197 Centennial Farm Ln Gilbertsville, NY 13776

Sigh. Here we go yet again. Another spectacular house in a fantastic location and I'm just watching the prices fall while I continue to lust and dream... I've loved this one since 2007!
Prices have gone from $1,500,000 in 2008 to $995,000 in 2010 and now it's down to an almost affordable $695,000.

I've always enjoyed this particular property too. Many grand homes in Gilbertsville as of late have surfaced on the market from Tianderah (next to Centennial) to Rockwell Farm and Centennial's former 'polo house' (Meadow Brook) - however Centennial Farm has once again dropped off the MLS as of Nov 2011.

The absent owner (he lives on LI) certainly has been "spirited" in how he's gone up and down in price (as well as land offerings) then formally on the market then back off again.
