Partial Demolition of 41 Olmstead Road Approved Plus Big Sales

41 Olmsted RoadAfter over a year of deliberation the owners of a Tudor style home at 41 Olmstead Road built in 1931 received permission to demolish 51% of the home. The family was originally denied permission to demolish the entire house by the Committee for Historic Preservation in September 2015. They returned to Village Hall in July 2016 with an application to demolish 51% of the house in order to enlarge and modernize it, but since only 4 of the 7 members of the Committee for Historic Preservation were present, their application was denied as the 3-1 vote was not sufficient to approve their application.

Subsequently they appealed the ruling to the entire Board of Trustees who held a hearing on November 9th. Architect Roz Young and attorney Lucia Chiocchio of the law firm Cuddy and Feder of White Plains were both present. Young showed that substantial renovations to the home in 1958 had significantly altered the original design and presented plans to renovate the home and carefully match the style of the façade.

The attorney presented her arguments as to why the home did not meet criteria for preservation. It should be noted that the record showed that descendents of John Quincy Adams resided there in the 1930's but there was no record that they were historically significant.

Reading the resolution at the November 22 meeting, Trustee Carl Finger said that the Board of Trustees had reviewed all criteria for preservation and found that the house was not associated with a historical event, not sited in a historic district and was not listed in the Cultural Resources Survey that identified homes with historical significance. They said that the architect Stanwood Phillips was not a master.

12DolmaRoadThe Board of Trustees voted 5-1 in favor of the resolution clearing the way for the renovation of the house.

An appeal to demolish a home at 12 Dolma Road that was denied by the Committee for Historic Preservation will be heard by the Committee of the Whole of the Board of Trustees on December 13.

Also this week, there were more big sales. See below:

Real Estate: A Super on Call in Scarsdale, Plus Home Sales and Featured Listings

handymanThough I don't miss living in an apartment in the city, I do miss having a super in the building to call when things go awry. And from the number of discussions I hear in the dale about finding someone to fix the washer, touch up the paint or haul off an old couch, I know that many of my neighbors feel the same way.

Enter Shawn Singer, a property owner and manager and 17-year Scarsdale resident who was often asked why he couldn't help out his Scarsdale neighbors the way he assists his tenants in Manhattan and the Bronx. After pondering the idea, he realized that many homeowners in the area would welcome help with home repairs and maintenance and would be willing to pay a house manager to do it.

Last year, Singer founded Palace Guards Residential Concierge Services to "make private homeowner's lives easier by taking the stress of home management and putting it on his shoulders."

Palace Guards does all the things you hire others to do – like changing air filters, power washing, fixing leaks, installing light fixtures, dealing with your sprinkler system and more. They call on reliable service people that are trustworthy and have been thoroughly vetted. Customers pay a flat monthly fee and get a discount on all their requests – or decline the monthly fee and pay a bit more for each service request.

Whether you don't know where to turn or don't have the time to take care of the issue, Palace Guards can lend a hand.

Singer says that Palace Guards performs a wide range of services from working with realtors to get homes ready for people moving here from out of town to assisting people who are moving out with de-cluttering, staging and essential home repairs. Current clients use Palace Guards to keep an eye on their homes when they're away and to serve as handymen for odd jobs around the house.

What was one of the strangest requests Singer remembers? Recently, a couple was relocating to Scarsdale with six pianos and wanted to know if the six instruments would fit in the den together and whether or not the floor of the den could bear all the weight. Singer determined that yes, the pianos would fit and the floor would hold.

Singer says that he "Likes to get his hands dirty," and is enjoying meeting and helping so many locals. Find Palace Guards at their office in Eastchester where they promise to entertain all your requests, no matter how difficult!

Both buildings are owned by the Scarsdale Historical Society and lie within the Scarsdale School District. The asking price is $895,000.

In an October, 2016 report from the historical society's President Randy Guggenheimer he reported that, "The cost of maintaining the Scarsdale Historical Society's buildings at 937 Post Road has far outstripped the benefits to the community of continuing to operate the Cudner-Hyatt House as a museum. The Cudner-Hyatt House cannot compete with other much more significant historic house museums, historic societies and libraries in our area. The Board of the Scarsdale Historical Society has concluded that the time has come to put the property up for sale."

The society will direct their efforts towards digitizing and preserving the history of Scarsdale, and cataloguing and making their historical documents accessible to the public for viewing.

Scarsdale BOT Turns Down Tax Phase In Legislation - Plus, Home Sales, Featured Listings and Weekend Open Houses

19 Leatherstocking LaneThough the idea of offering tax relief to the hardest hit residents from the 2016 revaluation seemed like a positive step, after hearing no support for the move the Scarsdale BOT voted unanimously against the resolution.

The resolution would have requested that legislation be introduced into the NYS Assembly and NYS Senate to allow residents who are STAR eligible (earn less than $500,000 a year) and received greater than a 25% tax increase to phase in their increase over three years. The loss in revenue from those residents would be made up in tax increases to the balance of Scarsdale taxpayers.

Deputy Village Manager Robert Cole estimated that at most, 130 residents would qualify for the relief, and this number might be further decreased by those who had their assessments reduced by the Board of Assessment Review this summer.

A special meeting of the Town Board of Scarsdale was held on Tuesday October 25, following the regular meeting of the Board of Trustees to consider the resolution to authorize the "Phase-In (of) Certain 2016 Residential Real Property Assessment Increases.

Mayor Mark gave each of the trustees an opportunity to state their view and they all concurred. Trustee Carl Finger called the resolution a "Well meant concept," and said though he was "sensitive to the impact to increasing taxes on a number of residents in the community," he had "not heard anyone favorably disposed to it. No one who would benefit has come forward." Therefore he said, "I find it difficult to adopt something that is not supported by the community."

Trustee Pekarek agreed with Finger, saying, "While it is humane and would supply relief, we didn't hear from anyone who would benefit. It would take significant effort. I would rather work on reforming the way properties are assessed."

Marc Samwick said, "The reval was intended to achieve equity. Similar legislation has enabled people in other towns to remain in their homes. Earlier in the summer we heard about similar hardships and this was designed to ease the burden for certain residents. But based on lack of community interest, I intend to vote against it but would reconsider it if community interest was expressed."

Jane Veron said, "When I first learned about this I was eager to explore it for Scarsdale.... especially because some felt forced to leave Scarsdale. But I have only heard negative comments. Residents were overwhelmingly not in favor. Given the lack of support I do not feel comfortable asking others to assume the additional tax burden."

Matt Callaghan said that this legislation would be perceived as an inequity. He said, "We have already raised certain people's taxes," and this "will cause taxes for others to go up. I am voting nay."

Trustee Stern agreed and Mayor Mark put the matter to rest, saying, "For all the reasons I have heard I am not in favor of this."
