An empty five-acre lot at 3 Sherbrooke Road in the Heathcote Association is now on the market after the buyer tore down a 7,000 square foot house that dated back to 1902. Records from the Scarsdale Committee for Historic Preservation show that Jonathan and Kristen Korngold of Manhattan received permission to tear down the original house in March 2012. In January 2013 they applied to the Scarsdale Board of Appeals for a Special Use Permit to build an expansive estate whose size exceeded Village code. They received permission to build a new house and pool house and to renovate the guesthouse –which together measured 15,541 square feet, exceeding the maximum permitted coverage of 15,000 square feet. The property also has a har-tru tennis court and swimming pool. The property has now been assessed by the Village at $5,480,000 and is on the market for $6,900,000. Korngold paid $6,500,000 for the original house and the property.
The real estate listing says the building plans for the new house are also for sale – but not included in the asking price for the property. Here is the wording from the listing from Julia B. Fee Sothebys:
Outstanding house plans have been approved (and can be purchased separately) for an elegant and expansive Estate Home featuring every imaginable amenity including an indoor basketball/sports court, tennis court, putting green, swimming pool and pool house. A separate 1,200sqft guest cottage/garage, a rarity in Scarsdale, has been grandfathered to the property. Evergreens, beautiful mature specimen trees and naturally wooded surroundings offer privacy, peace and tranquility.
