The dog days of summer have past and we are enjoying glorious, warm sunny days as August slides into September. Real estate in your neighborhood has boomed with 8 sales against only 2 from 2015. It is still a buyers market but the good news is that more buyers are coming into Cornwall.

Here are the 8 sales to report:

Town Street/Yelping Hill a 19.69 acre parcel of land was sold to this leasehold community by another community member whose family had owned it independently for several decades for $73,500. This acreage is wooded and hilly and abuts the log cabin on MacCracken Road which we have listed for sale.

 

15 Stone Hill Road was also a land sale of 3.3 acres for $145,000. Chris Garrity our partner/broker brought his clients to this purchase after selling their homein Sharon. This subdivision of 4 lots was created by the adjacent Scoville farm and 2 lots have homes built. This lot offers a view over farmland and beyond and a house site has been cleared.

 

99 Sharon Goshen Turnpike was an estate sale of a most attractively sited barn/house with a pool on 2.3 acres with great views overlooking the hills. Rick Meehan originally listed this property at $390,000 and after a year on the market it had been reduced to $325,000 and David Bain brought in the buyers for $295,000.

 

83 Todd Hill Road is an antique farmhouse I listed on 1 acre with a detached 3 car garage and workshop. There is a large fenced garden area which still blooms with many perennials. Originally this house had a Sharon Goshen Turnpike address (discovered when switching over the electricity).Listed at $199,000 it sold quickly for $175,000.

 

4-6 Cornwall Hollow Road was also my listing. A handsome early 1900's house with 2 large barns in the backyard, on 3.75 acres and ready for renovation attracted the right buyer, a contractor. 9 foot ceilings, a most gracious front hall, 2 fireplaces, eat-in kitchen, 2 porches, 5 bedrooms and 2 baths…all in need of updating. It was originally listed at $225,000, reduced to $195,000 and my buyer paid $170,000.

 

A Cornwall Hollow Road lot of 7.43 acres sold for $16,000. It was sold to an adjacent Johnson Road home owner. The lot drops down from the road and includes some wetland.

 

 

 

 

 

23 Johnson Road is a 1800 antique colonial with a beautiful front porch. This home had been recently renovated with a gourmet kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 3 baths all on 10 acres.

Originally listed at $825,000 it sold for $780,000.

 

163 Cornwall Hollow Road is a 1992 Colonial house on 25 acres bounded on one side by the Hollenbeck River with a small writer's cottage at the bank and a large 2 car garage/barn part way up the long driveway. Spacious and well built nonetheless this was one of those properties that took over a year to sell with dramatic price drops. Originally priced at $699,000 and reduced to $599,000 it sold for $500,000.

 

Of course with all those sales, we have virtually nothing left to report for sale.

17 MacCracken Road at Yelping Hill is my listing and it is a charming one bedroom log cabin listed at $185,000. The owner teaches at Northwestern University, goes west to the San Juan Islands to teach in the summer so reluctantly the cabin is now offered for sale.

 

Each summer I also have one of the original Ruth Adams stone cottages for rent as well,

12 MacCracken Road with 5 bedrooms. So if you have any friends who would like to experience a Cornwall summer, please send them to me. July and August are $4000/month and $1500/per week; June and September are $3000/month and $1000/week .

 

We hope you enjoy our neighborhood updates and invite you to stop in at our West Cornwall office for a visit (and coffee or hot chocolate) or look us up at: www.bainrealestate.com.

Cordially,
