171 Cognewaugh, an 1800 house on 2+ acres, asking $1.289. I assume this will prove to be a land sale only, which is too bad; Cognewaugh and Cat Rock are just about the last streets in town to still have antique homes, and they’re disappearing at an increasing pace.
11 Meadow Drive, in Cos Cob, asked $744,500 and has gone in 9 days. At this price, in that neighborhood, no surprise.
75 Connecticut Avenue tried without success to get $3.895 back in 2007 and was rented out since. When the owner cut $1.150 million from its price and listed it at $2.699, it sold. Good house, but it overlooks chicken shacks and pig pens on the street behind it.
And good gracious, 2 Carey Road, Riverside, has another buyer. This wreck of a house has a boulder for a yard, no access to the Mianus (no easy access when the cops don’t cut it down, a rope swing allows visiting swimmers to drop in), and just 0.16 of an acre to build on. Notwithstanding those limitations it found a buyer last June, only to have the deal fall through. Now it’s done it again.
