It’s getting there

6 glen road

6 Glen Road

6 Glen Road, which started in June at the ridiculous price of $1.795 million, has been dropped to $1.395 million. I’m not saying that this is finally the right price, but it’s closer.

Glen Road’s a busy cut-through and, with all respect to the current owners’ taste, the decorating here seems a bit fussy for the younger couples who comprise the likely buyer pool for this house. That’s a silly quibble, because no one keeps a newly purchased house decorated as the previous owners did, and nothing’s easier to change, but it can still deter buyers.

    CF,

    Does the fuss include a through the wall A/C unit protruding from the front of the house?

  2. My blogging pal Julia who hosts Hooked on Houses has a post today about a charmer for sale in Riverside, on Lake Drive. Very pretty.

      That’s a beauty! Right around a couple of corners from where Chris and I grew up. Right across from the railroad, but at least it’s an easy walk if commuting.

      • That whole street looks beautiful, full of classic old homes now renovated with young happy families living in them. Is $2.7 steep for this house? I imagine the short walk to the train station adds several hundred thousand to the asking price plus column.

          The “Lake” is greatly exaggerated, really a smallish pond. Doubt there is any premium for walk to train in this location-close enough to be offset by the train noise discount. I do think this is priced about right for an older home.

    Hillary looks none too happy when asked if she’s been questioned by the FBI. Video clip. https://quittingiseasy.com/2016/01/will-clinton-get-prosecuted/

    Yikes, the rooms in this home are tiny. That and the cut through street location hurts. Probably a 1,050k place.

    How the heck did they fit 2,927 sft in there? Does that include the basement?

    is this down to land value?
