This is a gorgeous old (1930?) house with spectacular views from its 23 acres on the highest point in Greenwich but I was taken aback at its list price of $38 million in 2008 because the place was pretty much a wreck,and how much is a view worth? Especially when the entire Hirshhorn sculpture collection had been removed to its new gallery in D.C.
But as usual, I was wrong, and someone paid $30 million for the place 0n an assessed value of $8 million. They’ve done some renovations and have relisted it for $33 million. Will lightning strike again? Stay tuned. Assessment today is $9 million.
