The market for Scarsdale real estateis heating up. Whether it’s low interest rates or a tough admissions season for New York City private schools, buyers are flocking here to begin an early spring selling season. According to Elise Flagg, Associate Broker at Houlihan Lawrence, “The real estate market has seen phenomenal activity since January. Showings are higher than they have been in months. Buyers seem to be back and are responding to well-priced properties. In recent weeks there have been multiple bids on quite a few homes, a positive sign for buyers and sellers.”
Another historic home to go down? The Committee for Historic Preservation released their agenda for March 20, 2012 and it shows that 3 Sherbrooke Road, built in 1902 on 4.85 acres in Heathcote will be considered for demolition. Village records show that the 7,000 square foot home also has a pool and a tennis court. The house is directly across the street from the house on the Duck Pond that met a similar fate last year. Currently a large new house is going up on Duck Pond Road to replace the original house. (Pictured above: 3 Sherbrooke Road)
