Too late, this baby has sold! Still, it amazes me you can get an actual house in this town for well under $400,000. And it’s not like this one got snapped up.

Nope, it came on for $419,000 back in July, got one big price reduction in November, down to $350,000, made a deal in January, and has now closed at the bargain price of $340,000.

I suppose out-of-towners would smirk at my use of the word “bargain” for this charming little dump on .18 acres, but gosh-darned it, it sounds cheap, doesn’t it??

  1. That thing needs to be torn down but that far west it seems unlikely. Oh well, it’s an eyesore so any type of renovation would be an improvement. Not to mention this is a two family zone so can build condos if your heart so desires.

    • Anony:
      Yep, I agree. Whether something’s a “tear down” in Greenwich depends on two things, the street and the lot size. In this particular case, the lot’s actually slightly over-sized for the R-6 zone (it has 7,840 sq. ft. in a zone that requires a minimum of 7,500 sq.ft.), but the street’s probably not a candidate for spec-building.

  2. The house could be quite cute, actually. Put cedar shingles on it, repaint the trim and shutters, redo the front steps, throw on a dormer or two, nix the screen door.
