Private Properties – Perspectives on Luxury Real Estate
The market for high end properties in New England strengthened in 2011. There are great deals being done. Prices are approaching those of 2001-2002. LandVest is seeing interest across our regions, with the strongest activity along the coast, from Mount Desert to the North Shore of Boston. Highlights include Story Litchfield’s, sale of the 15 million listing Indian Head, on Mount Desert Island, besting her previous record sale for the state of Maine.
LandVest’s private transactions have led the market, including in Maine a recent sale on Prouts Neck by John Scribner, and near Woodstock, Vermont of Lull Brook Farm, by Ruth Kennedy Sudduth, and Story Jenks. LandVest’s private listings help buyers and sellers while avoiding the public eye. Please contact any of our brokers with your specific area of interest. We are seeing landmark properties offered at tremendous values:
In Vermont, Wakanta, one of the best properties in the Mad River Valley, evokes Vermont vernacular with bold mountain views. All the amenities; open living areas, sleeps a crowd, barn, hot tub, trout pond and a great location close to Sugarbush and Mad River Glen.
On Boston’s North Shore, Aquila Farm, is an 80 acre equestrian estate within easy reach of 128 and downtown. Offered for $4,950,000, the property includes a main house, guest house, barns, has potential for subdivision and is a superb investment value.
