Three new contracts are reported. Mind you, the pending sales of two of them might not give too much cheer to sellers of big ticket homes but hey, at least there are buyers.
32 Lower Cross Road has a contract, asking $7.1 million. That’s great, but it did start off, long, long ago, (April, 2012) at $11.750.
Another old chestnut dating back to 2012 is 5 Kernan Place, in Old Greenwich, most recently asking $3.3 million. It once asked $4.5. I’ve always liked this house, and so so over the years, but a 6 bedroom home screams for lots of children, and this one has no yard. That proved to be a tough sell.
And 16 Mortimer Drive, Old Greenwich, new, post-Sandy construction, sold in October 2014 for $2.940 in 2014, was placed back up for sale just bout moth ago t $3.175, and has a buyer. Completely FEMA compliant, as you’ll note from the stairs leading up to it, but apparently the prospect of carting groceries and children up those stairs is not a deterrent.
