Coventry Court Home on the Auction Block

2CoventryThe owner of a pricey home in the Scarsdale School District has made an unusual move to sell it quickly. With so many expensive homes on the market in town, and little movement for homes priced above $3 million, the Romans of 2 Coventry Court have retained Concierge Auctions to auction off their home. The home was listed last year for $4,995,000 but didn't sell and was taken off the market. On the tax roll it is valued at $5,175,000 and a similar house across the street sold for above $5 million to an embassy last year.

But last year has come and gone, and there seems to be few buyers for premium homes. Rather than sit and wait, the owners have opted to sell it to the highest bidder, setting no minimum price.

The home is now listed by Leslie Dorf of Houlihan Lawrence in Scarsdale, who will hold an open house on Sunday May 15 from 2-4 pm to allow potential bidders to tour the 11,000 square foot home with seven bedrooms and seven and a half baths. The home sits on .93 acres, and has a Shoreline pool and a dumbwaiter. Currently real estate taxes are $108,107 but they are being grieved.

According to Leslie Dorf, "The auction will take place on June 3 and will be hosted on Concierge Auctions digital platform called instant gavel. Potential buyers may have someone bidding for them by phone as well as Bidders are encouraged to submit earlier bids to receive a 10 percent rebate on the selling price if they eventually become the winning bid.

Mid-Century Modernized

colonyroadexteriorAn updated mid-century modern house is now on the market at 153 Old Colony Road in Edgemont. The original home was built in 1963 for scientist Gertrude Rothschild, who invented LED lights and holds the patent for her work. The house was designed by California architect Harry Wenning and was constructed of redwood, with large glass windows and a pitched roofline to let in light. Pictured here, it included an indoor pool that took up oldcolonypoola large expanse of the main floor of the home. When the home was put up for sale in 2013, it sat on the market for some time, possibly because buyers were put off by the large indoor pool.

When interior decorator and furniture designer Robert Gonzalez spotted the property he saw potential. He realized that the poolroom could become a large kitchen, dining area and living room oldcolonybeforeand that there was room to add a second story.

He got to work and made plans to redo the house as more of a contemporary than a mid-century. The result is a stunning home with lots of big, open living space, lit by new floor to ceiling windows that span the entire first floor. He added a see-through gas-powered fireplace, linking the living and dining rooms and painted the ceiling white to brighten the space. The copper kitchen island stands underneath two huge lighting fixtures and is topped with Cesar stone.colonydiningroom


In lieu of the pool deck, Gonzalez imported large slabs of black travertine from Iran, that were shipped through China.

He built a second floor addition that is accessed by a floating stairway. Upstairs there's a master suite with a large walk in closet, an expansive bath encased in Moroccan tile adjoining a deck with an outdoor shower.

Since the home is terraced, and perched high on a hill, it feels more like a mountain aerie than a suburban home.

See more about the home here, and check out interior designer Robert Austin Gonzalez' work here.

For Sale in Scarsdale: A Surge in Premium Priced Homes

38SageTerraceThough some realtors and residents are laying the blame for a stagnant market for premium homes on Scarsdale's tax revaluation, it's clear there are more factors in play than tax rates.

Nationally, an article in the Wall Street Journal on April 5, 2016 says that prices for luxury homes are being reduced, due to a slowdown in sales. And a recent report on first quarter sales in Westchester County from Julia B. Fee Sotheby's notes that sales of more modestly priced homes are up, but this does not hold true for the luxury market.

In southern Westchester, first quarter sales were strongest on properties priced below $2 million. Overall sales volume rose 13% for the first quarter of 2016 over 2015, indicating that demand is strong. In Scarsdale 43 homes sold in the first quarter of 2015, versus 30 in the same period in 2015, though the median sales price fell from $1,568,000 to $1,450,000. So Scarsdale is not alone in seeing a surge of buyers seeking homes priced between $1mm and $2mm.

Can Scarsdale meet the demands of these buyers? A closer look at the market shows that developers have been aggressively buying up and tearing down smaller or older homes and replacing them with premium priced homes that buyers may not be able to afford. There are currently 71 homes on the market in Scarsdale priced at $2,900,000 and above, and among these, 33 of the listings are for new homes.

Lewis Arlt of Houlihan Lawrence reported that inventory of homes priced from $3mm to $5mm almost doubled, with 63 active listings this year compared to 32 in that price range at the same time last year.

Commenting on the market, Arlt said, "Softening in the luxury home market is not due only to village taxes, but a widespread phenomenon. High end product is sitting everywhere. It may have many contributing factors: the stock market, the economy in general, uncertainty in the world, etc., but for whatever reasons, $3M+ buyers around here are scarce, and in some cases they're simply not perceiving value. There's an oversupply at the high end, and too many entry-level buyers for the scarce supply we have. Creating new entry-level housing, or upgrading existing stock, are tempting responses to the demand. But, the price of land in some local neighborhoods is expensive – too high for developers to build anything but a higher-priced home in order to make sufficient profit. So there's the conundrum."

In Scarsdale, there is clearly a surge in inventory of homes that buyers cannot afford. If developers could produce more entry level or moderately priced homes, their product would be priced to sell. Instead, too many large, pricey homes are sitting on the market. Listings for these new homes do not even include real estate taxes, as they are not assessed until the sale is recorded.

Here's a list of the 33 new homes priced at $2,900,000 and up that are currently for sale in the Scarsdale School District.
