Even in the dead of summer, Riverside waterfront sells

21 Willowmere Circle, a spectacular piece of land (0.89 acre), direct waterfront when the tide’s in, dock, pool and a great neighborhood, came on May 29th at $7.450, quickly dropped to $6.850 and is reported under contract today. Given the relatively short time that’s expired, I’d guess that the agreed upon price is well into the $6s. I’d thought this would go in the 5s because, to my eye, someone would want to tear the existing house down and build new. I don’t know the plans of the buyer but obviously the dated condition of the house didn’t deter him. Ann Simpson listing, and good for her.

How much is a water view worth?

But you can't see the mud at high tide!

But you can't see the mud at high tide!

21 Willowmere Circle is listed for sale today at $7.450 million. The land is very nice – right up the creek from my own house so naturally, I wish the sellers the very best of luck, but I don’t remember the house as being remarkable (no, that’s not it to the left, I’m just being funny). The seller’s agent must agree, because we have eight pictures on the on-line listing and just two (?) of those are of the house. Hmm. So, for the sake of argument, it’s a building lot with a great pool and wonderful waterviews half the day and fascinating mudflats the rest. How much is that worth? We’ll see. Willowmere Circle is a great neighborhood, so that adds a lot of value too. Again, as a creek neighbor, I’ll watch this one with as much interest as front Row Phil is eying the progress of 2 Nimitz Place in Havemeyer. I was going to post one of those great views, by the way, but the format isn’t supported by this blog template. I don’t know what’s up with that.
