Zillow boss Barton finally sold his house
After nine months of effort, national press and more than 4,500 page views on Zillow, Rich Barton has finally sold his Denny Blaine pad for $2.85 million.
The Zillow co-founder and chief executive announced today on the company blog that he’s signed papers and expects to close the deal in a few weeks.
The selling price on the four-bedroom, 3,740-square-foot 1904 charmer is above the $2.67 million Zestimate but less than the $2.98 million owner’s estimated value.
Barton came out OK but not as well as the previous owner, who bought the house for $1.38 million in 1999 and sold it to Barton for $2.39 million in 2002, according to the public records displayed on Zillow.
Here’s a gallery if you want to see inside the former home of a successful tech executive. Apparently the Bartons celebrated the sale (or Zillow’s funding?) by finishing all the wine in the cellar.
