109 Pecksland Road has sold, for $3.2 million. That’s a curious price, because the place expired, unsold, last October while asking $2.995 million. Why would someone pay more than what they know the seller was willing to accept a few months ago? I don’t know – if you run into the new owners at a cocktail party, ask them.
I think I did a decent enough summary of this place back in August, 2013, so I’ll just paste here what I wrote then.
…. 109 Pecksland, a 1755 house that was rendered unrecognizable as such long ago but still clings to three of the original acres, has chopped another $400,000 off its price and is now asking $3.295 million. David Ogilvy brought this on back in 2011 for $4.7 and after that failed, another agent picked it up, cut its price to $3.695 and added the information on its listing sheet that the property was owned by a “life balance guru”. That’s a term I certainly don’t recognize nor, judging from the lack of results, does anyone else. My guess is that this price cut will be more helpful in finding a buyer than pyramid power.
