Go west, young man; just don't build a house there

25 Selden Lane, off Riversville on our western border, is still kicking around after eight years. Owners paid $2.275 million for its 7 acres (two lots) in 1998 and put it back up for sale again in 2008 for $7.5 million.

Both lots, with house, can be yours today for $2.295.

In fact, at this price, it looks pretty good.

UPDATE: As several readers have pointed out, I erred when in an earlier draft I said that the house was circa 2007. In fact it dates back to 1987. I regret the error, and hope no one placed a bid on it based on my misreading of my own notes.
