Visiting John and family, back, probably, Thursday. I’ll be blogging, but it will be limited (especially during the 5-hour trip up there and back – where’s my chauffeur?)
Greenwich gets 1¢ from the state for every tax dollar we send up to Hartford. Other towns do better, naturally.
Reached for comment, Francis Fudrucker, Chief Apparatchik for the Greenwich Democratic Party, was unapologetic: “Welcome to the People’s State of Connecticut, chump – from each according to our ability to squeeze, to each according to who our friends are. Love it or leave it, eh?”
43 Bramble Lane, Riverside, new construction, $4.1 million. It’s not worth the trouble to chase down sold listings and pictures of sold houses anymore because of the Greenwich Board of Realtors’ efforts to hide them, but it’s your basic new home, basic insane price.
314 N. Maple Avenue, started at $1.850, last ask, $1.695 million. A complete re-do, but great location. My own clients were tempted, but the roller coaster floors and tilted lolly columns in the basement made them fear for the home’s structural integrity. Apparently, an engineer’s report reassured these buyers on that question.
