Couldn’t make it (stuck on I-95) to 10 Spring House Road, the house I mentioned earlier that has seen its price drop from$8.9 million to $3.895. It still strikes me as a good house and while even $3.895 hasn’t moved it – it’s been so priced since July – it’s got to be getting close to being a deal. $3.5, anyone?
25 Copper Beech, asking $2.695 million, has a contingent contract. Nice house, decent yard, good street and convenient location but when clients and I looked at it this summer we felt there were other houses offering better value at this price. Either that price dropped or more likely, the inventory has been worked through and this is the last house, or the best house, still standing.
There’s been another price cut for 6 Stanwich Lane and it’s now looking for $1.895, somewhat less than the $2.495 it first asked. It sold for $1.4 million in 2000 so somewhere between there and here ought to be the right price, I’d guess. Somewhere.
And new to the market, again, is 51 N. Stanwich Road, quite a bit removed from Stanwich Lane, asking $1.625 million. A tiny antique stone cottage on an acre (the listing says the zoning is “R-1″ which surprised me, being so far north, but perhaps it’s part of the new Stanwich Historical Overlay zone and has different zoning?) and would make a great weekend house, if it had a pool. There is no pool, however, and no mention of there being a place for one – I’d ask.
This last sold just two years ago for $1.367 million and sold before that in 2004 for $1.5. I’m not sure where the current price came from – I’d thought we were drifting down from 2004 prices and even 2010′s, but maybe I’m wrong.
