A client just asked me about 156 Stanwich Road, a great old 1936 colonial overlooking Greenwich Country Club. Sold in 2009 for $2,450,000, came back on December 12th for $2,875,000, now under contract! %#@&!!
Current owners made all sorts of improvements (click “documents” on listing link), including a great new pool/guest house and beautiful master bathroom suite. As you will see from the photos, the furnishings are a bit… a little….er.. what’s the polite word for “dowdy”? But who cares? It apparently made no difference to the buyer.
The lesson? Once again a smart asking price proves that, even in a “slow” market, you can unload a Greenwich property immediately if you really want to.
