    Picture 1 makes it look abandoned. But the next pictures make the house look much better closer up. I would definitely change some of the interior but in its current state it looks very comfortable and livable. Maybe it doesn’t impress every visitor, but it actually looks like a home. I quite like it, and love the wooded setting.

    It’s a nice home. Exterior is plesant, and I love the fact that every single tree hasn’t been cleared from the lot. Interior is tired, but a little sprucing up and updating and it would be a very nice family home.

    On a side note, I thought Conyers Farm was exclusively in Greenwich (at least the postal address). Could it be that the relatively low price is because of the Armonk, NY locale? I always thought Conyers Farm was a $10 million+ community even in this economy.

      About 30% of Conyers Farm is in NY. The real estate and income taxes are much higher in NY than Ct, therefore the lower value. In Conyers Farm all mail is picked up at the main guard house, in Ct, therefore the Ct mail address even if you live in NY.

        Odd. So when you’re driving through the community is there a sign somewhere that says “You are now entering New York” or something to that extent? I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a gated community being divided up into 2 states. And is it me or does it seem like a hassle having to drive into another state to pick up your mail ;) ?

          Conyers Farm was an apple orchard-horse farm in 2 states, all in one block. The idea of a central mail pickup was to avoid problems of stolen mail leading to identity theft. At least that is the claim. Remember most of these people travel quite a bit, and mail from an overflowing mail box is an easy target for thieves.

        Agree with Daniel, that IS very odd. It’s such a bizarre concept that part of the community is in one state and other parts are in another. I assume the property lines follow the state line? Very weird, although I suppose it’s not all THAT different from living on a street that serves as the dividing line between states, like Kansas City MO & KS, and D.C. and Chevy Chase, MD for example. I would have expected whoever developed the land to avoid such a confusing status.

    Well, regardless of whether the home is in Armonk or Greenwich, I couldn’t get a hit on the address for either on bing maps.

    The home is absolutely beautiful. I do agree with Daniel that some minor updating would serve the interior well, but other than that this is really appealing. The design is simple but elegant and I love the location and land. Dare I say the price sounds very reasonable?
