Of course, you still have to buy the land but hey, this is Greenwich, after all. In any event, 59 Club Road was pulled from the market a month or two ago and is back today, now listed as land as well as residential, and at a new price of $3.295, down from $3.895. The place sold for $3.150 in 2005, overnight, so demand has obviously changed.
I like this house, inside, but its layout reflects the predilection of its previous owners to stretch it out by adding additions. That, and its placement on the very edge of its rear boundary – probably the result of a lot split sometime between 1924, when this house was built, and the present – yield a strong argument for razing it and starting anew.
But it’s a very large parcel on a great street, so the land alone is probably worth what they’re asking. And it does come with a perfectly nice house.
