This Merritt Parkway house dropped to $7.950 million from $8.950. That’s a big cut, but the Merritt Parkway entrance ins still to the left, the Parkway itself is right behind it and North Street traffic still whizzes past the front door. There are buyers out there who don’t mind that kind of activity, surely, or half the big houses on North Street would never sell (come to think of it, half the spec houses on North Street haven’t sold – hmmm) but I’m pretty sure most buyers will prefer to spend $8 million on a quieter location. So either the builder of this one better hope that odd-ball buyer shows up soon or he’ll want to lower his price to attract someone willing to put up with noise in exchange for a real bargain. It’s solely my opinion, of course, but I don’t see this as bargain priced right now.
