FROM: HISTORIC AREAS BOARD OF REVIEW, TOWN OF ORANGETOWN
HABR# 16-01: Application of Lariane Slavitt for review of an addition to an existing single residence located at 41 Closter Road, in the Town of Orangetown, Hamlet of Palisades, New York. Chapter 12, Section 12-4(A), Historic Areas Board of Review. Tax Numbers: 78.17 I 2 I 39; R-40 zoning district.
Heard by the HISTORIC AREAS BOARD OF REVIEW at a meeting held on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 at which time the Board made the following determination:
Ben and Laraine Slavitt appeared.
The following documents were presented:
- Architectural plans signed and sealed by Douglas A. Radick, Architect, dated of
12/8/2015 (two 2 pages).
Lariane Slavitt stated that they are proposing to add a one bedroom suite to the first level of the home; that her husband is 81 Yi years young and has a difficult time with stairs; that he has had four knee replacements already and cannot climb stairs any longer; that they love their home and want to remain in it; that the proposed addition will be harmonious with the existing building and the roof, siding, windows and gutters will match the existing house; that the fireplace proposed in the addition will be a gas fireplace; and the air conditioning and heating unit will be under the existing deck.
Ben Slavitt stated that after four knee replacements he can walk well on flat surfaces but he does have trouble with stairs;_thatthe existing house is only 2,600 sq. ft. and was built in 1927 before zoning was instituted and it was built in the front yard setback.
Keith Buterbaugh, 47 Closter Road, stated that the addition looks beautiful but he has concerns regarding the profile of the building because the building will be substantially higher on his side; and that he will address these concerns at the zoning board.
William Walther explained that the roof is not a dormer roof like the existing and it is a gable roof that matches another portion of the house; that there are no dormers and the proposed roof is not as high as the existing structure and the proposed addition is harmonious with the structure; and that is what the historic board reviews.
