20 Winthrop Drive, building lot, sold in a bidding war for $1.560 million on a $1.450 ask. Couple of points: this same house sold to an end user in 2002 for $1.525 million in 2002; this time, it sat unwanted from October to March, when the bidding war broke out. I’d attribute that to the explosion of sales on Hearthstone around that time. But if you care to track when the Riverside market roared back to life, this was it.
44 Dandy Drive, one acre in Cos Cob and also a building lot (of one so-so acre), has an accepted offer after 7 days. Asked $799,000.
8 Roosevelt Avenue, Old Greenwich asked $1.295 million, went in 8 day. Roosevelt Avenue! This used to be the neighborhood for Electrolux assembly line workers.
