Quick sale on Zaccheus Mead

144 Zaccheus Mead Lane, asking $1.950 million, found a buyer in 33 days and closed for $1.925. That's a great improvement over the last time, when it was listed at $2.795 in 2010 and finally sold in 2012 for $1.825; shows what a good price can achieve.

I really liked this house. Built in 1936, it still has a slate roof, and is, to my taste, gracious and even charming (that's probably a biased opinion, because it reminds me very much of the house I grew up in on Riverside's Gilliam Lane).

It has just three bedrooms (room to add one more), and it's "only" 1.5 acres in the R-2 zone, but those 1.5 acres are beautifully planted =, and how much lawn do you want to maintain, anyway?

Seems to me that the buyers got a very nice house for just about the land's value. I hope they're planning to hang on to their (almost) free house.
