Bain Real Estate Cornwall Cream Hill 2018 March Market Report.
What an eccentric month February was! Snow, sleet, rain, ice, warm sunny days and it is supposed to be winter. Spring is definitely on the way bringing a new burst of energy to Real Estate. This neighborhood is one of the most active. There have been 6 sales since last we wrote, 2 of them land sales.
233 Sharon Goshen Turnpike is a 1978 contemporary 4 bedroom house high on a hill with 3 levels of living space. Beautifully landscaped with a heated in ground pool at the end of a long winding uphill drive, this sanctuary welcomes all. The bedrooms are on both the upper and lower levels. The lower level has a full walkout to the manicured grounds. Originally listed at $618,000 it sold in 213 days at $580,000.
30 Reed Brook Road is a 1999 contemporary Colonial at the end of a private road off Cream Hill Road. It sits on 3 acres, 4 bedrooms, eat in kitchen which opens to a family room with fireplace and a screened porch plus an attached 2 car garage. All the bedrooms are upstairs, including the master with a bath en suite. Originally listed at $625,000, it sold quickly at $500,000.
8 Town Street is an 1846 Colonial farmhouse of 3000 square feet sited on 16 acres. It had been purchased in 2008 for $530,000 and more than that had been spent in upgrades and remodeling, but it was incompletely finished. It included 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, redone kitchen, attic converted into a den, finished basement family room with a walk out. Originally listed at $610,000 in 2011 it closed for $400,000. This was an incredible buy!
214 Town Street is actually adjacent land parcels, one 42.6 acres, the other 43.51 acres.
All the land is either forest or farm land so the assessment is very low which translates to low taxes, but the land sold for $1,450,000.
191 Town Street is a beautifully finished cottage with 3 bedrooms sited on 3 acres. It was built in 1985 and extensively remodeled in 2006.
