30 Northway, in Lucas Point, is back with a new broker and a new price, $7.995 million, down from last year’s $10.450. Wonderful location, but this 1937, 3,000 sq. ft. house is in the VE zone, so it will have to be replaced with a much higher structure. Great views, though.

45 Midwood Road, in Deer Park, is new – $4.750 million. Owners paid $3.375 for it in 2012, expanded it from 3,804 sq.ft. to 5,553 (a good portion of which seems to have been taken up converting a screened porch into permanent interior space) and totally renovated it.

My only caution would be that the new listing declines to offer a view of the front, which makes me think it wasn’t changed from the rather modest face it presented from 1957-2012. That wouldn’t bother me, but ordinarily, buyers in the $5 million range want more pizazz. Here’s that view, from a couple of years ago:
