Bain Real Estate Cornwall Bridge 2016 Market Report

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO SEE THE MAP

Dear Neighbor:

Spring has finally arrived with warmer and longer days, green fields and tulips popping up. The Cornwall Country Market has an expanded kitchen to serve even more delicious offerings. James Idella and staff welcome all in a most friendly manner. We are fortunate to have a well stocked hardware store with a specialized paint center. Sportsmen flock to Harold MacMillan's sports shop and we all enjoy wine tasting at Richard Bramley's Cornwall Bridge Liquor Store. In Cornwall Bridge we have it all, from art (to be bought and framed) and Steven Speduto rugs to line our floors to the National Iron Bank that keeps us all in cash.

Last year we reported 9 sales in the Cornwall Bridge area totaling $4,011,000. This year we are reporting 12 sales totaling $5,666,295. Business in real estate is up!

A first floor master bedroom suite, kitchen open to the dining room, fireplace, and sliders open to the dining patio and yard with brook plus a detached barn with 2 bedrooms and an artist's studio awaiting renovation. 14 acres hold this 3526 square foot house with its mix of old and new, light filled and air conditioned.
