Sale and, finally, an accepted offer on 24 Marks Road

99 Stonehedge, an “as is” listing in King Merritt Acres  sold for full asking price, $875,000, in something like six days.

24 Marks Road

24 Marks Road

And over in Riverside, 773 days after starting out at $3.999 million, 24 Marks Road lowered its price to $3.225 and found a buyer. I’m just speculating, but if this house had started out in the mid threes, I think it would have sold sooner, for more. We’ll never know.

    Marks Road land lot was sold for $1.6mm in ’11. So the builders cashing in:
    Roughly $3mm x 2 – $1.6mm – cost of building two houses. Windfall?

    Dude –
    Here is your opening speech for tonight. Can you wear an ascot, pink shirt and white pants so they take you seriously? And from now on, your name is Biff.

    Dear Ms. BO Chairperson:
    My name is Biff Fountain. I grew up in Greenwich, and lived here my whole life. Except for a brief stop in Maine, to determine if bears really do shit in the woods. My research was inconclusive.

    Anyhows, I love Greenwich. I make my living prostituting it’s dirt to unsuspecting out of Towner’s. And you know what they value most? WELL DO YA PUNK!! THEY VALUE THE SCHOOLS!!

    YES THAT’S RIGHT!! They want their precious little crotch fruit to have access to nearby schools, making friends from their own neighborhoods, who they can play with after school. SO YOUR BUSSING PLAN BITES THE BIG ONE!!

    LOOK AT ME!! I could walk to school, and it wasn’t diverse. Well maybe we had a Wop or a Pollack, but we needed someone to pick on, right? Plus they snuck in from Cos Cob.

    And look how I turned out!! My bipolar and split personality issues have NOTHING to do with my lily assed 100% NON DIVERSE EDUCATION.

    I am SHMART!!
    Now take your plan and shove it where the sun don’t shine.
    Thank you.

    Like it? If you live blog, I will write you some follow-up questions.
    Your Pal,
