And pending in Cos Cob

171 Cognewaugh Road, last asking price, $3.995 million. New in either 2016 or '17 (the listing is unclear, and the tax card hasn't caught up with the construction), it was listed in May, 2017 for $4.985, which obviously was aspirational, but still, I'm sure the builder here is making out just fine.

The listing claims 7 bedrooms and 8,048 sq. ft., but two of those bedrooms are in a separate 1,200 sq.ft. cottage. That's not a bad thing at all — who needs more tan five bedrooms in the main house? — but a little bit deceptive. Certainly the buyer has discovered the discrepancy by now, however. Does the total square footage also include the finished basement? I don't know.
