Significant developments are on the horizon for the Merestead property in Westchester County, following a pivotal decision by a state Supreme Court judge to lift longstanding usage restrictions.
Nestled on a sprawling 130-acre estate, Merestead is renowned for its stately country mansion.
Originally deeded to Westchester County, full administrative control was assumed in 2000, albeit with certain commercial limitations.
The recent lifting of these constraints empowers the county to allocate trust fund resources toward vital repairs and development endeavors.
Furthermore, it grants the county enhanced authority over the management of the parkland encompassing Merestead.
Crucially, this decision ensures the preservation and meticulous management of Merestead's invaluable assets, including its esteemed artwork.
