Real estate lite

Not a lot reported today, but here it is:

 

36 Griffith Rd

36 Griffith Rd

36 Griffith Road, NoPo Riverside, is under contract, asking price $1.079.

434 Riversville Road

434 Riversville Road

434 Riversville Road has cut its price to $2.490 million. Owners paid $2.525 for it in 2005, so the market for contemporaries in western Greenwich seems not to have improved. Nice yard.

 

 

9 Game Cock

9 Game Cock

9 Game Cock Road, 0.27 acre of Byram waterfront, has sold for $1.175 million. It last sold, with a house on it, for $935,000 in 2001. These owners razed the existing structure and designed and, more importantly got approved, a new house. Somehow, this road’s name always seemed a bit boastful to me, but for a BSD from Wall Street, maybe that’s an attraction.

 

30 Stag

30 Stag

30 Stag Lane, 4 acres on the north side of the Merritt, with house, sold for $1.4 million, a year after starting off at $1.695.

21 Oakwood

21 Oakwood

And 21 Oakwood Lane sold for $3.750 million. Oakwood’s a popular street, with reason: decent sized lots and close to town.

405 Old Long Ridge RoadOver in Stamford, 405 Old Long Ridge Road is to be sold at auction June 21st by the foreclosing creditor. The (former) owner paid $1.125 million for this beautiful old farm house on 3.8 acres back some years ago,but it’s not worth that now, apparently. Auction notes says to bring a certified check for $76,500, which is either 10% of the debt or the appraised value. Either way, I might start bidding at $450,000 and see what bargain you might get. The new owner is “Retained Realty” which must be the disposal branch of the original lender, so the money’s already been written off.

    Believe it or not, 405 was the former residence of June Havoc, little sister of Gypsy Rose Lee.

    Havemeyer Park: ??? This def. is a neighborhood worth commenting on…seems as though it’s going thru it’s awkward adolescent phase….prices all over the map, interesting to see where the dust settles.
    62 Halsey sold for $760k odd, on the market for $1.3m….looks avg. at best from street…but pics posted look amazing. Then you have a similar type home ..smaller lot, with not much renovation (same road) 26 Halsey Dr $869k..then one sitting on the market a long time 5 Macarthur Dr @ 1.15m, 9 Lejeune Court $1.195m…and 37 Macarthur Dr @ 1.495m…..very interesting to say the least…..great schools, low taxes, family oriented neighbor hood…FYI i’m from NY looking to move to CT, for better quality of life and lower taxes!

    • I’ve had a lot to say about Havemeyer and what’s happening there these past few years, and so have readers. Use the search feature for “Havemeyer” and I think you’ll find them. In any event, yes – the neighborhood’s being transformed.

    Biggest downside to Havemeyer is it’s relative proximity to some pretty crusty Stamford hoods. Otherwise, very nice.
