….and we’re back.
First of all, we acknowledge that this home was our Stalefish of the Year. We must say those pictures we posted do not do the home justice, and we’re a bit upset that we forgot our camera. A picture is worth a thousand words, and we really don’t want to write a thousand words.
Formerly owned by Ted Waitt of Gateway Computers, the entire home has been extensively remodeled, but maintains its original character. They spent around $8,000,000 on the renovation and it shows. There are some things that didn’t look totally tip-top, but that’s okay, we’ll let it slide. Every room in the house has million dollar views and you practically feel like you’re sitting on the water. The location alone is priceless. You are literally sitting on top of your very own point. You could probably put a lighthouse out there, and call it Point “my house” when you move in. Enough about the inside. We literally could go on all day talking about it.
What’s more important is the level of activity the home is getting. Most people think that homes like this don’t get many showings, and that is wrong. The phone is ringing, it has been in the New York Times, WSJ, and various other publications, and it is being shown quite regularly. In our humble opinion, the place will sell, and it will sell close to asking. It’s worth it. This is a trophy home. Plain and simple. Keep in mind it sold in March 2000 for $18,000,000 and now has $8,000,000 put into it. Sure it is a different market now, but you can’t easily price priceless.
