Two Million Dollar Houses Top Sales

Two Million Dollar Houses Top Sales

Delaware County had two homes sell for more than $1 million this past week.

Builder Romenelli & Hughes paid $2,479,500 for the 1/4 acre lot located at 9559 Fair Oaks Drive in Powell. The development is also site of the 2016 BIA Parade of Homes this fall and is part of the former Shamrock Golf Club along Powell Road just west of Sawmill Parkway.

1685 Hardin Lane is a 4-bedroom, 5-1/2 bathroom home with 4,568 square feet and situated on 8.13 acres in rural Powell that sold for $1,275,000. The property went through foreclosure in 2014 and sold for $585,000 and then to FDT Group in April 2015 for $622,000. Not a bad return on the investment.
