taxgrievanceWill rising interest rates cool the hot real estate market? This spring in Scarsdale, scant home inventory fueled the market and home prices went through the roof, with some selling at more than a million dollars above their assessed value.

However, now that interest rates on home mortgages have risen above 5%, analysts are predicting a tempering of home sales. A recent article in Forbes Magazine says, “In terms of purchasing a property, every 1% of interest rate increase on a buyer’s loan reduces their purchasing power by approximately 12%," … "In other words, if buyers do not have a hefty savings or an income that is beyond what was initially allocated, then the overall budget to purchase a home stands to decrease substantially.”

So though there is still a shortage of homes on the market, sellers may have to tone down their expectations for pricing, as mortgage interest rates are going to take a bigger bite out of buyer’s pockets. In addition to the rise in interest rates, recent declines in the stock market have also decreased home seekers buying power, so the market could be in for an adjustment.

treesWhen we saw piles of downed trees in front of 5 Heathcote Road we feared both the trees and the house were being torn down. The house is the former home of NY Times foreign correspondent Seymour Topping who said he paid $80,000 for the 13-room home in 1967.

However, a call to the Engineering Department revealed that the trees were being taken down legally, and that the house would be renovated, not razed. Phew!

The market is hot, hot, hot with multiple bids for scarce listings and price wars raging. See below for homes trading at more than a miillion dollars above their assessed values.

19DolmaRoadThe quest to tear down some of Scarsdale’s most beautiful homes continues this month with an application to raze 19 Dolma Road, a Colonial Revival home built in 1935. The home is just a few doors down from 11 Dolma Road where an application to tear down the house has been winding its way through NYS courts for a few years.

Steve Duke, the prospective buyer of 19 Dolma Road retained Lucia Chiocchio of Cuddy and Feder to file the application to demolish the home on his behalf. She argues that “there is nothing historically significant about this house. While Walter J. Collet, a prominent builder in Scarsdale in the 1902’s owned the property until 1926 he did not build the house at 19 Dolma Road. The property remained undeveloped until 1935 when the Whitsitts purchased the undeveloped lot. Similarly, the fact that a former Village Trustee and Mayor, Robert E. Christie, owned the property is no historically significant as the property was undeveloped when he owned it.”

The Village asked Andrew Scott Dolkart, an architectural historian, to provide his views on its historical significance.

He reviewed the homes’ notable owners which included Vincent P. Whitsitt, who spent his entire career at the Life Insurance Association of America where he rose to the position of manager and general counsel. Dolkart says, “The Whitsetts typify the successful business and professional people who moved to Scarsdale in the early decades of the 20th century at the time when the village was being transformed into one of New York City’s premier suburban communities.” Dolkart calls Dolma Road “one of the finest residential enclaves in the village,” and says, “it was cited as a significant architectural ensemble in the 2012 Cultural Resource Survey.”

About the house, Dolkart says, architects “Hall and Puafve designed a handsome Colonial Revival style brick house that remain almost entirely intact.” He says it is “beautifully proportioned,” and “symmetrical.” He says the house is a quintessential example of the Colonial Revival style with it s symmetrical massing, steep sloping roof, leaded glass entry and other features all adapted and indeed expanded in scale to the meet the lifestyle of an affluent suburban household in the first half of the twentieth century.

He concludes, “The Whitsett House at 19 Dolma Road retains its integrity to a high degree. It exemplifies the type of architecture that provides Scarsdale with its special character and it should be preserved and renovated so that it can provide housing with the community for many decades to come.”

The Committee for Historic Preservation will consider the application to raze the house at their meeting on Tuesday May 31, 2022 at 7 pm in Village Hall. See more about the house here.
