Real Estate: Strong Sales, Weekend Open Houses and Letter from a Reader

2cooperstaricasePermission has been granted to demolish 2a Cooper RoadWe received this letter from reader Alan Sacks concerning the potential demolition of 2A Cooper Road:

I read of the proposed demolition of this building –as well as others—to be replaced by a modern white-pine-and-sawdust board McMansion.

The centenarian building is important. Not only is it an attractive century-old building, made by hand, it is “of” Scardsale, not merely in it.

In 1918 many buildings were constructed of the native oak and stone found on the property. Being made of quarried stones and quarter sawn trees from the lot on which the building stands, it is a thoughtful and a careful rendition of human engineering upon nature. When such a building is torn down, that ancient history goes into the dumpster with it and cheap fungible lumber imported from other places comes in. This seems a shallow and regrettable violation of our stewardship.

To this writer’s mind, this dignified building of an earlier and more optimistic age is a treasure. It should remain standing and given TLC. The whole area should be Listed, and then exceptions granted for the lesser stuff built from brought-in mass produced materials. Sadly, shallow lucre is turning Scarsdale into Disney Epcot.
