Controversial Home Sells for $3.9mm

4KingstonRoadA renovated and expanded Greenacres home that drew the ire of neighbors, has sold for $3,950,000. The Tudor style house, at 4 Kingston Road has been more than doubled in size and is now 7,400 square feet, far larger than most homes in the neighborhood.

The home sits midway up a steep hill that climbs from Brite Avenue, below the home, to Greenacres Avenue, above it. Developers installed a series of tall retaining walls to expand and flatten the backyard of the .63 acre property that now includes a “complex of patios, and a 14 X 30 foot pool and spa.” 750 neighbors signed a petition against the construction when the builder submitted plans to take down 30 trees in order to install a steep series of stone walls that tower over the yard of a Brite Avenue home that sits on a 40% slope below. The owner of that home has since sold his property.

Plans for 4 Kingston Road were ultimately approved by the Board of Architectural Review who does not have authority to deny approval for landscaping plans. Unlike the Town of Greenburgh, which has laws regarding construction on steep slopes, Scarsdale’s building laws have no such provisions.
