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.

Here is what sold this week:

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.

These applications will be considered at the April 19, 2022 meeting of the CHP.

A few of these homes do not appear to have been listed at all, giving potential homeowners no opportunity to bid on them.

Here is what is on the agenda:

19 Dolma Road, built in 1935. Applications to raze both 11 and 12 Dolma Roads have been the subject of many Village meetings and architectural historian Andrew Dolkart recommended Dolma Road as a potential study area for neighborhood preservation in his 2012 report.

41HamptonRoadReplacementPlans to replace the historic home that was razed on 41 Hampton Road without permission from the Committee for Historic Preservation appear to be in flux.

Though the original plans that were submitted to the Board of Architectural Review incorporated about half of the original house, it appears that the historic portion of the house has now been demolished too.

In its place is a large wood box. Architect Miguel Sostra and builder Eilon Amidor were on the agenda of the April 18, 2022 meeting of the Board of Architectural Review where they were applying for a “change in elevations.” In a sloppily scrawled two-page application they asked to “change elevations. Stone and clapboard siding instead of stucco. Gable roof instead of (xxxx) and some window changes.” That was it. There were no renderings, plans or further details.

The BAR held over any decision on the project and suggested the two return in the future with plans for the house, landscaping and drainage.

11DolmaRoadIt looks like a historic house at 11 Dolma Road will stand, despite a court ruling in Westchester County Supreme Court in favor of the homeowners, who have applied to demolish it. In that case, Judge Susan Cacace overturned the findings of the Scarsdale Village Committee on Historic Preservation and the Scarsdale Board of Trustees with testimony from architectural historian Andrew Dolkart who found that the home clearly met several of the Village’s criteria for preservation. See all the details here:

The Committee for Historic Preservation voted unanimously to appeal that ruling at a meeting on March 14, 2022. Also present at the meeting were attorneys Patricia W. Gurahian and Linda B. Whitehead both from McCullough Goldberger & Staudt, LLP. The meeting was held in executive session. However a memo issues following the meeting notes that the decision will be appealed and that the homeowners have no right to raze the house while the appeal is in process.

Here is the memo:

RESOLVED, that the Committee’s attorneys shall file a Notice of Appeal of the Court’s Decision, Order and Judgment in an Article 78 Proceeding entitled Onedol Rock Holdings LP v. Village of Scarsdale, et. al., Index No. 54241/2021and take such action as is necessary to prosecute the appeal and enforce a statutory stay pending the resolution of the Appeal. The Resolution was unanimously adopted by the members present.
