Another historic home, named in the Cultural Resources Survey Report by Li/Saltzman Architects and Professor Andrew M. Dolkart, is on the market. 5 Sherebrooke Road, a 6,300 square foot home on 5.31 acres has been listed at $6.850,000.
According to the report, the original owner of the 1902 home was probably W.C. White. The architectural historians find the house notable due to the following features:
This large, 2.5-story wood Colonial Revival house has two impressive elevations. The entrance front, facing away from Sherbrooke Road has a doorway set beneath a modest pedimented portico. The façade is articulated with multi-pane windows and has shallow projecting side pavilions. To the right of the entrance is a large window, probably lighting the stair. The garden front, facing the road, has a trio of arched French doors on the first story. The house is crowned by a sloping roof with large pedimented dormers on each slope.
The current listing is brief and fails to mention any interior features of the home: Here is the description from the Julia B. Fee/Sothebys website:
One of the most glorious properties in Scarsdale. Classic Residence, situated on 5.31 acres in the Heathcote Estate area. Expansive fields of green, mature trees, total privacy, tennis court. Ample room for expansion and swimming pool. Property is non-divisable. Estimated real estate taxes are $79,463.
Will this home meet the same fate as its neighbors at 3 Sherbrooke Road and 1 Duck Pond Road ... razed and replaced with a new McMansions? While the Village ponders possible preservation laws, developers are busy demolishing some of Scarsdale's oldest homes.
