46 Vineyard Lane, reported as under contract just a few days ago closed yesterday at $6.5 million. That’s down considerably from its original asking price 984 days ago of $9.950 but it’s not chump change either. The market for the 1920s mansions of the then-newly-rich is still breathing, apparently. Making your statement of having arrived via a century-old house has fallen out of favor over the past decade but it seems there are still people who want the “brown furniture look”, as one reader has described it.
Or else someone just wanted to grab the 6+ acres of this listing and build on two or three lots. In the two-acre zone in this location, even $3 million per lot might be reasonable and at three lots, the place is a veritable bargain.
