Coalition Head: Abel Bradley House “Probably Will Be Saved”

bradleyfilm04110501.jpg
Eleanor Dickey, head of a coalition trying to prevent demolition of the Abel Bradley House, told a Westport Public Library audience tonight that she now thinks that the house “probably will be saved,” most likely as part of a larger house on the property. She made the comment at a screening of a partially completed documentary on efforts to save the 200-year-old house but provided no further explanation for her cautious optimism.  (CLICK TO ENLARGE ) Larry Untermeyer for WestportNow.com

Today’s WestportNow teardown is 351-361 Post Road West. The property, built in the 1950s by the late Westport builder Anthony Conte, includes now-empty retail stores and John’s Best Pizza as a stand-alone building. Conte’s son, Jim, will oversee reconstruction that will include a Peoples Bank and a new home for John’s Best, which has been there since 1966. The site once housed a motel, the White Birch Restaurant (see below), and a Greyhound Bus stop. The demolition application will be considered by the Historic District Commission at its April 12 meeting. (CLICK TO ENLARGE ) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Abel Bradley House Site May Contain Prehistoric Indian Remains

bradleyartifacts04060501.jpg
Preservationists trying to save the Abel Bradley house on the Westport-Fairfield border say there is an “excellent chance” of prehistoric Indian remains on the site. They say parts of a collection at the Fairfield Historical Society came from a site about a mile downstream from the Bradley House and “make it likely” that people who frequented the site also visited the Bradley House site. This link, they say, may be cause for an archeological site investigation under Westport zoning regulations. (CLICK TO ENLARGE ) Contributed photo

Postscript to a Teardown: 10 Covlee Drive

10coveleegone04020501.jpg
This teardown at 10 Covlee Drive in the Saugatuck Shores area was featured on Friday’s WestportNow only hours before it was demolished. On hand for the take down Friday were owners Jackie and Howard Mason (2nd and 3rd l) and their mortgage banker, Henry Weeks, from the Westport National Bank (l)—he said he came because he had never seen a house demolished. Howard Mason lived around the corner at 3 Covlee Drive until 1983. He said he always wanted to return to Saugatuck Shores so he bought the one-story, 1,700-square-foot house in October 2004 for $820,000 and plans to replace it with a 3,400-square-foot Colonial.

The battle between developers and preservationists over the Abel Bradley House on the Westport-Fairfield town line shifted to today’s Westport Town Hall brown bag lunch.

WestportNow Teardown of the Day: 100 Beachside Ave

100beachside03290502.jpg
Today’s WestportNow teardown is 100 Beachside Ave. The property, which actually is comprised of two parcels at 100-102 Beachside Ave. totaling just over 4.3 acres, changed hands earlier this month for $14.6 million—the most expensive property ever sold in Westport. A demolition application said only portions of the house would be demolished. Because the request concerns a structure more than 50 years old, it will be automatically considered by the Westport Historic District Commission. View is of the rear of the property facing Long Island Sound. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow contributed reporting for this item. WestportNow.com photo

Westport Teardowns Jumped 43 Percent in 2004

The number of demolition permits issued in 2004 in Westport jumped 43 percent—to 106 compared to 73 the year before, Building Department figures showed today. 0103054SmmokyLanegone260.jpg
The owner of 4 Smoky Lane demolished a 1951 house last week after building this new home elsewhere on the 1-acre property. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Local real estate agents said favorable interest rates plus the shortage of buildable land in the community accelerated the demolitions, which have been featured in WestportNow’s “teardown of the day” series since last October.

In 2002, there were 75 demolition permits issued.

The last demolition permit issued in 2004 was on Dec. 29 for 2 Lowlyn Road, which was featured as WestportNow’s teardown on Nov. 16.

A day before, the department issued a permit for demolition of a home at 4 Smoky Lane, off of Hillspoint Road. The 1951 home, featured by WestportNow Nov. 19, was taken down soon afterward. The owner, meanwhile, had built a new house elsewhere on the 1-acre lot and occupied it in October.
