Back from closing on 26 Taconic Road

Sale price, $4.850 million. This is a beautiful Kali-Nagy designed and built Georgian, originally (mis) priced at $7.495 million back in 2007. It kicked around a bit, on and off the market until this spring when the price dropped to $5.450. The yard is somewhat compromised with a pond in a portion of its two acres, but between replacement cost and even comparable sales ($6.5 and up), plus its close-to-town location, my clients and I thought this offered good value.

A shout out to listing agent Dancy Cassell, by the way: she’s a complete professional, always gracious and always a straight shooter, with none of the games some lesser agents engage in. There were a few minor bumps in the road to completion of this sale and Dancy got us past them smoothly. She’s a pleasure to work with.

    Can we assume that your commission goes into your legal defense fund?

    What happened between 2007 and 2014? Rented? Vacant?

    • A bit of both, but after the last lease ended in, I think, December, Mr. Kali-Nagy repainted every scrap of it, moldings, ceilings walls, etc., refinished the floors and basically had it feeling brand new. Our building inspector told us it was a plus being six-years-old because “everything structural that might have gone wrong would have by now”. Regardless of that, it’s a beautiful home,in excellent shape.

        This looks like a fantastic buy. If the dirt is worth the $2 million I think it is, then the buyer got tasteful, top quality construction for under $400 a foot.

        • I agree (of course). The land sold for $2 million in 2006 and there must have been close to $500,000 in site work, from a new septic to recreating the pond, to a new drainage system, etc. Even if you tossed out that site work cost, it comes out as you suggest, and you can’t build at this quality level for that cost.
