Apparently that’s where the bargains are to be had – in Greenwich, CT! Long the enclave of the rich and famous, it is suffering from the general real estate malaise but also many younger families are not interested in buying these huge estates in the backwoods with 10 acres of land to maintain. This house actually made some headlines as it is heading to an action, unheard of for these tony neighborhoods. Owners are real estate investors who located to Florida for better taxes and just want to offload this property. Let’s have a look!
282 Round Hill Rd, Greenwich, CT: 4 beds, 4.5 baths, 5142 sq ft and 2.51 acres, originally listed for $3,795,000 it is currently for sale for $1,800,000 which is also the auction price. Taxes are $22,856.
This house needs a stager. So so freaking bad, I can’t stand it. Let’s look at the front:
It’s a beautiful house but you can’t see it, can you? Remove some of these overgrown trees and prune the rest!!! You should be able to see out from windows.
Entry is beautiful, I would remove/replace that bamboo table there.
Very nice living room but needs to be cleaned out. The owners are Iranian which explains these photos but you really ought to depersonalize the property before listing. More bamboo.
Paint, just paint and remove the couch and that bamboo table.
Dining room – did I say paint? And remove the bamboo?
Kitchen is little tricky but nothing crazy. Cabinets look very dated but in good condition. I would paint the cabinets, add some glass doors and change the countertops to something lighter. If there’s money left over, I’d change the shape of the island as well.
I can’t with this bamboo but I suppose it’s at least consistent. I’d take out the top wood doors on that row of cabinets and make them glass and add lighting inside. Remove that dinky little cabinet on the right.
Love this room, the stone and the sconces.
Plenty of closets but that nightmare wallpaper treatment is terribly distracting.
One of the bedrooms.
Other 2 bedrooms look pretty small.
The back of the house is really nice.
Love the pergola and I think that’s a fireplace to the right of it? Nope, nevermind that’s where the pool equipment is at.
