Truly bizarre

460 North street.jpg

A couple of readers alerted me to an article in the WSJ yesterday reporting on the sale of 460 North Street for $22 million, $2 million above asking price. I'm not linking to it because it's behind the Journal's cash wall, but you can see my previous post from a couple of weeks ago on its pending sale, here.

Is it possible that there were two buyers silly enough to want to pay this much for this house? I suppose that's the most likely explanation, though I wonder whether the sale included some of the very expensive art work on the walls.

Either way, my prediction is that we can expect to see a sharp discount from this selling price when it next hits the market.
