With apologies to visiting readers, this blog is usually at least partially devoted to Greenwich real estate and while trashing local wannabe journalists is fun, I have a living to make. In fact, I owe an apology to the regular readers, most of whom probably don’t give a rat’s ass about gun rights and the Second Amendment.
So here’s some real estate news. Those of you from out of town might find it amusing to see how little you get for how much in this town.
Three sales reported yesterday, 51 Old Stone Bridge, $1.325 million, 2 Parsonage Rd, $3.450 and 23 Pond Place, Cos Cob, $770,000.
Old Stone Bridge was rented out for most of this past year so if it was purchased by the renters and that rent was credited against its sales price, the $1.325 figure shouldn’t cause other Old Stone property owners undue alarm. If not, you’re all in trouble up there.
2 Parsonage selling for $3.450 sounds about right, even though its owners must have been disappointed. They paid $3,684,375 million for this in 2008 and, I’m told, poured several hundred thousand more into improvements (though it was a new house – go figure). Noisy corner lot on two busy streets.
23 Pond Place asked $899,999, got $770,000 when the owners got real.
