At the time the property was mortgaged, about 9 years ago, an extensive professional appraisal was made for the property. The appraisal was for $5.3 million US. That was for an old style colonial in less than perfect condition. Considering 9 years off appreciation, and the extensive renovations, this is truly an opportunity not to be missed.
