14 Manor Road

Yes, we know you’re thinking more about champagne right now than real estate, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t alert you to a major price change on a major home in town. The owners of the Hiram Cook House, the mansion built for the man who donated the land for Verona Park, have lowered the asking price again to $319,000. (The previous cut, on December 20, took it down to $339,900.)

When 14 Manor Road was first listed last year, the asking price was $475,000. The home, which sits on a half-acre of land on a dead-end street overlooking Verona Park, has four bedrooms, a large double living room and a good size kitchen. What it doesn’t have is modernity. As we noted in our first story on 14 Manor Road, the home needs extensive renovation.

But this is the kind of project that could be richly rewarded if you take it on. There’s a home of very similar vintage and size for sale at 110 Claremont Avenue that has been updated through the years. The asking price on the Priest House, as it is known, is $569,000.
