One bright spot is the news that one of the great Tree Section offerings has a buyer.700 35th
, as MBC has said before:
is a lovely, large (5br/4ba, 3675 sq. ft.) home in a quiet location with a seriously large yard (for the Trees).
The listing can still be viewed while in "backup offer" status. But if you haven't seen the house (2003 build) in person, it's hard to get the whole picture.
MBC most recently lavished attention on this home in March with "Back Again on 35th
," though the history goes farther back. We called a pricing poll
11 months ago, and reported the results
2 weeks later.
The capsule version of this listing's story: The sellers paid $2.5m
in 2006, tried to get $2.7m
in 2008, and realized in 2009 that they'd better try closer to $2.3m
Last priced at $2.349m
. We'll see where this ends up. Someone's getting a terrific house; we can debate whether it's a bargain.
Not so great news: 132 2nd
, the Sand Section walkstreet home along Manhattan Ave., has fallen out of escrow. So our previous story, titled, "A 2nd Deal?
" apparently was a question that has now been answered "no."
