It must the season to erase the founding settlers of Riverside, because here’s another property occupied by its original owner since it was built in 1957. 116 Lockwood (corner of Lockwood and Hearthstone) has an accepted offer. Asking price since last August was $1.275 million and I assume it’s selling for somewhere near there. Why a hundred thousand less than the by-now-standard Hearthstone/Bramble/Druid price of $1.4? I’d guess because, despite the listing’s description of this land as “level”, only a Swiss mountaineer could consider it such. Nothing a bulldozer can’t and won’t cure, but there’s work to be done here.
This will make approximately the 12th $3.4 million new house being built in this tiny triangle. Which will run out first, available teardowns or buyers in the $3.4 range? Wait and see.
