That was quick!

Not really to be built but it's a pretty drawing, isn't it?

No sooner do we write about over priced land listings than 38 Khakum Wood drops its price from what the seller paid for it in 2005, $4.8 million, to $4.250. We get results!

Actually no, this new price has been a long time coming. After buying the place the would-be builder stuck a foundation in the ground and in 2007 offered the foundation and plans to build the palace depicted above for the preposterous price of $8.5 million. That didn’t include the 17,500 monstrosity itself, mind you, just the plans for desecration of Khakum Wood.

No one was interested so the price has been steadily whacked, a million at a time, until it finally hit the purchase price. Now we’re below ground zero and still digging. Where will we stop?

UPDATE: check out the solar panel on the right side of the roof in the rendering. It’s Green! Build a half-acre house, heat a few pints of water from the sun and that blasted tree-hugger GA daughter of yours will be proud to bring her friends home! Such a deal. And your hybrid Explorer will easily fit in the 8-bay garage.

    You need to do another in-depth post on the stretch of North Street from Dingletown up to the Merritt. I drove by yesterday and couldn’t believe the idiocy going on up there. Who builds a European palace on the off-ramp to a highway? There are so many big, flashy, empty spec homes — who is behind the madness?

      It’s going to be a blood bath, Stan. Already, builders with multiple projects are saying (some are saying) “just bring me an offer – any offer”. Their banks will be even more flexible.

    Loch Lane, across from that turreted monstrosity which I’ve railed against for months now, has THREE going up, and there’s maybe 7 houses total on the street.
