If incredibly convenient access to Garwoods restaurant and bar and its iconic drink, the Wet Woody, is your cup of tea (or your cup of Wet Woody – and yes, that’s the last time I’ll use that phrase in this article), this lakefront property may be for you. Not only is this house right next door (stumbling distance) to Garwoods, but like the Carnelian Bay favorite, it is also right on the Lake.
One million three hundred twenty five thousand dollars is a screaming deal for anything on the lake, let alone on the north shore in a protected and centrally located bay. While some may not appreciate having Garwoods as a next door neighbor, it doesn’t diminish the fact that the property sits on one of the most beautiful sections of one of the world’s most beautiful alpine lakes.
Obviously its owners have come to the point where they are very, very serious about selling, but looking at its asking price history, that has not always been the case. The 4 bedroom, 2 bath home (with a 2 car garage) was originally listed at $2.5 million on March 6th, with the price coming down to $1,999,000 on July 28th. Its current price reflects a huge drop from the almost $2,000,000 asked in July, and a gargantuan drop from the original 2.5 million dollar original asking price! I asked Paul Smith, the listing agent, about these very substantial price drops, and his answer was simple: “They just want to get it sold!” If this price doesn’t do that, I don’t know what will.
