Well, dammit, it is. I’m talking about 465 Round Hill Road, which started out at around $13M four years ago. Now, three or four listing brokers later ,it can be stolen for $10.995M!
Think I’m crazy, do ya? Well, how’s these for comps:
435 Round Hill Road (about three doors away, closed for $20M, Nov. 2009)
2 Wooddale Road (came on last week at $11.995M, bam! got a quick deal)
More importantly, though, is this: The owners of 465 Round Hill Road did something interesting and smart, they de-decorated the interior somewhat. Nothing wrong with the previous look, in fact, I loved it (the listing photos still show it), but now, most of the curtains are gone, the wallpaper’s been eliminated, and everything looks clean and stream-lined, much like 2 Wooddale, come to think of it.
Hard to imagine needing to spruce up an $11M house in order to appeal to “younger buyers” (a perfect starter home for the little darlings!), but I think that was the motive here, and it works.
