The old family homestead at 9 William Street, Riverside, razed and replaced, has closed at $4.425 million. The new construction was not to my particular taste, but the sale price should make every other owner on our tiny street happy: we had trouble, when selling mother's house, getting agents to appreciate the 5-house lane's quirky appeal. This should help.

14 Hycliff Road, off Riversville, did not fare as well, however. It sold for just $3.;8 million, after starting off at $7.4 many years and many brokers ago, and down considerably from the $5.8 million its owners paid for it, when new, in 2005. To be fair, that 2005 price was ludicrous.
