Homes to the highest bidder in central Greenwich

GREENWICH — There are many grand old homes in Greenwich. The town house units at 151 Milbank Avenue do not fit that bill.

“Brand spanking new,” said Jeff Hubbard, president of the real-estate auction house conducting their sale.

Completed last year, the units have gone through a bankruptcy proceeding, but they are now coming to market, according to the real-estate executives handling the sale.

“What’s nice about them, there’s four units, and they’re all individual, a little different, something for everyone. Some are more open, others have a breakfast area,” said Jamie Cote, the managing director.

Central Greenwich has become a hotter market for real estate in recent years, attracting newcomers who like the proximity to Greenwich Avenue and easy access to the train station.

“They’re very spacious, for people looking to downsize, or move to Greenwich for the first time and start a family,” said Cote. “It could be people who want to transition from the city and still want to be downtown.”

“It has that downtown feel,” added Hubbard.

The residences are 4,000 to 4,600 square feet in size, and all have three bedrooms — and detailing that give them a New England flavor. “They’re very bright, lots of windows, wood-burning fire places, they’re all wired for networking,” Cote said. “There’s built-ins, there’s wet bars on the main floor. Wide plank, oak wood flooring, nice molding throughout.”

Numerous older homes on Havemeyer Place and Milbank Avenue have been torn down in the last few years to make way for larger new homes selling in the $2 million range.

The units can be viewed during a number of upcoming open houses from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Aug. 13 and 20; and Sept. 9, 10, 16 and 17.

Evening hours for an open house will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Sept. 12 and 18.

The auction will be held Sept. 19.
