Of the two silly ones, which aren’t even worth giving their addresses, one cut from $3 million to $2.895 and the other from $4.990 to $4.849. I’m familiar with both properties and believe me, any potential buyers for them have already discounted them far more than this. Waste of time.
The significant price cut, in my opinion, is 10 Hurlingham Drive, up in Conyers Farm, which yesterday asked $5.995 and today wants just $5.250 million. Original price earlier this year was $6.495 so these sellers are whacking pretty large chunks from their price, so far without success.
I think there’s some value here, especially considering that almost everything else in Conyers starts around $10 million. Built in 1990, it’s still in good shape but could definitely use some major updating. The master bedroom’s on the first floor, which isn’t popular, but there’s an easy fix for that upstairs and the original lower one would make an incredible guest suite, if one were wanted, or turned to some other use.
The land, listed as 13-acres plus, is kind of sketchy – most of the yard is in front and to the side while the back yard sports a nice pool before dropping off the cliff this was built on and disappearing into a forest of swamp and trees. But there are stone walls in those woods, so there were meadows there once (farmers didn’t build stone walls in woods) and if Conyers Farms’ governing board will let you, you could greatly expand your open space.
But jeeze, 9,000 sq.ft (above ground – the basement is minimal) in Conyers Farms for, probably, under $5 million? That strikes me as an attractive deal, for someone.
