Price war, and in mid-country even

21 Baldwin Farms South

21 Baldwin Farms South

21 Baldwin Farms S. listed at $3.495 million back in April and was immediately engulfed in a bidding war. The prevailing buyer paid $3.550 last week. Nice house, but I have almost never seen a “winner” of one of these things come out ahead, long term. Maybe this will be the exception; after all, if there were multiple people interested in buying it, surely that will also be true five years or so down the line.

Yet that rarely proves the case.

  1. Wanna know what’s worse than a bathtub in front of a window??? A tub in front of a mirror! Yikes.

    Problem is that buyers invariably decide to ‘update’ their purchase and the project gets out of hand, they spend a small fortune and decide to move a few years later, losing most if not all of their $6/7/800k spent on ‘updates’.

  3. Didn’t expect much with the first pic, but, there is a lot to like with this house as one scrolls through the photographs.

    This is a very nice house- great land, great floor plan, additions that make sense and look like they were designed to align and not overpower the original house.

    Re the ‘losers in a bidding war’- these buyers didn’t pay that much over ask so I would hope that they will be OK- or as OK as anyone will be buying any other $3.5MM house today.

    This is the nicest house in the low-to-mid-three price range in Greenwich proper (south of the parkway anyway) to come on to the market this year. It was priced to move and got snapped up quickly.
