12DolmaRoadThe Scarsdale Board of Trustees approved a hardship application for the demolition of an historic home at 12 Dolma Road at their meeting on Tuesday November 16. 2017. The owners were previously denied approval to demolish the home by the Committee for Historic Preservation who declared that the home met the criteria for preservation. It was designed by architect Lewis Bowman and built by famed Scarsdale builder in Walter Collet in 1929. The 4,558 square foot "English style" house was identified in the Cultural Resources Survey, a 2012 survey of Scarsdale's historic properties.

The Board of Trustees originally denied an appeal to the decision, finding that the home was associated with an event that made a significant contribution to broad patterns of Village history in that it was an example of Scarsdale's transformation into an upper middle class community and reflective of a period in the Village's history.

They found that the home was associated with Lewis Bowman, who they found to be a person of significance who designed 53 homes in Bronxville and whose work was frequently cited in architectural journals in the 1930's. According to the Mayor, "there was widespread recognition of Bowman's work."

They said that 12 Dolma Road was the work of a master and had "high artistic value." Bowman was a prominent architect and the design of the house includes many sophisticated examples of English architecture.

So why the reversal in their decision? What is the hardship? Experts provided evidence that the home is "functionally obsolete" because of deficiencies in its siting, design and layout. They said that the house is sited too far back on the property so that any renovations would intrude into the backyard which is too small. The home lacks an open plan layout, there is a deficiency of closet space, the bathrooms are too small, two of the five bedrooms are small servants quarters and there is only a 2-car garage.

They said that in order to appeal to today's buyers the home would need new plumbing and electrical systems, a kitchen/family room and 3-car garage, and that these two additions would cost $2,750.000. Furthermore the house would have to be moved forward on the property at a cost of $350,000. After keeping the house on the market from 2015 to 2017, the only offer the owners received was conditional upon approval to demolish the house. Furthermore the architect explored other permitted uses including a church, school, club or hospital and determined it was too small to convert for other uses.

History shows that the house was originally listed at $4,200,000 in April 2015 and after a series of reductions dropped to $2,775,000 by July 2017.

Trustees found that this significant drop in market value, plus consideration of these other factors supported that a hardship exists and therefore granted permission to demolish it.

Now that the demolition has been approved, the house is on the market again for $3,250,000.

This decision may set a new precedent for applicants who wish to demolish historic homes. If the Committee for Historic Preservation rules against the application, the owners can easily appeal and show that the historic home does not meet the needs of modern buyers seeking features like en suite bathrooms, combination kitchen/family rooms and an open layout. These were not features of homes built in the earlier decades of the 20th century, so most homes would fall into this criteria.

Another historic home that was approved for demolition in an appeal to the Scarsdale Board of Trustees sold this week:

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

spl reading galleryScarsdale Village Trustees received an update on plans for the renovation and expansion of Scarsdale Library from Daniel Heuberger of Dattner Architects on Tuesday night October 24. Heuberger provided a virtual walk through of the design plans for the library renovation, reviewing siting, materials, user flow, interior design, furniture, and the layout of the new addition. He explained uses of the new spaces including a café, conference rooms, and a technology center that can be used when the library is open or after hours as a community meeting space.

The presentation included detailed elevations and renderings so that residents could easily visualize the look and feel of the renovated space. There will be conference rooms with state of the art presentation technology and retractable walls so that they can be combined into a larger space if needed.childrens room

The library will be surrounded with two walls of windows to let light into the space. A bright, light filled reading gallery will look out on the pond and the trees. There will be soft seating, periodicals and tables for collaborative work.

The children's area will also be renovated with new seating and kid friendly access to materials. A children's program room will be added for kids events and programming.

The building will be handicapped accessible on all levels and it will be brought up to current energy code with insulation, new windows and fireproofing. See more here:
