316 Stanwich Road asked $1.699 and went in just a few days. This wouldn’t sell for all of last year but I thought it was the best two-acre lot in
central mid country Greenwich and fruitlessly showed it several times this winter before it was officially relisted. Unfortunately for me, the clients who “got it” couldn’t afford it and those who could afford it didn’t agree with my assessment of its value. Forget the perfectly-livable house on this site, that’s free; the two flat acres alone were worth the asking price.
27 Oakley Lane, off North Street and fronting the reservoir, sold for $6.8 million in 1998, tried for $10.750 back in 2010 and gradually sank back to that 1998 price last year. Today it has a contract. The house is a grand old thing, built in 1930, but I’d guess it’s not worth restoring and will be headed for the dumpster. Great land, though, and five acres of it.
