Fruitless toil in the vineyards


32 Vineyard Lane, purchased for $13.750 million in 2006, has been searching for a buyer for some time now, without success. Today its price was cut to $8.950.

It’s a 1930 house, beautifully updated and expanded (a bit) to 12,000 sq.ft., on 4 1/2 acres on a good street, so nothing’s wrong here that the right price won’t cure. The trouble seems to be finding the right price.
