45 Close Road has dropped its price again and is now asking $4.999 million. Lovely land, a nifty renovation but still a small house (plenty of FAR to expand or even build new, if you wish). What caught my eye is that the seller paid $5.5 million for the place in 2007 and must have spent what, a million? renovating. In any event, she priced it at $7.795 in 2010 so presumably the renovations cost less than that. And now, whatever she put into it is yours free, plus $500,000 for your troubles.
I’d love to live here, but the general taste for houses in this price range demands much more space. If you want small and elegant, this could work for you.
