NOTE: The previous version of this story misstated the listing price. My bad!
“06880” is not in the habit of posting real estate listings.*
But this one — on 0.12 acres, with a listing price of $2.45 million — caught my eye.
One of the last residential construction lots available in Compo Beach … (available) for new home construction or home/office combinational use … Ideally suited for an ultra-modern home with ample room for parking. Ideal for someone looking to build in CT who works in area or even commutes (bus/train shuttle service on doorstep) into NYC via Metro North. Ideal for someone looking to build a wonderful home in a great community…
There was this photo too:
Neither did I.
That’s because it doesn’t exist. The image is actually an artist’s rendering of what could go there.
So where is this magical lot?
The listing also says:
Property is dual-zoned and owner operated a seasonal business for ,over 20 years … Existing structure has some history within the town and is 1,424 sq. ft. with detached two car garage.
That’s putting it mildly. The existing structure does indeed have “some history with the town.”
It’s 222 Hillspoint Road.
Though you probably know it as Elvira’s.
*It’s probably not a bad idea. It could be a great source of income. Especially if I ask for finder’s fees!
