Every once in a while I have to drop the keyboard and actually sell real estate! Very busy out there, not just for me.
Ok, so where was I? Oh yes, my brother Chris. Chris Fountain has taken the liberty of introducing my newest listing at 10 Martin Dale. Great and swell, any publicity is good publicity (ha!) but perhaps I can do a better job describing it.
Martin Dale is one of those little streets you drive past a million times but never quite notice. This suits its residents just fine; they get to live really, really close to the center of town, but have an nearly traffic-free road to live on. If you have a cat or a kid, they will live past the age of 3, a comforting thought.
Number 10 Martin Dale is a true classic, a 1940’s gambrel-roof “cape-colonial” with a stone front that is actually made of stone. It has a slate roof, a brand-new circular driveway, and an absolutely HUGE yard. The lot is 1 1/2 times the size of the required minimum in the R-20 zone, so if you need it, you can build 7,086 square feet plus the lower level. The kitchen is new, the generator (whole-house, gas-fired) is new, and there is extensive new landscaping.
Best of all, you are a certified* one minute (you heard me correctly) from the entrance of Greenwich Academy and about 1 minute and 36 seconds from Brunswick School. Which means if you were any closer to Greenwich Avenue, you’d be woken at least once every year by that noisy St. Patrick’s Day parade!
*To make this time, you will be required to hit 78 MPH on that last stretch of North Maple. But just for 100 feet or so, Officer!
