50 acres of waterfront - WOW!

That sure was some price drop on the Helmsley place!

I don't know, 50 acres of waterfront is nice, but $190m?  Wonder what they used for comps, lol :)

Not my cup of tea.

I have always joked that if someone paid me $5m to live in New York City for one year that I could not do it.

Check out my blog post for today and you will see why I feel that way :)

Wow David.  That is some kind of shack.  One mile of shoreline.  How many house lots could that 50 acres be broken up into?

I would love to make an appointment to preview the home. But I will not be preapproved . I have not seen any home listed at that price.

Gita - maybe if we all pool together - like every single person in our MLS or something - we might be qualified to preview! 12 bedrooms, I bet we could find some way to work it amicably as a timeshare :)

This one is a bit above the budget we had in mind. It would be very interesting to tour the property.
