Really just one that caught my eye, 8 Watchtower Lane, Havemeyer, $1.729 million, which is a very good price in this market (tip of the hat to Shore & Country, who priced it). The listing shows it as built in 1953 but it was totally redone – I’d be surprised if there’s anything original except the foundation – in 2010, and it’s in excellent condition, with a huge new kitchen and all the rooms modern tastes demand. Plus, it has a walk-up, usable attic, which in these days of FAR restrictions, is a fast-disappearing amenity.
Watchtower itself is one of my favorite streets because you can see Long Island Sound stretching out in the distance and the sense of space that lends to crowded suburbia is really a great feature. Nice neighbors, too.
If this were 2010, say, I might think $1.529 would be closer to the right price, but houses in this fine condition, in Old Greenwich, are scarce, and I expect this will sell quickly, at very close to this price. Nice home.
Note: the pictures of this house don’t do it justice – definitely should be seen in person. The internet is essential to real estate searches these days, but not sufficient in some cases, and this is one of those cases.
