14 Cove Ridge Lane, a tear-down directly across from the Fountain hovels on Ole’s Creek, sold for $2.787,500, bless its heart.
And 137-133 Doubling Road, three building lots, is marked down today to $9.250 million, a substantial discount from when it first appeared on the scene in Juy, 2011, asking $15.5 million. This was the site of the old Bolling estate, “Greyledge”, which these sells purchased for $7.6 million in 2000. They tried unloading it in 2004 for $8.2 and when they couldn’t, they purchased an additional bit of land, tore down Greyledge and have subsequently kept the police blotter (well, the ex-wife has) busy with their light-hearted frolics. In fairness to the couple, who were called historical vandals and worse for knocking the pile of stones down, it was truly one ugly house, and won’t be missed – not by me, anyway.
