While the Village ponders new historic preservation laws, the demolition derby continues. At the April 16 meeting of the Committee for Historic Preservation, applications have been filed to clear the way to tear down five more homes in Scarsdale. If the committee fails to find that these homes have historic merit, these homes could be torn down:
- 190 Brewster Road built in 1935
- 25 Innes Road built in 1939
- 23 Broadmoor Road built in 1930
- 18 Drake Road Built in 1921
- 45 Cushman Road Built in 1906
- 31 Wynmor Road built in 1927
Typically smaller homes are torn down and replaced with larger, more elaborate homes that utilize far more of the available lot. Trees are often sacrificed in the process.
Here are before and after photos:
11 Dickel Road, a modest 2,192 square foot home built on a half acre in 1921, recently sold for $1,010,000 and has now been torn down. It is being replaced with a 7,293 square foot home on the market for $2,895,000.
On Normandy Lane, a home built in 1928 was set far back on a 3 acre property surrounded by trees that blocked the view of the house from the street. Neighbors report that when the property was cleared to make way for a large new contemporary house under construction, over 100 trees were taken down. Here are photos of both the old and the new house.
