There were just too many on the tour today to get to, but here were some I thought notable.
24 Daffodil Lane, Cos Cob (off Mimosa), $2.450 million. An exterior that is not often seen in this neighborhood, but once inside, this offers a lot of very usable space, in great condition, for not a whole lot of money. It’s on two acres, mostly woods, with a pool. It failed to sell in 2011-2012 when it was priced at $2.6, but the market’s gone up since then, and this one’s price has come down. All in all, for this price range, very attractive.
112 Old Stone Bridge, at $1.525 offers some decent possibilities. I think it needs a total gut job and perhaps a wall or two moved around but there’s good space here, and the price reflects the work that needs to be done. Decent yard off to the side.
I did get to see 74 N. Old Stone Bridge Road, mentioned here earlier today as a new listing, and its pictures are not deceptive: it’s a nice house. It is, as I suspected, perched on a cliff, but there’s lots of deck space and inside is airy. I like it as an adult house, you may find it entirely suitable for a family with kids. Very much worth checking out.
Star of the day was 23 Hendrie Extension, off Edgewater, asking $9.250 million. Very modern inside, clean and spare. I liked it. Listing agent Shelly Tretter says it stayed dry in Sandy, but I’d imagine that was a relatively close call. But hey, you want to live on the water, you take your chances. To me, the benefits far outweigh the disadvantages, but that’s a personal choice. If you have $9 million to spend on a house, I’m guessing you can afford to take a hit. Your call.
