The open house tour today yielded two nice surprises.
The original parts of this house go back to 1758 and I love it. Wide floorboards, quirky rooms, four acres nice pool. A little noisy due to Round Hill Road, but whatcha gonna do? I’d buy it in a heartbeat but I. alas, am not the market – in fact, the more I like a house, the longer it seems to stay on the market. But if you like old houses (and this one has been renovated over the years, have no fear), you should see this one. $4.1 million asking.
This house on Lauder (off Zaccheus Mead) is just as nice in its own way. I don’t want to insult the owner, but its decorating reflects the year it was built: 1991, and I think you’d want to redo it. But it’s dropped from $6.650 to $5.975, close to its assessment of $5.647, so you can afford to redecorate it. Besides, who doesn’t want to do that with any house? Good location, nice street, and a great looking house. I liked it.
