UPDATE 7/7/08: Now it’s down to $549,000. Hey, that’s a bargain at half the price! I see that Sardelli Realty owns 6110, 6112 and 6114 Bellona. The only one with a price is 6110, for which they paid $495,000 in 2006. I’m guessing that’s because it was a house on a large lot that they tore down and subdivided.
I drive by this house at 6114 Bellona almost every day and have been curious about it. The house appears to embody all that is crap about new-construction homes: the garage is the main focal point, there’s no landscaping, no imagination, etc.
I looked today and they’re asking $599,000. (Update: Now it’s down to $579,000.) Here’s the best part. The Realtor’s description of the house begins with, “Suburban living at a city address.” Yeah, that’s just what I always wanted. An ugly house with a small yard on a busy street in a city whose taxes are double those of what I’d be paying six blocks away. Isn’t one of the main points of being in the city the fact that you usually get a house that has more charm and character?
