New listing on Close Road. In 2007 it sold almost instantly for full price: $5.5 million, twice its assessment. Back then, it was an 1800 cottage (3,100 sq. ft.) with 4+ acres and direct access to Wilshire Pond. The buyer did a ton of work to it but bumped the house out to just 3,500 sq. ft.. She has now put it back on the market at $7.9 million. Can you get that much for 3,500 sq. ft? Maybe, because it’s a great setting. I’m looking forward to seeing it at its broker open house next Tuesday. I’m guessing it will be gorgeous.
