After dropping asking price to $7.25M, owner applies to demolish Scarsdale mansion

An “elegant, sprawling” eight-bedroom Colonial mansion built in 1924 in Scarsdale, N.Y., could soon be demolished in order to make way for something more modern on the 5-acre lot the home sits on.

Scarsdale10583.com reports that the 9,263-square-foot home went on the market in 2012 with an asking price of $12.995 million. The asking price has since been dropped to $7.25 million, and the owner has applied for permission to demolish it.  The Scarsdale Committee for Historic Preservation on Oct. 15 will consider whether the home is of historical importance.
