Like many older houses before it, a little cottage on Halsey Lane is officially just somebody that we used to know. Last year, preservationist Sally Spanburgh warned that a developer would replace the little house with "something larger and generic and void of the historic character." And now, voilá!
The new spec house is looking for $3.495—quite a bit more than the $925K the half-acre spread sold for last year. But the property now has quite a bit more to offer, including 3,000 square feet of living space, a sparkling new pool, and an amenity-filled lower level. Energy efficient heating and cooling systems and a ton of french doors round off the property. In a town where decked out new construction rules, maybe being generic isn't half bad.
