Midcentury Scarsdale home designed by Edgar Tafel dodges demolition

July 29, 2018

A 1950 Scarsdale, NY home designed Edgar Tafel is back on the market after the town’s Historic Preservation Committee denied an application for demolition in late May. Tafel was an apprentice to Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin, worked on several of Wright’s most famous projects including Fallingwater and the Johnson Wax Headquarters, and had his own successful small practice. One of his most notable works is the Church House designed for the First Presbyterian Church on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. Needless to say, potential buyers should be sympathetic to the home’s architectural significance and distinctive midcentury features. View the listing HERE
