11 Stallion Trail asking $2.950 million, reported a contingent contract back on December 28th, has moved ahead to pending. That’s an unusually long time between a contract and the satisfaction of all contingencies, but still, it got done.
The owner paid $2.5 million for this in 1987, started off this time at $4.849 a year ago, and ended up here (or lower, depending on its final negotiated price). I don’t imagine capital gains will be an issue.
And Cos Cob continues to buzz, with 15 Taylor Drive, listed at $1.595, also pending. It’s listing claims it’s just “minutes from shopping”, but that does the location a disservice: hop the fence, stroll across the asphalt and you’ve got drugs, fish and booze, all practically at your doorstep.
That said, Taylor Dive manages to be a quiet, very decent street despite the presence of the CVS mall, and this particular house is a good one, built in 2009. The asked-for price might be a tad high, but assuming a bit of a negotiated discount, I get it.
