Three so far today, all under $1,00,000 and one, Boyd Lane (off Riverside Lane, of whiffleball fame) asked just $575,000 and presumably got less than that. The highest priced one, in Cos Cob, had marked its price down to $925 before it found a buyer, and was originally priced at $1.265 in February, 2008 – that proved to be optimistic.

    Offhand I can’t of the Cos Cob house you are referring too. Can you give me a hint?

      Sure, Cos Cob – I wasn’t being coy, I just couldn’t remember the street. It’s 30 Robertson, which is probably why I couldn’t remember it – I don’t know it. Anyway, it’s off River Road. Looks like a nice house.

    Oh, you should know Robertson..its in the vicinity of FF’s homestead. It is the street that runs parallel to Mead between Rte 1 and River Road.

      Yes, Frank has been insisting that his neighborhood is part of Greenwich, and I didn’t belive him. But if you say so …

    I was at the OG parade yesterday…you know what I saw, a parade that would have been much shorter without all the content good old Cos Cob provided.

    On an unrelated subject, when are you going to come over and help me site my above ground pool?

      Oh heck, just stick it next to the snowplow and behind the rototiller and you should be okay. And thanks to Frank’s sensitivty, it’s the only structure you don’t need P&Z approval for!

    30 Robinson was last assessed at $605K on 2008. Been trying to use that as one barometer for selling prices these days…if that home was accessed properly.

    By the plow? That means I have to ebay my ’72 pop-up camper or park it street side. I’ll go street side for now.

    I’ll have to do a drive by on 30 Robinson to see if its much of a barometer for CC. You know, we’re pretty much bullet proof in 06807…just look at Dandy drive.
