Greenacres Real Estate Report, More Demolitions Plus Sales, Featured Listings and Weekend Open Houses

3ClaremontScarsdale realtor Elise Flagg sent us sales data for Greenacres, where a school renovation is being proposed. How has this affected home sales? So far, it seems to have had little impact.

Sales figures show that from January 1 to October 31, in both 2016 and 2017, 35 homes were sold. The average price rose 11.6%, from $1,473,434 to $1,644,536. Sales for the rest of Scarsdale were up 10%, but it does appear that Greenacres is holding it's own.

A few land use matters of interest:

On Wednesday November 8 the Zoning Board of Appeals will consider a three-lot subdivision at the site of the Scarsdale Historical Society. The application calls for Cudner House to remain and two more building lots on the site.

On November 14 the Land Use Committee of the Scarsdale Board of Trustees will meet at 6 pm to discuss land use issues with the Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals and the Board of Architectural Review. The meeting will be held in the third floor meeting room of Village Hall.

On November 21, the Committee for Historic Preservation will consider applications to demolish the following homes:

  • 72 Stratton Road built in 1955
  • 3 Claremont Road built in 1902
  • 26 Fairview Road built in 1951
  • 6 Fenimore Road built in 1921
  • 2 Barry Road built in 1925

Country Style 1917 Home and Studio at 26 Cooper Road to be Demolished -- Plus Sales, Featured Listings and Weekend Open Houses

26CooperFrontIt seems that there is almost nothing one can do to preserve a historic home in Scarsdale. On October 10, Mayor Dan Hochvert announced that the Scarsdale Board of Trustees overturned a July 11 decision by the Committee for Historic Preservation (CHP) to deny permission to demolish a 1917 country style house and companion studio or garage (1926) at 26 Cooper Road.

In July, with a vote of 5-2, the CHP found that that the "house and the garage behind it were of substantial historical importance based on criteria specified in Village Code." They found that the architect was a master and that the house and garage embody "the distinctive characteristic of a type, period or method of construction that possess high artistic values. The main House and Garage are excellent examples of Country style architecture. Both structures are dominated by a steeply pitched, cross-gabled roof with mock-sagging at the end of the roofline and dormers. The arrangement of windows of different sizes and shapes as well as the prominent chimneys and chimney pots on the main House are also classic traits of this style."26CooperPath

Explaining their conclusion that architect Frank J. Forster was a master, the CHP decision quotes a review of a book by Forster called "Country Houses, The Work of Frank J. Forster." The review said, "This is the architect whose work is the basis for the majority of French Normandy, French Provincial or Country French inspired architecture in the United States by other architects in the United State after World War II."

26CooperStudioHowever the rub was that though Forster's name appears on the plans for the garage /studio, his name does not appear on the plans for the main house. Five members of the CHP said there was sufficient evidence to conclude that Forster did design the main house, due to similarities between the house and the garage and the house and other works of Forster. Also they said, "Moreover, it appears unlikely that an architect of Forster's stature would have undertaken the "garage" project, a small commission, unless he had designed the House."

Announcing their decision to overturn the CHP's ruling, Hochvert said that "the architect is unknown," and there was no proof to support the claim that he was the architect of the house. Hochvert said, "The record is legally insufficient to landmark the main building." About preserving the garage, he said it would be "senseless." He summed up by saying "there is a delicate balance between individual rights and the rights of the Village."

Sadly, the Scarsdale Village Trustees rarely exercises their rights to preserve historic homes. The research done by the CHP is laudable. However it seems that any developer or homeowner who is turned down by the CHP can almost be assured of winning an appeal to the Scarsdale Board of Trustees.

The Scarsdale Village Trustees have scheduled to meet with the land use boards to discuss current village code in November. But so many historic homes that gave Scarsdale its unique neighborhood character have already been razed. Undoubtedly the demolition will continue unless the trustees can toughen local laws and defend these laws when challenged.
