Oops. Same house. Someone forgot to delete the old more pricey listing.
This is the former Kathrine Hepburn home on Fenwick, Old Saybrook. It’s been for sale for an eternity, even longer than an eternity, at one point asking was $28million. If you believe Zilow, it asked $30m for a crazy bit. Now, yours for a song, $11m.
This isn’t the only house on Fenwick peninsula sitting idle for a very long time, a very very long time. Walk up the street and you get these two….
Years ago Numbers 102A&B Sequassen were for sale as one unit at $13m. Two beautiful homes, both built in 2005 to look old, one main house, one guest house. On the water. Every amenity inside and out.
Alas, no one bit. Perhaps it’s the economy stupid, or more specifically the Connecticut economy stupid, the state is screwed thanks to a governor who has destroyed it one tax at a time. I guess anyone who wants to spend $13m is going to do so in Florida or any other state where there’s a chance the state will survive.
The Sequassen homes have now been split. You can buy one or the other, kinda. The Guest House, 3 bedrooms for $3.5m.
The Main House at $7.4million. But uh oh, there’s one small hitch. You can’t buy the guest house until the main house has been sold. PLEASE NOTE: This property may not be sold prior to sale of 102A Sequassen Avenue
So, in other words, both will sit for another five years. Unsold. It’ll be interesting to follow.
Very very cold again today but the sun is shining, for what that’s worth. The damn birds are chirping so at least they are happy. Me? I want some warmth, not keeping the fireplace flames alive, huddled around it with tea. Bring me some temps over 45!!
Nothing else major to report. Macon won. Obama given the Profiles in Courage Award by the Kennedy Honors society. Ha ha. Ha ha. Ha. Can’t make this stuff up. Next we know Obama will win a Nobel Prize for Peace. Oh wait!
Onward peeps. Enjoy the Monday, bundled up, except you Peter in Florida.
