$9 million for 14,000 square feet on upper North Street? I think not.

 Oh, goody! Another overpriced mansion added to the inventory

808 North Street is newly listed today at $8.988 million. That price is a slight consession by the owners, bless their hearts, that they suffered an error in judgment when they paid $11,368,500 for this stone pile back in 2005, but is it enough? Probably not.

The house is a 1997 Jordan Saper construction which he sold back then for $4.250, and that might be an appropriate price today, too. Saper never met a human being he was willing to scale his houses to, and this one is no exception: there's not a single room one can comfortably occupy except, perhaps, a few of the coat closets. As for the current demand for 14,000 sq. ft. houses crammed onto four acres a dozen miles from town, the market has been speaking quite loudly by remaining silent.

Give this a couple of years, then pitch that 1997 price to the owners.

 This is what passes as a "breakfast nook" — seems a tad cold, to me
