Ciao, Monticello

We're getting to that time of year when the car companies start hinting that you should buy your lifetime sweetie a new ride for Christmas. A Lexus with a gigantic bow around it in the driveway. The keys to a new Mercedes in the stocking.

There are some holiday gifts that need no fantasy sales pitch or extra adornments, though.

2100 Pine (5br/5ba, 3100 sq. ft.) probably fits in that category.

As we've noted twice in a week, this is a newer, custom-built "timeless classic with a distinctly American flavor." (See more in "Monticello Returns" and our recent "Weekend Opens" post.)

Though the home sold for $2.1m in March of this year, the new owners faced a job change and offered it back for $1.995m.

The home, once dubbed "Monticello" in a misdirected – though successful – sales pitch, has now found buyers within a week.

If they close relatively quickly, the house keys can go in the stocking this year.

It's a high-caliber house, clearly one of the top 3 or so to be offered on the public market in the Tree Section this year. It's no surprise to see people move fast.

And now that the home-buying's done, it's time to focus on the things for which it's really important to give thanks.

Best to you and all on the holiday.
