|The picture perfect kitchen at 26 Beechcroft|
Take the two properties that sold in record time and the two that sat much too long on the market and their final trade prices:
6 Lita Drive: Sold in just 30 days with a list price of $1.395 million and traded at $1.271 million. This 1957 ranch home sits on .31 and was owned by a wonderful woman, Eddie Beck, who was the first female doctor in Greenwich, having received her medical degree from Yale in 1948. I was lucky enough to have known Eddie, who was a familiar face and active at First Presbyterian Church.
18 Shoal Point Lane, Riverside: Priced at $5,195 million and selling 73 days later at $5 million, this 5,702 square foot waterfront home with dock is on .58 acres.
SOLD BUT TOOK SOME TIME
100 Club Rd, Riverside: 2 waterfront acres on the road that Riverside Yacht Club is on, this land started out at $6,995 million and sat for quite a while--515 days to be exact. It wasn't until the property was reduced to under $4 million that the market took notice and sold at $4,250 million against its final list price of $3,995 million.
26 Beechcroft: Designed by New Haven architect Sam Mitchell, this home was something special in design and construction quality. It started out 865 days earlier at $7.95 million and traded -23% off it's list price at $6,123,800. I am pretty sure that it took every bit of the original list price to design and build such a special home but the market is the market.
