Adam Weitsman Wants to Demolish Home He Bought for $6 Million
Broome County businessman Adam Weitsman has plans to tear down another house he acquired for millions of dollars.
The Syracuse Post-Standard/syracuse.com reports Weitsman is seeking permission to demolish a 6,300-square-foot home to expand his estate in Onondaga County.
According to the newspaper, Weitsman bought the house on Skaneateles Lake several months ago for $6 million.
Now the owner of a scrap metal business based in Owego wants the Skaneateles village planning board to allow him to remove the home to add to his neighboring estate.
Weitsman has done this sort of thing before. The newspaper story reports he spent $2.5 million to buy a house on the other side of his mansion and then tore it down. He then constructed a $4.5 million pool where the home had stood.
Weitsman told The Post-Standard that friends and people who maintain his property now are living in the house he purchased in October. He said he's "in no rush" to tear down that building, indicating it might not be demolished for a couple of years.
The house, which was renovated in 1990, was constructed in 1900. It has four full- and two half-baths and a screened-in porch.
Weitsman did not return calls from WNBF News seeking comment about his latest demolition proposal.
