Heathcote Mansion on the Market for $11.8 MM

17HeathcoteRoadAn eight-bedroom, 12,306 square foot house on over 4 acres on Heathcote Road has been put on the market for $11,885,000. It is listed by William Pitt, Julia B. Fee Sotheby's Realty by the homeowner/agent Caroline Freidfertig. Real estate taxes on the home are currently set at $181,746.

Though Scarsdale property records and the real estate listing say it was built in 1928, the historians who did a historic resources survey in 2012 say it was built in 1905. The house, which was commissioned by Samuel Woolverton, Vice President of the Hanover National Bank and the historic resources survey for Scarsdale named it a candidate for possible historic preservation.


Here is what the survey entry says:
"This grand wood house on an expansive site is modeled on a Southern plantation. The 2.5 story main mass of the house has a monumental portico supporting a triangular pediment with an oval window divided into a complex pattern by curved mullions. Entrance is through a door capped by a fanlight with a web pattern. The house has a hip roof with dormers and is articulated by multi-pane windows. " The identity of the architect is unknown.


The current home has a gated entry, 18 rooms, 10 bathrooms, a 50-foot pool, spa, cabana and a tennis court. It was renovated in 2004.


The home is owned by Shlomo Freidfertig who is a prominent developer and has built many homes in Scarsdale.
