Iconic Cooper Road Home to Stand for Now

2CooperRoadMany were distressed to learn that a developer had received approval to demolish one of Scarsdale’s most prominent homes. The 27 room, 10 bedroom, 10,596 square foot home originally sat on 3.75 acres at the corner of Cooper and Murray Hill Roads. Developer Bob Ben Simon won approval to subdivide the property into three lots in 2019, with the intention of building two more homes on the property. However, earlier this year, he claimed that he was unable to sell the house and applied to knock it down. He filed an application for consideration at the February 23, 2021 meeting of the Committee for Historic Preservation who sought the opinion of Architectural Historian Andrew Dolkart and held over their decision until their March meeting.

When Dolkart weighed in, he said “It lacks the originality of some of their other works,” and “architecturally it does not rise to the quality” for preservation…. Though it had interesting owners, none rise to significance.” He felt that the site had been compromised by the subdivision and did not believe it met the criteria for preservation.

Therefore, the committee approved Ben Simon’s plans to raze it.

Fortunately, last week the house was sold for $3,000,000 and the new owners intend to preserve it. It’s good news for residents who value Scarsdale’s historic homes and neighborhoods.
