I recently trashed a spec house at 248 Overlook Drive, disparaging its design. I based my comments on its photos, and readers, viewing those same shots, agreed. But this morning I received the following message from its builder, David VanHoeson, which made me think that I’d been unfair:
I hadn’t realized that Dave built this house, or I would have mentioned that he builds houses of exceptional quality, and I have long admired his work. This blog is intended to be a report on current real estate activity in Greenwich, with a hefty dose of personal opinion tossed in. Tastes differ, and photographs can lie, so if you’re looking for a house in this one’s price range, by all means, go to its open house Sunday and decide for yourself. Which, of course, you should do for any property mentioned here, regardless of my opinion.
