2 Wyngate Rd

2 Wyngate Rd

21 Wyngate Road, asking $1.695 million, reports a contract, price unspecified. Started off 587 days ago at $1.995 million. Almost 2 acres, it’s a nice piece of property, convenient to town, with a perfectly acceptable house on it though, as I opined to the late owner some years ago, I thought the value was in the land itself. That late owner (or to be accurate, the spouse of the owner), was the great ocean sailor Huey Long (not that Huey Long), the owner of a series of boats, all named Ondine, with which he won every major ocean race at least once. Colorful guy.

10 Deep Gorge Road, asking $2.695, down from its 2013 price of $3.195, also has a contract. Beautiful home, but the western side of town is a tough sell.

    does anyone even live at 10 deep gorge?

    they are either the neatest most anal retentive people in town, or nobody’s been in that house since 1982.

    21 Wyngate seems to be severely restricted by wetlands, to the point where I don’t know if a new build is even possible. I guess the price reflects this.

      It’s fine if you keep to the existing footprint; which implies that an end user bought it, since trying to build a large house on spec there is impossible.

      The fuzzy mold on the ceiling in the living room deterred me; even if you stripped it to the (2×4) studs you could still very well have issues down the road.

    By your parenthetical thought, it’s the spouse who is the ocean sailor.

    I don’t mind the western side of town at all (love Riversville), but it all depends on how you get there. If the most convenient route is up King Street, it’s a no.

    Glenville Road is a nice drive up to the western side.
