Next for the Wrecking Ball in Greenwich: 1871 Central Greenwich Colonial

An application has been submitted to the Town of Greenwich building department to demolish a house at 123 Park Avenue in central Greenwich (not the Park Ave in Old Greenwich).

The single family home, built in 1871, last sold on June 1, 2018 for $2,650,000

According to real estate description, “An exquisite 2008 restoration of this historic treasure blends 21st century sophistication with the charm of 19th century colonial revival architecture. Set amid the serenity of nearly one acre on a coveted in-town street, the home offers luxurious comfort and state-of-the-art amenities throughout a warmly inviting interior. Paneled reception hall with circular staircase and 14-foot ceilings. Magnificent three-exposure living room with double French doors to a covered porch and banquet-size dining room with marble fireplaces. Stunning center-isle kitchen with Viking, Wolf, Miele, SubZero appliances and breakfast area opens to private yard. Master suite with Jacuzzi and steam shower.”

The application for a demolition permit was submitted by Peter DaPuzzo back on June 28, which triggered the 45 day waiting period. If it weren’t for the request for stay of demolition filed by Stephen Bishop on behalf of the Historic District Commission on August 1, the first date the house would be demolished would have been August 13.

On September 7, the Historic District Commission wrote the building department a letter saying they had decided to lift the stay of demolition.

The first date the permit is now eligible for issuance is September 28, 2018.
