When this property, priced at $5.2 million went to contract in November, I reported the rumor that the owners had accepted an offer in the low 3s. That seemed low for 6.6 acres and a renovated 1745 farmhouse, even if it did overlook the Round Hill general Store. But its selling price was reported today as $3.4 million, proving again, as I suggested in the original post, that in this town, rumors about real estate are often more accurate than any other kind (well, the Noel/Alzheimer’s rumor seems pretty solid, but forget about that). 62% of the original asking price is arresting; for those taking notes, you may want to know that the sellers paid $2.6 for this place in 1999 and put in a substantial amount of money into renovations. Oh – and the original price back in 1998? $3.5 million. My my.
