So, word of the death of the back country seems to have been exaggerated (by me). 33 John Street, $15.5 million. There’s a mixed bag of results up here, with most of the older mansions taking huge hits but newer ones like this one, built in 2011, are still finding buyers. This makes two large sales announced just today. Bonus time on Wall Street.
The house is relatively modest for homes up here: 9,000 sq.ft., and its interior is modern and light, which does set it apart from many of its older peers.
