17 Sabine Farms Road is new to the market today, priced at $8.1 million. The sellers purchased this for $8.2 back in 2005, after it had been marked down from $10, and despite money put into it since then, I'm pretty sure that their disappointment at not recovering at least that purchase price will continue to grow over the years.
Possibly a good indication of what's wrong with this house, aside from it being just another iteration of the boring Greenwich mega-mansion architecture circa 2002, is that almost half of the listing photographs are devoted to the basement amenities. I mean, really? The best features of a house are the kid's drum-practice room, an unused wine cellar, and an exercise room designed by Dr. Mengele for the comfort of his guests?
Hang on to your wallet on this one, and wait for it to ripen.
