37 Meadow Wood Drive, Belle Haven, asking $5.490, reduced from its year-ago price of $6.650 million. Interesting history on this property – it sold “direct” for $5.950 million in 2002, which proved a boon for the seller, because when those buyers exposed it to the real market in 2004 they had to price it at $5.3 million and finally sold it for just $4. We don’t know yet what it’s selling for this time, but it will probably be for more than that 2004 price, because the owners appear to have sunk a lot of money into it. That doesn’t always mean anything, of course, but ….
This is to my mind a pretty typical Belle Haven house, decorated in that Greenwich Awful look and enveloped by the noise of the Thruway to drown out the unpleasant whining of petulant, spoiled grandchildren. That’s a popular combination on the peninsula, though I don’t know why.
