Good news from the north country


214 Clapboard Ridge Road — 8 acres at the Round Hill side of Clapboard — has closed at $5.1 million*. That isn’t the $7.595 the owner was hoping for when he listed it in May, 2018, but it’s still a large sum, and assuming someone is planning to sink a few million into restoring this 1940 home, it’s good news for the neighbors, because it means that other rich folks still want to buy up here.

* We reported on it last month when it went pending, still listed at $6.195. The buyer achieved a notable discount from that last asking price.
