Will Judy Blume's Vineyard House be On the Market Forever?

New, 3 comments

Oh, Fudge! Best-selling author Judy Blume can't seem to sell her drop dead gorgeous Vineyard Haven estate.

Here's how the brokerbabble breaks down the swoon worthy 2.3 acre 7BR, 6.5BA compound:

Private waterfront estate on Lake Tashmoo with 5 separate structures including a 3500 sq.ft main house featured in Architectural Digest, a Hutker designed home perched on the water's edge, a water view 1 bedroom studio, a rustic guest cottage surrounded by gardens and a large shed/workshop. When you arrive at this property you will find colorful perennial gardens sprinkled around a rolling landscape with mature trees. Enjoy over 200ft of waterfront on Lake Tashmoo with 2 deep water moorings and access to a private beach on Vineyard Sound. This is truly the best kept secret on the Island!Apparently, the place has been kept a secret from buyers as well. We're pretty sure the property first debuted on the market back in October 2012 asking a little over $5,000,000, but perhaps we're thinking of another property since we can't find any evidence of that previous listing price. Regardless, by January 2013 the waterfront spread "From the imagination of celebrated author Judy Blume..." was looking for $4,995,000. Alas, the PriceChopper made a March 2014 appearance and brought the ask for Iggie's House down $245,000. If you lack compound interest, It's Not the End of the World, 49 Kuffies Point Way can be purchased separately for $2,600,000. Then Again, Maybe I Won't. Asking price for Blume's entire estate is $4,750,000.
