Wyndclyffe Update – April 2017

Local rumor has it that Wyndclyffe is under contract to a buyer who wishes to demolish the ruins. An application for a “Certificate of Removal or Demolition under Town Code Chapter 125, Zoning, Section 125-62, Historic Buildings, in the matter of the proposed demolition of the circa 1853 “Wyndclyffe Mansion” ” was filed with the Town of Rhinebeck Planning Board this past winter. This application seems to have slipped under the radar of many persons who would have been interested; the comment period ended February 6, 2017.

Thanks to one of our readers for passing on the link.

Here are some recent photographs.

    This will be a great loss if this house is demolished.
    Hope that they will think issue through before acting !

    And what a relief it will be to see it go. The secret is out. After 40 years the Hudson Valley’s longest running swan song takes the big dive. Time for lamenting has fizzled away. The kvetching topped out eons ago. Roll out the wrecking ball as it swings down upon the hideosity (new word?) that Wyndclyffe had become pulverizing it into oblivious dust so we all can finally breathe again!
