After two years on the market at $12.995 million, 17 Aiken Road was dropped today to $9.995. It's quite a house — in fact, compared to replacement cost, it's probably a bargain — although it failed to fetch the $21 million its owner (and then listing agent David Ogilvy) hoped for in 2006-2007. You can't always get what you want.
The current listing describes it as "AN ESTATE LIKE NO OTHER. FOR THE MOST CREATIVE AMONG US" — perhaps that's a reference to creative financing?
Pretty cool digs, though.
