11 Will Merry Lane, already reported as having an accepted offer, has moved to “executed contract”, meaning all contingencies – financing, inspection, etc. have been met, so barring an earthquake or Sandy’s return, a closing is pretty-much assured. Last asking price was $2.5 million and this will presumably sell for less than that. 545 days ago the owners asked $3.650, so that didn’t work out so well.
Good land, comprised of two level acres with a pool and tennis court. There’s significant impact from the Merritt Parkway in its backyard and the house itself, while seemingly well built, could easily swallow a half million in renovations, from a new kitchen to a complete rearrangement of the master bedroom area upstairs. All that said, if this sells for, say, the high 1’s or low 2’s, someone could be all in for a decent price, and that highway noise might be more easily ignored.
