Greenwich Time “reports” on real estate news

This home at 12 Baldwin Farms South sold for $5.1 million last week, making it the top sale in town.

“This home at 12 Baldwin Farms South sold for $5.1 million last week, making it the top sale in town.”

12 Baldwin Farms South sells for $5.1 million, “97% of its final asking price”. 

FWIW provided a more objective view – or at least, a view not calculated to be inoffensive to major real estate advertisers, back on November 6, when it was first reported under contract. In addition to describing the house more accurately that GT does*, we gave the original starting price: $12.495, rather than use the “final”. It’s more fun that way, and more informative.

 

*Sample: There wasn’t much to like about this house – certainly not at $12.5 or even $7.5 million, from its entrance via a stone causeway over the swamp that comprises its front yard, to the skimpy patch of yard in the rear (ignore the trick photography, it’s a handkerchief-sized back lawn), to the weird, sort-of-French-manor, formal  exterior, to the informal country kitchen look inside. I suspect a committee of architects deigned this place, with interference “input” from the developer. Whoever was responsible for the final result, they doomed it from ever achieving anything more than a fire-sale price.

    The Greenwich Time is so irrelevent that your posts about it’s inaccuracies don’t even rate comment by your readers.
