Sixty-five Hunting Ridge, asking $10.750 million, has been withdrawn from the market. I’m guessing that like many homeowners, they don’t want their Christmas disturbed, but at this price range, how many buyers could they expect? Of course, it’s always possible that they’ve pulled it to regroup and reconsider their pricing strategy.
This looks like a fantastic house: 11,000 sq. ft., some of that surely buried, six acres, pool, tennis court and the works, but 2011 may not be the right time to break the price record on Hunting Ridge. Two very similar houses, built more recently than this one (2003-2005 vs. 1997) sold for $6.650 (’04) and $9 million (’06) but that was then, this is now. In fact, I doubt the $9 million house at 111 Hunting Ridge would fetch that sum today. So $10.750 may be exceeding the owner’s grasp, but what’s a heaven for, and all that?
