  1. I am not sure from your photo caption if this house ducked from going into the dumpster or if the house is doing a new dance in the dumpster, the dumpster duck….anyway, is there anyway of finding out how many demo permits were pulled in Greenwich in 2012? Seems you’ve posted alot of stories about houses so doomed. Is the permit fee based on the square footage being demolished?

    PS: Walt is off his game today. Usually he reminds you that you’ve forgotten Elvis Presley’s birthday – he’d be 78 today. Elvis, not Walt, but if Peeps were still around, I believe she’d call Walt her hunka hunka burning love!

    Wow, that seems cheap, especially for 3 acres. That would evel sell for more in westchester. That might be a decent building lot at that price, looking at comps in the area. Did 15 Vineyard lane really sell for 2.3 in 2011, which is what Zillow says.

    Extremely challenging to build…house sits right up against a stream. Existing house is a dumpster duck….out of date, wood rot, etc. Majority of land is up hill behind house ….need a bridge and a lot of blasting to do much.

    Surprised it went for as much as it did…maybe the neighbor bought it to build up his cul de sac buffer!

    I don’t think it’s possible to build here. I think you are stuck with the current dump.

    15 Vineyard was a divorce, so the reported value is only half. Still a good buy.

    That sounds more reasonable for 15 Vineyard.
