New agent, new price; still a very nice house, but cheaper

One Hobart Drive is back, down from $4.995 to $4.495 million. Without knowing the circumstances, I feel bad seeing these agent switches because it’s almost always the price that’s at fault, not the poor agent’s efforts. Then again, who set that price? Usually, the owner, but not always.

In any event, One Hobart is looking good. Custom built — really — in 2002, resold in 2008 for $5.8, the current owners did a great job redecorating and redoing the house, to pleasing effect, to my eye.

I still question the wisdom of sinking a huge amount of money in Connecticut real estate right now (or, judging from developing election results, anywhere in the US), but if I were forced to live in Greenwich for the next five years or so and was willing to toss the samovar, without regret, off the sled to the approaching wolves some dark winter from now, I’d consider this one.
