Hampshire Will Stay Country Club

This just in: the new owners of Hampshire are NWR Acquisitions LLC, a Manhattan commercial real estate firm.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We are told they plan to keep Hampshire as a Country Club. 

The firm purchased the Club, which was unable to sustain itself financially, for $12.1 million dollars, winning out over a joint bid by the Town and Village of Mamaroneck to preserve the 108 acre tract as public land.

more details when we get ’em.

Stay tuned. Though the buyer claims to have plans to operate the property as a private club, maintenance of the property since the sale has been dismal (nearly non-existent) and there are no signs that the any club (even one limited to the pool and tennis, as rumored for this year) will open. The buyer is a developer, and I suspect the plans are for McMansions in the end.

It is the best solution. The Village owning the land for public recreation space was a very bad idea. Flooding, Road issues, traffic issues. Cove Rd is a mess and as a private road the residents are looking into legal ways to close it off as a pass through. Not deny access to the road but close it off so people can’t get through. There are safety issues on cove Road -the village won’t repair the road as well as water/flooding.
I support this totally. Parents shouldn’t be using this as a pass through to Hommocks school or let their kids take bikes to school on a narrow, potholed road with blind curves. I applaud that the property will remain a private club.

I’m sorry that the town(s) and village(s) couldn’t buy Hampshire for playing fields and green spaces, but I guess keeping it as a country club is better than a bunch of ugly oversized McMansions like we have at Cherry Lawn.
