Bidding war in Old Greenwich

30 Park Avenue, selling price, $2.850 million, asking price, $2.795 It was listed March 4, and had contract within a week.

Park Avenue is great street, with friendly neighbors and an easy walk to the school, the train and Village shopping. My only quibble, and it’s not the seller’s fault, is the one car “FARport”. These things re built so as to permit a house itself to have usable space within the limits imposed by our Floor Area Regulations. In the twenty years since we imposed these on ourselves, no one has been able to persuade me that allowing a door on a carport would adversely affect the neighborhood.

The bicycle thieves from Stamford appreciate our thoughtfulness, but who else?
