Dumpster Duck234 Riverside Avenue
234 Riverside Avenue, 0.68 acre, 9,000 sq.ft. potential, asking $2.250 million.

Can this lot be subdivided?
Listing says “potential” subdivision, which makes me suspect it cannot.
It’s frightening that you can build 9,000sf on such a small parcel. I guess it works if you want the mansion look with the privacy and charm of a rowhouse in Queens (probably nostalgic for the eventual owner).
9000sf will run you at least 2 million, and probably closer to 3 if the finishes are high end. Throw in landscaping, driveway etc, and it’s 3.5 all buttoned up. And two years!
So 5-6 million with no yard?
Why not just buy the house on Hidden Brook?
Better location, quieter, safer for kids….
Hamptons in Greenwich or something like that.
If their ask is 6.25 with no bites, 5 million all cash could get you in just time for the Dogwoods to bloom.
Agree with your analysis. However, the house on Hidden Brook really is an elephant on a pea (as observed by Mickster some time ago) and there is nothing to be done about that.
Will be interesting to see the sale price when reported for 234 Riverside. Should be around $2M as I predicted several months ago. 5 Indian Head not that far way got just north of $2M and is apparently waiting for the bulldozer to arrive in the spring.
Too bad about Indian Head, one of the few appropriate, pretty houses left in West Stamford.
West Stamford? It’s Riverside, not OG>
At least half of Riverside is now in West Stamford, and the other half is in Cos Cob!
I hope you’re right! Queens guys are hot!
If it were definitely divisible the price would be higher.
Riverside avenue .68 acre selling for 2.2!?
Is actually less than recent 12 watchtower land sale of 1.280 for .31 acre lot.
Neither are convienent in terms of walking distance to schools, but not bad spots either.
234 Riverside Avenue is just a very short walk to Riverside School and the train. Not so much to Eastern, now that it’s considered dangerous to cut across the tracks and walk up Hendrie Lane, but back in the day …
What is contract price? Given size of price reductions, I doubt it sold for 2.25.
Even at 2M
A 3-4M build, for that lot, meh
Contract, as opposed to sale prices, aren’t reported. Considering it took a price cut and still hung around on the market for a few months, I’d thing Dog Walker’s guess of $2 million is probably about right.
Riverside ave, to Spruce, to Summit, to Drinkwater…kind of a trek, and a bit risky at that “Mommies gone wild” hour of the day
Oh come on, we haven’t really reached the point where that’s considered a hazardous trek, have we?
My son, and many others, walked daily from Willowmere area. And he’s only been out of the school for two years.
Have you seen the new Escalade? Or the new Yukon XL/Suburban
Not to leave out the GL’s
These chicks are dangerous.
I did just see a new Escalade – it looks as big as a school bus,although it lacks a high-visibility-yellow paint job. Good lord.
If I had the 5 million in cash, I think Hidden Brook would be my new jam.
Math looks close for the subdivision. Starting with roughly 29,000 sq ft, you need two lots with 12,000 sq ft minimum plus lot shapes that accommodate a 60×100 rectangle plus room for the all the appropriate front/side/back yard setbacks. If you create a flag lot, the flag pole is probably not counted for FAR computations. Since you are subdividing, I wouldn’t count on getting any setback variances from ZBA. The seller not doing the homework to demonstrate all of that probably means that it wasn’t feasible. Although isn’t what happened with the two Kali-Nagy spec houses on Marks that the seller didn’t realize there could be a sub-division?
