306 Round Hill Road, $1.825 million, on a 2011 price of $2.999. I’m baffled by this sale. It’s an 1804 home with much of the original building still intact but its surrounding land was sold off long ago and the Merritt Parkway built next to it. I love truly old houses, and Pal Nancy and I even restored an 1835 farmhouse in Maine when we were young and stupid, with plenty of time and no children on our hands. But I wouldn’t put that same labor into a house on just 2 acres that was buried under the noise of a highway.
Someone else is of a different opinion, obviously.
Lower in the food chain, 71 Riverside Lane, NoPo, sold for $600,000 “as is”. Figure land value plus, maybe, $50,000 for the house itself.
