After bouncing on and off the market for three-plus years, Centerville's Aalsmeer has finally found a buyer. Originally listed in February 2010 for what would turn out to be an overly ambitious $2,300,000, the landmark property first caught our attention after its third meeting with the pricechopper in February of this year. Three years and three chops had brought the ask down to $1,545,000. As we swooned over Aalsmeer's indoor lap pool (during "Shark Week," naturally) and noted its historical significance, the chopper returned for two more meetings. By July, the price tag had been reduced to $1,350,000, just shy of a million dollars less than the original ask. At long last, a buyer made their move and earlier this month, Aalsmeer sold for $1,200,000. Not bad for a four bedroom main house, a one bedroom guest cottage, a separate indoor lap pool with an attached greenhouse, and a private dock on the Centerville River.
