 45 Lismore Lane

45 Lismore Lane

David Ogilvy listed 45 Lismore Lane at $2.995 million in 2004 and it sold immediately (as it should have - it was a very nice house for the right person) via bidding war for $3.010 million. He's brought it back today for the estate of that buyer and has again listed it below $3, at $2.950. I haven't seen it yet but judging from the pictures (taken in the summer, for some reason), nothing's changed on its exterior, and the listing makes no mention of any improvements, so it's a fair assumption that the house remains the same today as it was 13 years ago. 

In fact, not even Ogilvy's description has changed all that much.

Here's the 2004 listing:
