After taking a little Thanksgiving vacation, 24 Crescent is back on the market at $1.449m. Although the property backs up to the off-ramp off I-95, the house has a great backyard, is on one of my favorite streets and has tons of charm. It's an interesting plus/minus play for a potential buyer who wants to stay in the mid $1s and wants the street & backyard.
This is one of my favorite listings in Greenwich. Beautiful turn of the century home. Has been abandoned for a little while and is now in the midst of "bank issues". With a little love, I think it could be brought back beautifully. I love the bones. So much potential with 3rd floor and basement buildouts.
You will rarely hear me talk negatively on the web about any house in Greenwich. I'm not saying that there aren't bad listings and bad houses, I just don't think this is the right venue. I just won't mention a house if I'm not a fan. If you want my opinion about a house I'm not talking about please feel free to email me for a one on one conversation. I won't hold back. With that all behind us, I do have one bone to pick today. I'm not a fan of listing any house when you don't have photographs available. When a house is listed on the MLS it gets put into the special daily hotsheet that is read by all good agents. This is a free extremely powerful chance to showcase your listing and if you don't have a picture you are missing the spot. I read the hotsheet every day to see what is going on and what I can talk about.Today there were 8 new listings, but I'm only able to talk about two as six of them didn't have pictures... (there is a good chance that I won't remember those six houses until they come up on an open house day or search of my own).Here are the two house that did have pictures:55 Shore - Fantastic location/street. Expensive for 4,200 sqft, but you get 5 full baths and the chance to crawl to the water34 Hendrie - Great house/layout that is not new to the market as it has been on since June, but has come down to $3.395m from $3.895m
