWO BEDROOM GUEST HOUSE WITH LIVING ROOM, WET BAR AND BATHROOM. CHARMING POOL HOUSE."

Who Cares? That the famed English architect seems to have forgotten a dormer? That it WAS decorated in 1986 - is any of it still relevant? Throwing names around that today's buyer doesn't know or care about is most likely going to fall on deaf ears.

There is no year built on the listing and no square footage, but it is on the market for nearly twice as much as the town appraisal amount of $6,736,600

...and counting

YOU'VE GOT TO SEE FIRST HAND HWAT I'M TALKING ABOUT:

And I found a little bit about the seller, who co-incidentally is now living in the former Gimble's building that was converted to condos a while back. This is also where I rented an apartment for year before decided to buy down the street.

I do not foresee the same scenario for her country home.

Greed resonates here - not feigned nostalgia.
