Not much in completed transactions reported today but quite a few new listings (including retreads) are up.
One MacArthur Drive is new proposed construction in Havemeyer, asking $1.5 million, which sounds as though it should be in the ballpark. Readers may remember this as the former 46 Havemeyer Lane, where a disturbed son set fire to the house, with his mother inside, then shot himself. The address change makes sense, as does razing the existing structure and building anew.
20 Heronvue, west side off Cliffdale, is back, at $3.5 million. This was a failed spec project originally priced at $5.4 million in 2008 and then either lost to foreclosure or reclaimed, I forget which. It’s seen periods of rental occupancies and vacancies since. Last time I viewed it with a potential buyer it was in awful shape and showed the effects of long periods of neglect. It was rented after that and perhaps repairs were made. Could be a very nice, if a bit odd, house, but a thorough building inspection is advised.
14 Hawkwood Lane, off North Street, sold in 2011 for $5.695 million and, “renovated” (a flexible term, in real estate) is back on at $6.295. Open house is tomorrow, so we agents can see what those renovations entailed.
12 Ricky Beth Lane, Hillcrest Park, asks $2.193 (?) . The house failed to sell when it was asking $2.350 million in 2012 and, thanks to the Greenwich Association of Realtors new policy of erasing property histories I can’t easily took up whether the foreclosure pending at that time was completed and these are new owners, or whether the original owners held on. Irrelevant, really, to its present value, and we’ll know more about that after viewing it at tomorrow’s open house.
