I’m not even going to pretend I know what this means

286 Round Hill Road (ML # 73905) came on today for $5.375, described as a 1900 house with nothing done to it since then to merit mention, and three acres of land that are “perfect for the chic nature lover”. Do they mean there’s a coop on the grounds? That one does her gardening in black? Is this code for the sophisticated set so that bums like me are left put of the fun? Who the hell knows. Assessed value is $2.940, if you’re wondering.

  1. No upgrades since it was built in 1900? If it were in Cos Cob, nobody would notice the lack of electrical service.

    In Cos Cob it would have burned from the curse.

    No – Just the (nutty) theory that there are an inordinate number of fires in Cos Cob – the Indian massacre and all of that. Sorry for the poor attempt at humor – no electricity, oil lanterns – at the expense of the Cos Cobbers!

    What’s the deal with the side by side identical driveways (bing maps), have they sold every speck of land that used to belong with this house?

    For 3.5+ac the house is, in my opinion only, unfortunately sited. They appear to have one tennis court and three pools that “should” be in the yard but belong to neighboring homes. Then there’s the tiny house with the identical driveway mimicking every twist and turn from RHR but separated by a fence, how many times and ways has this lot been subdivided?
