66 Cherry Valley Road, still priced at $10,000,888 and still ugly as a boot is still with us, having been relisted today after the old listing expired. Designed in 1995 by the late Ulrich Franzen, who (I had to look him up, many years ago) was an architect of the Brutalist School, and it certainly shows its pedigree.
I’d just started writing about real estate in 2003 when the previous owner put it up for sale at $18 million. I laughed at it then, and though the owner was furious and complained loudly, I think he got lucky when he found this present owner, who paid $11.4 for it in 2005.
I’m a much kinder person today than I was sixteen years ago so I won’t laugh. I will, however, point out that the pond still needs mowing, and the asking price a good clipping.
