Dawn Knief and Marty Katchis of Julia B. Sotheby's have sold the home of Mary Wallach at 18 Sherbrooke Road for $7.2 million. The 7,834 square foot house was built in 1942 and includes six bedrooms and eight bathrooms. The house features an indoor spa with a 20 x 40 foot heated pool, gym, sauna and Palladian windows. For gardeners, there is a fully automated greenhouse. The house is on 3.02 acres, one acre of which is potentially a separate building lot at 20 Sherbrooke Road.
According to the NY Times, homeowner Mary Wallach was the wife of James G. Wallach, the chairman and chief executive of Central National-Gottesman Inc., a pulp, paper and newsprint marketing company. He died at the age of 55 at his home in June 1998 from a cerebral aneurysm.
Wallach became president and chief executive of Central National-Gottesman in 1979 and chairman and chief executive in 1997. The privately owned company was based in Purchase and had sales of more than $2 billion a year. When he passed away in 1998 he was survived by his wife of 27 years, Mary Kerr Wallach; two sons, Andrew and Scott, both of Scarsdale; and his parents, Ira Wallach and Miriam Gottesman Wallach also of Scarsdale.
For tax-watchers, under the revaluation, the home and 2 acres were assessed at $5,113,000 and the potential building lot adjacent to the property was assessed at $2,256,000. Together, they were valued at $7,369,000 and the property sold for $7,200,000.
Taxes on the home on 1.98 acres are $104,111 and taxes on the additional acre are $18,163 bringing the total to $122,274. If it was valued as a single lot with a home at a total value of $7,200,000, the estimated real estate taxes would be approximately $164,000 ($7.2mmm X .02281).
There was a rush of home sales in our area this week. In fact, my count shows that 26 homes closed in Scarsdale and Edgemont since August 20th ... too many to show on Scarsdale10583, but here are some of the notable sales.
