I have a history of getting a bit carried away with properties like this, but dagnabbit, this place is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.
140 Wallacks Drive is a 3 1/2 acre island off the coast of Stamford, and to me, it represents the epitome of waterfront living. It seems to satisfy every possible “requirement” I could ever think of for a waterfront investment (ok, it’s Stamford, not Hawaii, but other than that…)
• Plenty of land
• Safe elevation
• Huge beach
• Deepwater dock
• Waterside pool (plus what appears to be a semi-natural “pool” that captures Long Island Sound water.
• Classic, turn-of-the-century mansion
• Substantial guest house (stash the relatives, never have to see them!)
• Nearly 360 degrees of water views
It started at the fanciful price of $18,900,000. Worse still, the listing sheet warned brokers that any looker needed to be “pre-quailified”. It has been my experience that listings with that requirement don’t sell.
Two good brokers C orrection: Three good brokers (one was a dual-listing) have tried and failed so far, so I suspect the problem here may be the owner.
