Nope, it’s not. The street record belongs to 1 Bramble Lane, that fetched $4,050,000 in 2008. Second and third place goes to 26 Bramble, it got $3,725,000 in August, 2007, and then sold again, in February of this year, for $3,497,419.
So, for fourth place bragging rights, I give you…

This was one of the many, many 1950’s split-level style tear-downs on Bramble and surrounding streets. As you’ll see on the above link, it sold for $1,250,000 in November, 2011. From start to finish, the builder got the job done in just one year and four months, which seems like quick work, given all the government-caused impediments that builders face.
The on-going replacement of the housing stock on the streets around Riverside School is, on the whole, a good thing. Sure, some of them look a bit oversized for their lots, but they all represent a huge improvement over the houses they replace. The 1950’s split-levels served their owners well over the years, but these days, their low ceilings and frankly “odd” layouts no longer cut it.
