Pending just a few days ago, now sold

599 Lake Avenue has closed at $2.625 million. Not so long ago, that price would have been pretty close to land value, but now it’s house and land. I discussed this property earlier this week before its final sale price had been reported, but Ill repeat that it’s been carried on our grand list at $5,619,200, and if this present value is typical of what’s happening over in the “Golden Triangle”, taxpayers throughout town should brace themselves.

Not precisely in accord with today’s taste, but the listing claims it was “custom built” ( a flexible term in realtorese) but it seemed well built, and if the design can be refigured to get the master bedroom moved upstairs, not a bad buy.

 this will have to go, obviously
