The former home of Earl Graves at 8 Heathcote Road may be the next historic homes in the Heathcote Association to be razed. Last month, the Committee for Historic Preservation gave the green light for the demolition of 18 Heathcote Road and several more demolitions are in the works on Sherbrooke Road, across the way from the house on Duck Pond Road which was torn down in 2011. Graves' former home recently sold for $7.5 million. Originally listed at $11.5 million the 21-room home was on the market for almost three years. The house was originally built in 1907 and has 8,000 square feet of interior space, 10 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, eight fireplaces and an ice cream parlor. Outside, the 4.7 acre property includes a 60-foot swimming pool, cabana, tennis court, playground and a putting green. Real estate taxes are $95,405.
Unlike the house at 18 Heathcote Road that was approved for demolition, this home appears to retain its original façade and was the home of a well-known personality, Earl Graves, founder of Black Enterprise Magazine. Since two of the Committee's criteria to preserve the home may be met, perhaps this home will not go down. The committee meets on November 19th at 8 pm at Scarsdale Village Hall to consider the application.
