A great time with the family in Boulder Colorado; just the four of us, with one guest, so a quiet celebration, but a good one. I’m not sure whether I missed the 30-attendees dinners of the past, but it was certainly different. There’s probably room for both types of meals, alternated.
If it weren’t so expensive — Boulder prices make Greenwich real estate look cheap — I’d be tempted to stay there. Fifteen miles west of the city, the mountains were pelted with 15” of new snow, while the flats below were basking in 50-degree temperatures. That’s a nice combination, and the mountains that frame every view are spectacular, but alas, the Californians have taken over the area, bringing with them their politics and house pricing, so … pass.
Upon returning, I see that brother Gideon has inked a contract for 96 Club Road, in Riverside, asking $5.5 million, now, down quite a bit from its 2017 price of $7.5, but that’s the market and, to my wallet, that’s still a chunk of change.
Case in point regarding price shifts, 2 Lauder Way, purchased for $6.2 million in 2013, renovated and placed back up for sale in 2017 at $7.295, has now dropped to $5.295. Nice house, excellent location; the times they are a changing.
