Just ... No

19 South End Court, in Old Greenwich, cut its price today to $3.495 million, down from its 2017 pre-construction price of $3.848. The latest listing claims 5,490 square feet, while the previous broker was more forthright: 3,650 above grade, 1,840 below grade. The fact that the builder chose to stuff a pair bedrooms in the basement does not, in my opinion, mean that their area should be included in the square footage recital.

The location is great: walk to town. After that, everything falls off the cliff.

I refrain from making cruel comments about new listings, but after a property has been on the market for a full year, as this one has, and the market's had its opportunity to view it, consider it, and scream its disapproval, let's have at it.

It's still under construction, so we'll have to hold off on any consideration of its interior, but the exterior shots are damning enough. 

 Someone had to look at this design while it was still on paper and exclaim, "yeah, THAT'S what I want!" (Notice the carport to the right, by the way)

 Speaking of cliffs, imagine the effect when the little ranch next door is replaced by a full-sized house
