Or, more prosaically, between the Nathaniel Witherell Home and Putnam Cemetary, This new listing at 44 Parsonage Road is of note primarily because, at $2.795 million, it’s asking a wee bit less than its 2003 sales price of $2.873. I won’t have a chance to refresh my memory of the place until its open house two weeks from now but judging from its pictures it doesn’t seem to have changed much, not withstanding the listing’s claim of a 2010 “renovation”. And while it may just be an oversight on the part of the listing broker, I’m always cautious when there is no picture of a home’s kitchen.
Still, it’s on 1.5 acres in the 1 acre zone and even with some wetlands, there should certainly be room to expand from the current 3,800 square feet.
Speaking of land values, four acres at 156 Taconic has a contract. Last ask was $1.9 million, down quite a bit from its 2009 ask of $3.2. Assessment is $1.328, which seems closer to what a building lot is worth up here than that first price.
