Four of them.

171 Cognewaugh

171 Cognewaugh

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

11 Meadow Drive

11 Meadow Drive, in Cos Cob, asked $744,500 and has gone in 9 days. At this price, in that neighborhood, no surprise.

75 Ct. Avenue

75 Ct. Avenue

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.

2 Carey Road

2 Carey Road

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.

    Suggestion: drive down Cat Rock or Cognewaugh in a typical SUV (Cat Rock in particular, since it narrows down to 1 lane in a couple of places). Then you’ll know why there are still “antique houses” that haven’t gone yet.

    Growing up in town, I had a good friend who lived midway down Cognewaugh. I was not allowed to have playdates with her in the winter months, that is how bad that road is.

    But other towns have good roads and still have antique homes. Don’t get the correlation, and don’t understand why Greenwich is so devoid of these charming homes???

    Connecticut Avenue house has a weird master bedroom too..a weird loft.
