From Classic to Contemporary - Choices are Good!

Image
NO CONTRACTS YESTERDAY- ONLY ONE SO FAR TODAY There were a small handful of truly new inventory yesterday, and a few others that we will have to look at again for another season....we'll start with the new: 102 North Street - $4,600,000 This is my husband's boyhood home - a classic CT home.  The sellers restored it, maintained it's footprint, flooring and millwork. They added a garage that is architecturally in-keeping with the home itself. It's on nearly an acre relatively close to town, and beautifully sited to capture great light and a warm feeling throughout the home. TO SEE THE FULL LISTING CLICK HERE 150 Clapboard Ridge Rd - $5,495,000 Sellers just bought this in 2014 for $4,063,000 and renovated it. TO SEE THE FULL LISTING CLICK HERE 51 Connecticut Ave - #3,895,000 Beautiful new construction in central Greenwich - priced nicely to  compete with other in town properties.

Is Banksville the new Old Greenwich?

Image
Out of Town Home Buyers Beware ....and thankfully we have Google Maps There isn't a choice on the CMLS for Banksville, but a closer interpretation for this would be to list it as N/A.

Fast and Furious - Contracts to Report

Image
12 Sidney Lanier - List $1,995,000 I guess someone needed a building lot close to town - 1 photo, with elaborate description of the interior (maybe this is the new method) and 14 days  on market - seemingly an easy breezy deal.  TO SEE THE FULL LISTING CLICK HERE ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~   25 Halsey Drive - List $1,295,000 This property had had a deal in February that obviously fell through for whatever reason, and it came back on the market this time for $1,285,000 and got another deal pretty quickly. Adorable renovated and it even has a little pool in the back...The sellers bought this in 1999 for $395,000, and of course they've done a ton to improve it. But it still shows the appreciation on this side of thePost Rd in Old Greenwich over the last several years...

Lots of Greenwich Activity $1.8 - $2.2 Range Yesterday

7 Shady Lane - $1,895,000 - 8 Days on Market Sellers bought this new in 1998 for $425,000. All the way on the west side of town - it beats Westchester taxes. TO SEE THE FULL LISTING CLICK HERE ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~   10 Mackenzie Glen - Pending Status - Years on Market $2,295,000 This property has been on the market since 2015 when it was first listed for $2,795,000.  List too high and it takes a toll... It expired at the current list price at the end of 2016.  The sellers bought it in 2002 for $1.9M, and most likely will have to process this as the cost of living over the last 15 years. Looks like they did some renovations on 2004. By the timeline from when this property changed from contingent to pending status it appears that the buyers offered a clean offer . My guess for where it will close? $2M ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~      25 Jeffrey Rd - $1,895,000 - 88 Days on Market Sellers bought this in 2002

Open House Pick of the Day - 938 Lake Ave

Image
938 Lake Ave - $2,495,000 In addition to the very sweet main house, there is a garage / garage apartment, and the other garage could definitely translate into a beautiful pool house - if one so would choose. The house itself is a classic New England homestead - not many remain with so much original charm.  TO SEE THE FULL LISTING CLICK HERE
