27 today: that includes some rentals, condos and a number of retreads but still, an encouraging sign. Here are some of interest:
1 North Street, the North Street in Cos Cob off Valley Road, is priced at $799,000. It sold for $880,000 in 2008 so that sounds like a pretty good deal. I really like this neighborhood, but be warned: the houses are mostly high on a hill with limited, but by no means non-existent back yards. Nice old houses, modestly restored. I think this is a pretty nifty micro-neighborhood of interesting homes – you might like it too.
17 Ronald, also off Valley, is far more conventional but at $935,000, not a crazy price.
There are two land parcels on the Midwood off Glenville Road, one, 24 Midwood, is an acre, priced at $1.2 million and the other, 2 Midwood, is two acres, $1.350. Same owner, but I don’t know if the two parcels are abutting – guess I’ll find out. It’s the R-1 zone, Glenville, Western school districts. Close to all the private schools, if that matters to you.
152 Lockwood in Riverside, $1.995. I haven’t seen it yet. Kind of built into the hill but there may be more yard behind.
62 Wesskum seems to present an opportunity to gauge the market. It sold for $2.205 million in 2005, again in 2009 for $2.025 and now it’s asking, with no changes worth noting on its listing sheet, $2.550 million. Has Riverside really gone up so much? We’ll find out.
150 Bedford/Cutler Road is 12 acres, asking $3.6, or $2.5 for eight and $900,000 for the other four acres. I might offer the 8-acre price and demand that the other 4 be tossed in for free, but that’s just because I’m pushy.
17 Dorchester in Riverside is back, asking $2.825 million. It sold for $2.875 in 2008, so obviously its owner and the owner of 62 Wesskum Wood aren’t talking to each other about Riverside market trends.
