While top-tier sales in First Half 2009 have slowed dramatically, a handful of recent sales hint at renewed interest in estate-caliber properties, the hardest hit segment of our local real estate downturn.
For example, our sale of a vintage brick Georgian Colonial on 2.5 acres in Milton Point, Rye ranks as one of the region's highest sales this year.

Brokers Donna McElwee and Diana Plunkett of the Houlihan Lawrence Rye Brokerage represented the seller and buyer respectively on this property, last offered at $6,995,000.
Another southern Westchester County property in Scarsdale, most recently offered at $6,750,000 also ranked among the highest sales regionwide.
Also a brick Georgian Colonial, a popular architectural style for estate properties, this home was accompanied by a pool, tennis court and guest cottage.
