Riverside sale

44 Glen Avon.jpg

44 Glen Avon Drive, $4,662,500. The sellers paid $4.475 for the house when it was newly-built in 2004, so no home run here, but not a terrible loss, either, unlike some other areas of town. That's due in part to Glen Avon's (deserved, in my opinion) popularity.

I was a little surprised to see that the cedar roof, installed in 2003-2004, has already been replaced. I know that cedar roofs have a short lifespan despite their high cost, but 14 years seems like an unusually  brief existence. Reader, what's your experience with these things?
