17 Meadowcroft Lane, a 1929 mid-country mansion with just 3.97 acres of its original land remaining, sold for $8.7 million in 2009, was extensively remodeled and redone and put back up for sale in 2010 at $10.795. Not a buyer in sight, it finally lowered its price to $8.5 million and struck gold in the form of two people who wanted the same thing. It went to contract in April and sold today for $9.391 million. Even at that, the sellers may well have lost a bit of money on this deal, but not much. Gotta love a bidding war.
