9 Tomney Road (off lower Stanwich) has returned to the market after expiring unsold last fall at $2.750 million. The owners paid $2.795 for it in 2006 and, perhaps inspired by the recent contract on 42 Bote Road, just around the corner, which was asking $3.3 million, they’ve essentially left last year’s unsuccessful price unchanged, dropping it a wee bit to $2.699.
This was an impressive house six years ago – good quality finishes and a convenient location, even if the back yard was skimpy. I’ll be curious to see whether Bote’s success has pushed this one’s value back up to 2006’s level or if Bote was just a one-off. Stay tuned.
