Creek front sale reported

7 Ole's Creek

7 Ole’s Creek

7 Hendrie Drive, Ole’s Creek, $2.2 million. This was a nifty piece of property: 0.8 acres in the R-12 zone, high above any possible FEMA flood zone revision – not even a polar bear could climb this high – and of course, an incomparable view of Chateau de La Fontaine across the way. I’m surprised it didn’t sell for a premium.

    Was this property where the boatyard used to be?

    • No, that’s for sale, and probably will be for a looong time – between DEP restrictions preventing a profitable boat yard to be run there, zoning restorations on any other kind of commercial use, and a challenging site for a residence, I’m not sure what will happen to it.
      This house is up two more bends in the creek (heading south, towards the Sound).

    Nice to see a house built in 1958 being sold by original owner; don’t see that too often these days………..

      Doing the numbers, if purchased at 25, now 55 years later, owner is at least 80…and I wonder if the grandkids mow the lawn?

        Back in the day a 25 year old could afford to live in Greenwich…..

          In the summer of 1972, when I was age 26, I bought my first house…a nice little Cape on Field Road in Riverside.The individual who bought it in 1977 still lives there!

    This would have been better shared under your Taranto / Spinal Tap blog entry as it is unrelated to RE. I meant to post this the other day.
