There are some moderately priced (for Greenwich) houses on today that I want to review for clients but not a heck of lot else. One of interest is 140 Indian Head, a beautiful home built by Doran Sabag in 2008. Asking $14 million, which, beautiful house or not, strikes me as more of a “make me move” figure than a realistic number but I could be wrong – it’s pretty spectacular and has a great yard, albeit with a long path easement to Cos Cob Harbor rather than actual waterfront. Zillow thinks it’s worth $8 million, and somewhere between those two numbers I suppose, a deal will be struck.
UPDATE: 140 Indian is as great as I’d heard. Pretty much a perfect house in layout, yard and location and of course it was built by Doran Sabag to his usual exceptional standards. But will it get its price? The only one who can answer that are the potential buyers in this price range. I’ve noticed, and commented here before, that while the $5-$9 millin market is pretty much dead the super high end continues to see sales to people who know what they want. When they see it, if they see it, they seem to have no difficulty paying for it.
So we’ll see – Anyone who drives down Indian Head must surely notice and admire this house, so perhaps one of those passersby will dig into his pocket. Nice house.
