(Well okay, almost every house sells for less than its asking price, but I thought it was a cute follow-up to the header below. In any event, here are three new listings.)
19 Indian Head Road, new today, wants $5.2 million, at least for now. The house next door, same era, same broker, started at $4.7 a couple of years ago and ended at $3.9, and a similar fate may await this one. Nice house, great location, but at some point, there’s a limit, no? We’ll see.
197 Stanwich Road, $2.395 million, looks intriguing and I wish I could see it tomorrow at its open house, but I had to return to Maine for a bit – I’ll ask Gideon or the Mickster for a review. There doesn’t seem to be much left of the original 1850 house, but really, who actually wants to live like their great-grandparents did?
And 250 Old Church Road, $3.3 million, could be interesting. I like the Austin Peterson firm’s designs, generally, although the house they designed on Cos Cob Harbor on Lowther Point seems to grow uglier in my eyes every time I pass it heading out; I suppose everyone’s allowed a screw-up now and then, even with a $30 million house. This one looks pretty good, although the back yard, at least in its photos, seems postage sized. Again, I’ll have to rely on others report back tomorrow.
UPDATE: A reder corrects me – it was Shope Reno that designed the Loather Point house, not Austin Peterson – my apologies to the latter firm for linking their name to this oddity.
