|RON ZOMBIE'S WOODBURY RETREAT |
A highly unlikely property for a rocker to own - and we'll see if his celebrity will be leverage against some of the things that buyers don't seem to relate to any longer. Low ceilings, vintage homes, and charm - but who knows, celebrity sometimes resonates with a buyer who wants bragging rights - look at Ron Howard's Conyers Farms estate - rumor has it that it has a deal after just a few weeks. Not that this has equal footing, but everything's relative.
The property is beautiful but unfortunately, there are no photos of the 22+ acres...nor are there photos of the lighted tennis court, or in ground pool :-(
|ONE OF A FEW ORIGINAL FIREPLACES |
|RESTORED WITH ORIGINAL BEAMS AND FLOORS|
|CHARM WITH TECH|
|2200 SF BARN|
|OLD WITH NEW|
like a broken record (actually millenials might not recognize the
relevance of this expression) but the highlights are again in Riverside.
Two contracts -
|36 GRIFFITH RD - LIST: $1,079,000|
has not been on the market for years - the sellers bought it in 1979
and short of going to town hall to further investigate the sales
history, let's just say that they are probably making out OK on this
|83 S. LANCER RD - LIST: $1,050,000|
has been on the market for years but has served as a rental - but most
likely with resistance to rent above $4200, it will be an end user. Seller bought it in 2002 for $697,000
and succeeded in renting it for $4150 but failed to sell it at $999,000
in 2005 (is Riverside exceeding the bubble?) it expired at $1,069,000
and $4500 for rent in 2013 and now there's a contract...
I drive by this home at least 4 times a week, and in recent weeks, I have noticed workers like bees swarming the place - there may have been some things found at inspection, which is not surprising, given the long and tired history...Since 2005, when it was on the market for $4,495,000 - to the most recent listing when it was owned by USA Blue Dragon, LLC - cancel > expire > cancel > expire > cancel...or it could be a savvy buyer who wanted to right the ship...
This was then - looking cheerful
This is now - looking repaired but not so lush
The long and winding road
98 Riverdale Ave Extension, has a contract. It's been on the market
so long, we could have had a time lapse video to show how the cedar
shakes have changed color during the life of on market days....
Here we were in 2006 when it was priced at $925,000
Here we are in 2014
with an offer and a list of $625,000 - my preference is to feature the
stone wall - and the angle, for this property, is just better than the
... and on a personal level - I like the American flag - call me not PC
This cape built in 1940 and last "renovated" in the
80's - has 1910 SF, 3 bedrooms, 2 full and 1/2 bath, 1 fireplace, .12
acre - GB zoning will allow for a small business.
