Real Estate Notes

Mercer County has a long way to go before it competes in high-end real

estate prices with Manhattan, where $1 million gets you a few hundred

square feet in a pretty decent location. Seven figures in Mercer

generally buys at least four bedrooms and three baths. But the $1

million mark is not quite as special as it was 10 years ago. For a

real stunner, a six bedroom house with multiple fireplaces, an au pair

suite, a media room, outbuildings, and several acres of seclusion, the

price tag is well above $2 million. Following are homes, ranging in

age from just a few years to nearly 200 years, selling within the past

six months.
