537 North Street has reemerged after serving as a rental for the past few years. Asking $7.350 million now, down from its builder’s 2006 price of $9.995 and down just about a $million from its last, 2009 price of $8.250. I found it a very odd house, but perhaps its new price will make it more appealing. Never seen a toilet perched two feet away from the head of a bathtub, just as a for instance. But whatever.
And here’s a curious one, 1 Deer Lane is offered for sale for $4.385 million, 1 1/2 acres in the R-1 zone. The builder/developer who now owns it bought it just last week from the guy they sold their new construction at 69 Rockwood Lane to for a reported $6.050. So what’s the deal? Land swap? Discount? Arms length transaction? I report, you decide (a reader tipped me off to this odd transaction earlier this week but I held off writing about it until today, when One Deer surfaced).
