A nice, but expensive house in Riverside

Seventy-two Summit Road was gutted and renovated in 2009 (or thereabouts) and then added on to and renovated still more by the present owners in 2010. They have it listed at $2.050 and, while I can’t vouch for that price on this particular street, this is a beautiful house and a great example of what a couple with good taste and a good builder can accomplish. I showed it to one couple this morning who are looking more in the $3 million range (tip to new agents – never balk at showing houses well below your clients’ price limit – if you can save them some bucks, they’ll thank you) and their response was that this was exactly the house they wanted but not the land (it’s on about a third of an acre).

So its interior stands up nicely to homes costing a million dollars more. If you are looking in this general price range, I’d recommend it. I haven’t seen every $2 million house in Riverside or Old Greenwich that’s for sale, I don’t think, but I’ve seen most of them, and this one is by far the best. Depending on your tolerance for Summit Road – your call.

    Very pretty home, it seems the current owners barely had time to get comfortable in it though.

    If they are Brits, they probably want to get home before England splits off from Europe. Britain has her Manolo’s dug in pretty tightly at the Euro Summit.

    Three children’s bedrooms sharing one hall bath? Doesn’t sound like a “$3 million interior” to me at all. Are you sure your buyers weren’t just being polite?

    Rail road noise included in price?

    … Or, the interior is equal in quality to a 2 million dollar home/land and your client expects a 1+ million dollar property. That sounds more accurate.

    What do you think will sell this home? What catches your eye on this house vs the other $2 mil homes for sale in Riv/OG? Is there a “killer-app”‘, so to say…fancy kitchen, etc. It seems for every positive, there’s some drawback people can throw out. The “tie-breaker” is usually the price. But, maybe there’s a”killer-app” at work here…what is it?
