41 Meadowbank Road in Old Greenwich is up for sale, asking $10 million plus. It last sold, via bidding war, in 2006, when it was listed at $6.9 million and sold, just 16 days later, for $7.0125. Since then, the listing claims, it has undergone extensive renovations.
Pay no attention to the picture, taken from the old listing because a new one hasn’t been posted yet. Ignoring the 1955 facade, the house in 2006 was beautiful, and the water views fantastic. Deep water dock, swimming, all that.

UPDATE: Not only did this guy not change the exterior, turns out that, having knowingly moved right next door to Rocky Point swim club, he proceeded to make a complete asshole of himself upon moving in, complaining about noise, parking, height of the pool, etc, etc. Like those idiots who move under the flight path of an airport and then complain about the jets over head. What pestilent behavior.
